          This is a sad story.

          Do you think the altitude had something to do with it?

              I am betting 6'3" and 310 might have had something to do with it.

                    49ers offensive lineman Herrion dies at 23
                    ESPN.com news services

                    DENVER -- San Francisco offensive lineman Thomas Herrion collapsed in the locker room and died Sunday morning, shortly after the 49ers played the Denver Broncos in a preseason game. He was 23.

                    Herrion, a 6-foot-3, 310-pound guard, was on the field for San Francisco's 14-play, 91-yard drive that ended with a touchdown with 2 seconds left.

                    Players had finished listening to coach Mike Nolan address them in a postgame meeting when Herrion collapsed. Medics administered CPR on him and took him to an ambulance that rushed him to a nearby hospital.

                    Niners linebacker Julian Peterson told the San Jose Mercury News players were holding hands in postgame prayer when Herrion "just toppled over."

                    Nolan told the Mercury News the team's medical staff "immediately went to him" when Herrion collapsed.

                    "We were all told to stay back so the medical staff could do their work," he said."

                    About three hours later, 49ers spokesman Aaron Salkin confirmed that Herrion had been pronounced dead. The cause of death was not immediately known.

                    The San Francisco Chronicle reported that television footage showed Herrion walking off the field after the 49ers' touchdown drive, with nothing apparently wrong. According to the paper, Herrion's face gave no sign of distress in the footage.

                    "This is a colossal tragedy for the 49ers and the entire NFL community," Salkin said. "We still do not know all the details. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Herrion family."

                    The death comes a little more than four years after offensive lineman Korey Stringer of the Minnesota Vikings died of heatstroke during a training camp practice on a day during which the heat index soared to 110.

                    Since Stringer's death, NFL teams have increased their efforts to teach players about hydration and how to manage the heat. They have been experimenting with sensors to measure players' core body temperatures, although those by themselves wouldn't be able to prevent a heat-related death.

                    Temperatures were in the mid-60s with 50 percent humidity Saturday night in Denver, although experts say heatstroke can occur even in cool conditions.

                    After the game, Nolan said he had no comments about San Francisco's 26-21 loss to the Broncos.

                    "There are more important things on our mind than the game," he said. "Right now, our thoughts and prayers are with Thomas Herrion."

                    Shortly after that statement, the Niners got dressed and boarded buses that took them to the Denver airport for their flight back to California. Salkin said coaches notified players of the tragedy at the airport.

                    "Last night before we boarded the plane, the coaches grabbed our team together and gave us the news," Niners defensive lineman Marques Douglas told ESPN Radio on Sunday morning. "At that time, we just kneeled and prayed. We had a moment of silence for him. We knew that, the team knew that it was in God's hands."

                    Herrion was in his first year with the 49ers, after having played in NFL Europe with the Hamburg Sea Dogs.

                    Herrion, a first-year player with the 49ers, played college ball at Utah and spent part of last season on the San Francisco and Dallas practice squads. He also played this season with the Hamburg Sea Dogs of NFL Europe.

                    "He was extremely loved and liked by many people in the locker room," Douglas told ESPN Radio. "[He was] a jovial guy who loved to joke around. Just a guy who loved life."

                    The native of Fort Worth, Texas, started every game at left guard in the 2003 season for Utah and was a team captain, when current 49ers quarterback Alex Smith played his sophomore season at quarterback.

                    Herrion had four siblings -- two brothers and two sisters.

                    Stringer's death was thought to be the first of its kind in the NFL. In 1979, St. Louis Cardinals tight end J.V. Cain died of a heart attack during training camp. Chuck Hughes, a wide receiver for the Detroit Lions, died of a heart attack Oct. 24, 1972, during a game in Detroit against the Chicago Bears.

                    In April, Arena Football League player Al Lucas of the Los Angeles Avengers died of a spinal-cord injury he endured while making a tackle.

                    Information from The Associated Press was used in this report.

                    "Thomas Herrion, a first-year guard on the 49ers, collapsed in the locker room following the game. He was immediately treated by team physicians, the medical staff and paramedics. He was then transported to St. Anthony Central.

                    "We received word a short time later that he passed away. This is a colossal tragedy for the 49ers and the entire NFL community.

                    "We still do not know all of the details. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Herrion family."

                      The "athletes" are just to big to ever really be in shape. I am surprised more of them don't die. In 1985 The Refrigerator was an oddity of size on the field.

                      In 1976 there was 1 player listed at or above 300 Lbs.

                      In 1995 there were 131 listed at or above 300 Lbs.

                      Today there are 375 listed at or above 300Lbs.

                      We are looking at fat men who might have a little skill...
