MACON, Ga. — Southwest High School is planning a balloon release to remember a 15-year-old football player who died after practice last month.
According to Bibb Schools spokeswoman Stephanie Hartley, the release will take place Friday at the Southwest vs. Howard game.
Rising sophomore Joshua Ivory Jr. collapsed during practice on the night of July 26 and died shortly after at a Macon hospital.
Ivory's death is still under investigation, and autopsy results were inconclusive requiring further tests.
Southwest head coach Joe Dupree is back on the job after the Bibb County School District placed him on administrative leave.
Hartley says offensive coordinator Robert Cummings remains on leave.
