| by Michael Allen

Kenney Bui, a 17-year-old student at Evergreen High School in Washington, passed away on Oct. 5 due to an injury that he suffered during a football game on Oct. 2 while making a tackle.

An unidentified source told KING 5 that Bui suffered a traumatic brain injury during a game between Evergreen and Highline.

"This is a devastating loss for all of us -- Evergreen students, families, and staff, and our entire Highline community," Highline Public Schools Superintendent Susan Edfield said in a statement.

The Highline School District has decided to cancel Evergreen's game against Lindbergh that was scheduled for Oct. 9, and is providing counselors for Bui's classmates who held a private vigil at the school on Oct. 5.

Bui is the fourth high school football player to die in the U.S. in the past month from a game injury, reports the Seattle Times.

In Washington State, David Young Jr. is still hospitalized at Harborview Medical Center in Seattle after suffering a neck fracture that he received on Oct. 5 while playing for Adna High School. A GoFundMe page has been set up to help with his medical bills.

Ramon Angel Oros was flown to the same hospital on Sept. 25 after he suffered a head injury from a game while playing for Pateros High School.
