      Buffalo teen injured in football game dies

      A high school football player who sustained a blow to the head during a game in Western New York has died.

      The Buffalo News says officials at Women & Children's Hospital in Buffalo announced the death of 16-year-old Damon Janes on Monday night.

      Janes was a running back on the Westfield/Brocton football team and lost consciousness after a helmet-to-helmet hit during a game against Portville on Friday. He was a junior at Brocton Central School.

      The cause of death has yet to be determined.

      Janes' parents released a statement expressing their "gratitude to those who have supported and prayed for Damon and his family."
