Midshipman Fourth Class (freshman) Will McKamey, 19, of Knoxville, Tenn., passed away while in a coma Tuesday at Baltimore Shock Trauma.

The death comes three days after Midshipman McKamey collapsed during football practice on Saturday morning.  Since then, his family has been at his bedside and they have been overwhelmed with support from classmates, teammates, coaching staff and Naval Academy leadership. Midn McKamey was an Oceanography major in 3rd Company, and he was member of the varsity football team.

One day a year, Navy is the scum of the earth, but the other 364 they are our brothers and sisters. We lost one of our own today.

Fair winds and following seas, brother.
