(Newser) – An Arizona teen died after suffering a hit to the head in a high school playoff football game Saturday. Seventeen-year-old Charles Youvella died at a local hospital just days after he was hit in the game, a 60-6 loss during which Youvella scored Hopi High School's only touchdown. Youvella appeared to get a bit shaken up on one play, then collapsed two plays later. He was in critical condition by the time he arrived at the hospital.
