HARTSVILLE, SC (WIS) - A high school football player has died after he collapsed on the field during a game Friday night. The game was stopped after halftime.

Hartsville Mayor Mel Pennington says the police and fire chief confirmed Ronald Rouse has died.  

The 6'3'' 305-pound was holding his chest when he collapsed. The roster from the game Friday says Rouse was a senior offensive lineman.

After receiving some care on the field, Rouse got up and was helped off the field, but he collapsed again on the sidelines.

Rouse was given CPR and shocked with a defibrillator before the ambulance arrived to take him to the hospital.

Players and coaches from both sides prayed as medical personnel tended to Rouse.

Hartsville was hosting Crestwood.

After halftime, the stadium's Public Address announcer said because of the severity of Rouse's condition, the game would be stopped.
