WSU Player Dies

Winona State University student athlete Shawn Afryl passed away Monday while working out with some of his football teammates at Maxwell Field.

Afryl, a 22-year old from Skokie, Illinois, was a recent transfer student. He joined the WSU community this summer and enrolled as a Social Studies - Teaching major.

Head Football Coach Tom Sawyer says in a statement .... "In the time Shawn was on campus, he showed a lot of people what a great fit he was going to be not only for our football program but for our campus as well." He did an excellent job as a counselor during our team camps, and his leadership qualities and maturity were a valuable asset to our successful camps. He will be sorely missed."
