REPORT: Two High School Basketball Players Suddenly Collapse Mid-Game and Pass Away on the Same Day


A pair of teenagers from different states both collapsed and died during their high school basketball games on Tuesday.

Texas sophomore Devonte Mumphrey and Illinois Senior Cameran Wheatley tragically passed away playing the game they love.

I played high school varsity for three seasons, and basketball was a big part of my youth.

This is NOT normal and will never be normal.

Mumphrey, who attended Alto High School, was named All-District 22-2A Newcomer of the Year in 2021.

The Tyler Morning Telegraph writes:

Family members say an Alto High School sophomore who collapsed during a basketball game Tuesday night and later died was a “kid who touched everybody.”

His cousin on Wednesday identified Devonte Mumphrey as the player who died during a home Yellowjackets basketball game, and she said he loved sports, and his family and friends.

“You couldn’t have met a better kid,” said Jessica Hackney, who referred to her cousin as Vonte. “He had respect. I never saw him with an attitude.”

Hackney said her cousin played basketball, football and baseball but that basketball was “his greatest love.”

The same night Mumphrey collapsed, nearly one thousand miles away, Bremen High School’s Cameran Wheatley also fell onto the court and was later pronounced dead.

Parent Heart Watch reported:

Cameran Wheatley was a senior at Bremen High School.

The 17-year old was on the basketball team, which traveled to Chicago High School for Agricultural Sciences Tuesday for a game. It was there when tragedy struck.

Wheatley collapsed and had to be transported to Christ Hospital, with an EMT performing CPR, but he later died. Students said they found out what happened from their teachers Wednesday.

“He worked hard at basketball. I feel bad for him cause he’s only 17,” said Joey Chicocki, a student.

Administrators with the school said they are working with Wheatley’s family, students and staff. Bremen’s principal issued this statement.

“We are extremely saddened by the loss of our student-athlete. He has been a great role-model in every sense and he will be missed,” the statement said, in part.

ABC 7 Chicago added:

Wheatley’s father said his son had a clean bill of health and had played different sports for nearly 10 years. Cameran was the middle of three kids, with a younger sibling at Bremen.

Cameran’s friend Hugo Silva remembered his pal, saying, “You could always go up to him, say hi to him, ask him how he was, how are you feeling. He was always there for you if you needed him as well, and I will miss him.”

WGN9 News shared this video report of the tragedy:

As Infowars noted:

The teens’ vaccination statuses are unknown, and autopsy reports have yet to be released.

However, healthy athletes don’t often collapse and die, and cases of this happening have been increasing since the experimental vaccine rollout began.

Young, healthy athletes do NOT suddenly collapse while playing sports at this unprecedented rate.

At Least 69 Athletes Collapsed in One Month From Sudden Heart Problems; Many Passed Away

I played basketball throughout my youth and not once recall witnessing an event like the two tragedies mentioned in this report.

This is gut-wrenching and will NEVER be normal.

I refuse to acknowledge the psychopaths who attempt to normalize these heartbreaking stories.
