The high school football player’s father, Kevin Moran, insisted to the Advocate that the exact cause of death was still unclear.
“It was heart failure,” Moran said, adding, “People don’t want to let you heal … I’m so upset.”

He admitted his son had “not been ill” in the days leading up to his death before he became unresponsive and was taken to a hospital, where he died Sunday, the Advocate said. It was not clear from the report when the teen had been tested for the killer bug.
“He was a fun-loving kid,” Moran told the paper. “All he wanted to do was help his mom and dad — get to the NFL and take care of us,” he said of his son’s dream life as a pro player.
