GRANITE CITY, Ill. (KMOV.com) --  A teenager collapsed and died at a Granite City high school football camp Wednesday afternoon.

Toney Graham, 13, of Granite City, collapsed during pre-practice stretching after 4:00 Wednesday.  Coaches rendered aid to Graham, but he passed away at Gateway Regional Medical Center after paramedics arrived. 

The coroner in Madison County reports an autopsy showed no signs of foul play, but did show evidence of cardiac disease. Teammates told authorities Graham was laughing and joking with them before he collapsed.

Graham had no history of medical problems and there was no report of complaints of illness.
