A GoFundMe page has been established for Michael Sprague, 149-pound redshirt senior at American University, whose father Steve Sprague suffered a fatal cardiac event 30 minutes after his son wrestled his last collegiate match at the 2019 NCAA Division I Wrestling Championships in Pittsburgh on Friday.

Here's how the GoFundMe page described the situation:

"As many of you know, Steve lost his beloved wife nine years ago. Losing both parents has been overwhelming for his two children. Please consider helping out Steve's loved ones through this difficult time as they navigate this tragedy and move forward in life without him. Donations will go directly to his children to help with funeral expenses."

"(Steve Sprague) was an amazing husband, father, brother, son, and friend loved by all. "

As of 6 p.m. Eastern Monday, the fund to assist Michael Sprague and his siblings had raised approximately $8,300 of its goal of $25,000 within the first 24 hours the page had been posted.

Michael Sprague was seeded 28th in the 149-pound bracket at the 2019 NCAAs at PPG Paints Arena this past weekend. He dropped his first match to Princeton's Matthew Kolodzik 3-2 before defeating Fresno State's Khristian Olivas on Thursday nigh. On Friday, Sprague earned a tiebreaker win over No. 11 seed Joshua Heil of Campbell University before falling in a tiebreaker to University of Pennsylvania's Anthony Artalona.

Sprague completed his four varsity seasons at American with an 85-61 career record, tying him with Danny Mitchell for 13th on the all-time wins list at AU. He ended this season 25-11.
