BERKLEY - Frontier graduate and Cal Berkley football player Ted Agu died suddenly in February of a heart condition, according to the official report.
The 21-year-old collapsed during a supervised conditioning drill at Berkley Feb. 7. Team physician Dr. Casey Batten says Agu was taken to the team facility immediately.
Specifically, Agu died of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, or excessive thickening of the heart muscle without any obvious cause, according to the Alameda County coroner's office.
The genetic condition is the most common cause of sudden cardiac death in athletes.
