A school district in upstate New York has canceled the rest of its football season because of the recent death of a player.

Damon Janes, a running back for the combined Brocton Central School/Westfield Academy and Central School football team, died last month after losing consciousness from a helmet-to-helmet hit that occurred in a game the prior weekend.

As a result, the Westfield school board unanimously approved a recommendation to cancel the remainder of the football season, according to a statement on the district's website.
