WASHINGTON - Community members attended a wake for a star high school quarterback who collapsed after taking a hit on the playing field last weekend.

Authorities say 17-year-old Evan Murray died from massive internal bleeding caused by a lacerated spleen.

The wake for the popular three-sport star and honors student at Warren Hills Regional High School was held Wednesday at Faith Discovery Church in Washington Township. The school will close for Thursday's funeral at the church.

School officials say the football team will continue its season Saturday when it hosts Voorhees High School in a game that was initially scheduled for Friday night.

The matchup was also supposed to be the homecoming game for Warren Hills, but those festivities have been postponed.
