BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - A high school football player who sustained a blow to the head during a game in Western New York has died.

The Buffalo News  says officials at Women & Children's Hospital in Buffalo announced the death of 16-year-old Damon Janes on Monday night.

Janes was a running back on the Westfield/Brocton football team and lost consciousness after a helmet-to-helmet hit during a game against Portville on Friday. He was a junior at Brocton Central School.

The cause of death has yet to be determined.

Janes' parents released a statement expressing their "gratitude to those who have supported and prayed for Damon and his family."
