A former Christ School basketball player has died after collapsing during a game Monday night in Winston-Salem.
Josh Level attended Christ School before transferring to New Garden Friends in Greensboro. He collapsed near the end of a game with quality Education Academy and died later at Baptist Medical Center.
Josh's family says he didn't have any pre-existing medical conditions. The coroner says they still don't know what caused him to collapse.
Coach David Gaines says level was a fun-loving kid who was close with his teammates. Gaines says the Greenies are taking it hard and their thoughts are with Josh's family.
Shannon Hale, a senior and team captain at Christ School will wear Josh's jersey this weekend when the team plays in the state tournament.
