    A hospital spokeswoman in eastern Texas says a high school quarterback has died after collapsing on the sideline during a game.

    Memorial Hermann Baptist-Orange Hospital spokeswoman Mary Poole told The Associated Press that West Orange-Stark senior Reggie Garrett died at the Beaumont hospital about 9:30 p.m. Friday. She said no cause of death has been determined, and an autopsy was ordered.

    The Beaumont Enterprise reports that Garrett collapsed on the sideline during the second quarter shortly after throwing his second touchdown of the game against Jasper. Head coach Dan Hooks says Garrett appeared to suffer a seizure.
