A Seattle high school football player who was injured during a game last week has died. Highline Public Schools spokeswoman Catherine Carbone Rogers says Kenny Bui died late Monday morning. Bui was injured during the fourth quarter on Friday. He was taken to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle where he underwent surgery and had been in critical condition over the weekend. Rogers says students and others at Evergreen High School are grieving and the school district is working to support them. District superintendent Susan Enfield says it's a devastating loss for everyone. Bui's death follows the recent death of another high school player after a game injury. (More football stories.)
