HERKIMER, N.Y. (AP) — Authorities say an autopsy shows a junior college soccer star who collapsed inside his upstate New York apartment died of natural causes due to a heart arrhythmia.
Officials at Herkimer County Community College said 22-year-old Peter McAvoy of Dundee, Scotland collapsed April 19 at his apartment on the campus of the Mohawk Valley school.
Autopsy results were released Wednesday.
McAvoy was an All-American and captain at Herkimer, where the defender was one of the most popular students.
The Generals have won three consecutive national junior college championships, with McAvoy playing major roles in the last two.
