The Navy football team has lost one of its football players tonight.
Midshipman freshman Will McKamey passed away while in a coma Tuesday night while at Baltimore Shock Trauma. He has been in a coma since Saturday morning when he collapsed at the Midshipman spring football practice.
McKamey was just 19-years-old. He was also a member of the Midshipman’s Fourth Class, as well.
After being rushed to Baltimore Shock Trauma, his family has been at his side. Over the past several days, he has been joined by classmates, teammates, the Navy coaching staff, and the Naval Academy leadership.
“We are all so very heartbroken by the death of Midshipman Will McKamey,” said Naval Academy Superintendent VADM Mike Miller. “This is devastating news for his family, his classmates, his teammates and the entire Naval Academy family. We offer our deepest condolences to Will’s family, friends and shipmates in the wake of this tragedy.”
McKamey was majoring in Oceanography during his short time at the Naval Academy. He did not play a snap for the Midshipman during the 2013 season.
“During this most difficult of times, first and foremost, our prayers and thoughts turn to Randy, Kara and their beautiful family,” said Ken Niumatalolo, USNA Head Football Coach. “Our deepest and most sincere condolences go out to their entire family and friends. As our Navy football family mourns the loss of one of our brothers, we also celebrate and honor his life. He loved his family, his friends and his teammates. The Brotherhood loves you! Keep the ball “high and tight” in Heaven.”
McKamey was going to play the SB position in the Midshipman’s triple-option attack. During his high school career, he had more than 2,000 rushing and receiving yards.
He leaves behind parents Randy and Kara McKamey.
