    An Amherst College student who played on the school's football team has died during spring break in Mexico City.

    Officials at the Massachusetts college said in a statement that senior economics major Andrew Dorogi died Friday. The cause was not provided.

    Dorogi played tight end and scored a touchdown in the Division III squad's season opener last fall.

    The school's website says he was from Cleveland and attended the University School in Hunting Valley, Ohio.
