Clayton High School is mourning the loss of a student-athlete.
Hogan Teem, a senior baseball player at Clayton, died after collapsing during a conditioning session on Thursday, teammates told WRAL.
According to teammates, Teem collapsed during an off-season workout and CPR was performed before he was taken by ambulance to the hospital. He died some time later.
Clayton's boys and girls basketball games at Garner High School scheduled for Friday have been postponed. A make-up date for the games has not been announced.
Teammates said Teem was popular on and off the field.
"He would always find a way to brighten your day no matter what," teammate Nathan Lee said. "Even in baseball and everything going on outside the lines, outside the field, (it) didn't matter because Hogan gave 110 percent. He made you want to give more toward your game."
