McIntosh (Ga.) reeling from death of player

Chase Burnett, a 16-year-old sophomore and junior varsity soccer player at McIntosh (Peachtree City, Ga.), died late Friday after smoking synthetic marijuana known as “Spice,” according to a story in the Atlanta Journal Constitution.

His father, David Burnett, was quoted in the AJC as saying, "If my son’s tragic mistake can save the life of another child, then his life will not have been in vain."

McIntosh is expected to start 10 players when it next takes the field, this Friday, in memory of Burnett.
