More sad news today out of Arkansas where a 15-year old Gurdon High School sophomore died during his team's football practice.

Law enforcement authorities are reporting that Montel Williams died after practicing for about an hour-and-a-half on Tuesday evening.

Officials are not saying with the death is heat-related, but an autopsy is being conducted.

Williams is the fourth player to die during the first two weeks of fall practice.  An assistant coach in Texas also passed away on the practice field last week.
