Earlier this week we mourned the loss of Grand Rapids Drive swingman Zeke Upshaw, who collapsed at the end of a regular season game and was rushed to the hospital, but ultimately passed away.

Dr. Stephen Cohle, who conducted an autopsy, informed WOOD-TV that “sudden cardiac death” was the cause for Zeke’s collapse.

Knowing the cause of death does little to comfort those affected by his passing. We urge all athletes, professional or not, to take care of themselves to prevent such tragedy for themselves and their families. We continue to reach out to the Upshaw family with reverence as they work through this unfortunate trial.
