CBS SportsLine.com wire reports

TAMPA, Fla. – A South Florida running back Keeley Dorsey collapsed and died Wednesday after a team conditioning workout at the school's athletic facility.

The 19-year-old freshman died at University Community Hospital, South Florida said in statement.

Dorsey was a graduate of Tallahassee Lincoln High School.

"The USF community is extremely shocked and saddened by the death of one of our student athletes on campus today," South Florida President Judy Genshaft said. "There is nothing more tragic than the loss of one of our students, and our thoughts and prayers go out to Keeley's family, friends and fellow athletes and students."

Dorsey was given first aid before he was transferred to the hospital, the school said.

A telephone message left with South Florida's athletic department was not immediately returned. A hospital spokesman did not immediately know Dorsey's condition when he arrived.

I remember when Walter Campbell died at FAU during men's hoops practice…and they weren't even doing anything…they just had begun to stretch and he slowly bowed his head into his chest and didnt move…the guys were all shouting at him, "Walt, cmon man stop playing around…" he past away right under the goal post on the North end of the arena…it was a very sad time…

As Talon mentioned Prayers to his family and friends…Hope he is eternally at Home now…

It was Walter Turner who died, not Campbell.

And since his death, FAU now requires echocardiograms for all athletes. Or did last time I checked anyway.

How long ago did this happen to Walter Campbell? It's very sad what happened. You don't wish that upon anyone especially a 19 yr old kid

My two favorite teams are FAU, and who ever is beating FIU!
