An East Bay community is grieving the loss of a 17-year-old boy who collapsed and died while playing a basketball game Friday night in El Sobrante.

A coach for Calvary Christian Academy told the San Francisco Chronicle that Joshua Ellison played the first five minutes of the game then sat down on the bench and collapsed.

Ellison was co-captain of the team and his coach says he was in excellent physical shape.

An autopsy is scheduled for Monday.
