Our hearts and prayers go out to the family of Hopi High School football player Charles Youvella who died Monday night after suffering a traumatic brain injury during an Arizona playoff game.

According to a news release from the Arizona Interscholastic Association, the 5-5, 125-pound wide reiver and defensive back died while in the hospital with his family in attendance, including his father, who is the school's athletic director.
