Omaha school district officials are confirming the death of a high school student who collapsed after football practice.
The 16-year-old junior, Wilson Vili, had been at Benson High School practice on Tuesday.
District spokeswoman Luanne Nelson says the boy left practice to get some supper, then collapsed at the restaurant.
Vili was taken to Nebraska Medical Center, where he died.
There is no information yet on whether the boy had been injured during practice or what caused his collapse.
Nelson says grief counselors will be at Benson High on Wednesday.
