Young Guilford County football player died Tuesday after health complications at football practice on Monday

Terrible news today on the local Greensboro/Guilford County High School football front….

Karson Cross was just getting started on his high school football career at Page High School and about to begin his time as a student-athlete at Page HS.
from the News and Record site/
Karson attended Cornerstone Charter Academy last year. He was remembered Wednesday as a “a delightful kid,” said Traci McKee, who teaches eighth-grade science at the school.

“He was happy-go-lucky,” McKee said. “He was outgoing — very athletic.

Just getting ready to enter the 9th grade and the news hits hard coming in from last evening/Tuesday…..

Last night/Monday night at the Page football practice, Karson had health issue problems. He was airlifted to the UNC Medical Center in Chapel Hill, North Carolina.

For a time there Karson was in stable but critical condition, but as is the case so many times, his condition went/headed in the wrong direction and Karson Cross passed away.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Karson Cross family and to the entire football family at Page including Coach Kevin Gillespie, Coach Weeks, Athletic Director Rusty Lee and many others in the Page football family and especially right now, our thoughts are with the Karson Cross family….

Please remember them and be mindful of them today…

Thank-you for remembering them and the Page football family…..
