Adam Griffo coached Brown in football at Westhill.
“It’s been a tough morning,” he said. “A lot of kids texting me. It’s not something you want to wake up to, that’s for sure. It wasn’t a good morning for those kids. I feel bad for him and his family.”
The Westhill district announced Brown’s death on its website:
“The District is saddened to hear of the sudden passing of one of its students, Zechariah Brown. We share the sadness of the community in this significant loss.”
Griffo said Brown didn’t play football last fall because he wanted to concentrate on basketball, since he hoped to play that sport in college.
“The Zach I knew, he was nice to everybody,” Griffo said. “When he played sports, he could be a handful. We used to tell him your passion for winning, it takes you to a different place where you don’t always listen to people. I thought this year in basketball, how he grew, he was getting out of that. That’s the sad thing. We’re not going to be able to see that growth in college.”
