SPRING VALLEY -- A high school is mourning the loss of one of its students.

17 year old Daniel Lule collapsed during a football practice Wednesday. He went to high school in Spring Valley, north of Peoria.

On Thursday, the practice fields were empty. The football team met, but it was to remember their teammate.

The superintendent says Lule was a model student.

"He was very quiet, soft spoken and as I said, a hard worker. A quiet leader and the students followed his dedication and hard work," says superintendent Mike Struna.

An autopsy was schedules for this morning to determine the cause of death.
