A Long Island teenager has died after suffering a serious injury during football practice, police say.

The death occurred Thursday morning at Sachem (SAY'-chehm) East High School in Farmingville. Two players apparently fell, however, which resulted in the log hitting Mileto.

No other players were injured. He played cornerback and wide receiver for the Junior Varsity team previous year, according to FOX5NY.

"It's very big. It's like a tree, and it's a challenge for people who weightlift", Schledorn told the AP.

Although school officials did not comment on the drill, Douglas Casa, the head of the Korey Stringer Institute at the University of CT, had some concerns about the difficulty of the exercise for high schoolers.

Mileto was taken to Stony Brook University hospital where he was pronounced dead. The log fell and struck Joshua Mileto, a student at the school, in the head.

Grief counselors are at the high school, and Suffolk County Police have opened an investigation into the accident.
