Posted May 30, 2008
Greensboro, N.C. — Funeral services are Sunday for a North Carolina A&T State University football player who died Wednesday from complications of heat illness.
On Friday, students and faculty gathered at a memorial to remember Chad Wiley.
Wiley, 22, collapsed Tuesday after a supervised voluntary workout on campus, officials said. An A&T athletic trainer treated Wiley on the field before he was transported to Moses H. Cone Memorial Hospital.
A&T officials said Wednesday afternoon that Wiley had been running hills during a workout when he became dizzy. A trainer gave him water and he continued his workout. He lost consciousness inside the training room.
A native of Black Mountain, Wiley was a business management major and a three-year letterman for the Aggies. He had started on the offensive line for two years.
