KANSAS CITY, MO–A coroner report has been released for the Spring Hill Football player who died recently. Michael Handler, Deputer Johnson County Coroner said that Nathan Stiles had a previous head injury that had not healed. Handler also explained that Stiles died from a rebleed of a subdural hematoma he sustained in a game earlier in the season. A subdural hematoma is a bleeding between two layers of tissues between the brain and skull. Experts said about 100,000 high school athletes suffer concussions each year, but a subdural hematoma is rare. Handler said Stiles likely sustained the first injury during a game in early October. He also said that the injury was healing when Stiles’ head hit the ground after a tackle on the final game of the season on October 28th. Stiles died the next morning.
