Greene, a senior, collapsed in his home Nov. 14 after being "lethargic" all day and asking for an ambulance, according to police and fire officials who received a 911 call at approximately 4:22 p.m.

Paramedics at the scene determined Greene had gone into cardiac arrest. He was pronounced dead at Johns Hopkins Hospital at 4:59 p.m.

Greene was on the junior varsity last season, but according to coach Paul Smith, was expected to be a key member of the varsity this season.
