Army Player Killed After Being Struck by Train

— Army freshman John Heinmiller died early Sunday morning after being struck by a train in Garrison, N.Y. According to the Minneapolis Star Tribune, Heinmiller was standing on the tracks when a northbound Amtrak Express train hit the 19-year old about 30 miles north of New York City.

There were no indications of foul play or suicide, said Tom Kelly, a spokesperson for the New York Metropolitan Transit Authority.

Heinmiller played in only one game last season for the Black Knights, after graduating a standout two-sport varsity athlete and honor student from Eden Prairie (Minn.) High School in 2000.

Services for Heinmiller will be held on Thursday at the Pax Christ Catholic
Church in Eden Prairie.
