Michigan high school wrestler dies after emergency at school

Ryan Estrada, a wrestler at Saline High School in Michigan, died Saturday afternoon after he became unresponsive after school Friday.

The junior was found unresponsive in a locker room while preparing for wrestling practice. His teammates contacted school staff. Emergency responders arrived at the school, then transported him to University of Michigan Hospital in nearby Ann Arbor.

The cause of Estrada's death has not been made public.

Estrada was a multi-sport athlete for the Saline Hornets. In addition to wrestling at heavyweight, he was also a defensive lineman on the football team, and a thrower for the men's track and field team.

"Ryan will be remembered for his humor, his big smile, his love of University of Michigan athletics, and his gregarious personality," Saline Superintendent of Schools Scot Graden wrote in an email to Saline High parents Saturday. "Our hearts and thoughts go out to Ryan's family, friends and teachers."

Athletic director Kirk Evenson wrote the following message on the school's athletics website:

"He will be missed dearly by his friends, coaches and teammates," Evenson said. "Our thoughts are with his family! Ryan will forever be a Hornet!"

Funeral arrangements had not yet been announced as of Saturday evening.
