School officials said 17-year-old Ryan Fischer was found unresponsive at home Friday morning. Superintendent Ron Caniff said Fischer had gone to bed with no unusual symptoms the night before.
His team was scheduled to play in the Division I state tournament semifinals Friday night against Detroit Catholic Central. His family and school officials decided to proceed with the game, but Grandville lost 3-0.
Fischer assisted in a game-winning overtime goal Wednesday as Grandville defeated Grand Rapids West Catholic 3-2.
Fischer was also a standout football and baseball player, won academic all-conference honors, and served on the student government executive board. He had planned to enroll at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point.
