Several hundred people assembled on a crowded football field in Elwood New York on Thursday evening, greeting each other with handshakes and hugs. Many of them wore football jerseys and team colors of Shoreham-Wading River High School.
But this was not a joyous crowd gathering to cheer on their favorite team. They were there to celebrate the short life of Tom Cutinella, a 16-year-old student who had died on the same field just 24 hours earlier.
The sudden death wasn't the first one on the gridiron this week. Two other students died while playing high school football in the past seven days, raising questions about the sport's safety and prompting schools across America to take special precautions to keep their players safe.
