— -- A high school football player died at a Seattle hospital today, days after he suffered an injury while playing, officials said.

Kenney Bui, a high school senior, died before noon PST today, a rep for Harborview Medical Center told ABC News.

Bui, who played wide receiver and defensive back, was injured during the fourth quarter of a Friday night football game, according to ABC affiliate KOMO-TV in Seattle.

It was unclear what his injuries were, KOMO said. The cause of death was also not clear and the medical examiner could not immediately be reached for comment.

Susan Enfield, the Superintendent of Highline Public Schools, said in a statement today: "It is with great sadness that School Board President Bernie Dorsey and I share with you that TEC High School senior Kenney Bui, who was critically injured in Friday night’s Evergreen v. Highline football game, died this morning.

This is a devastating loss for all of us -- Evergreen students, families, and staff, and our entire Highline community.

Our deepest condolences go out to Kenney’s family and all who knew him. Please join us in keeping them in your thoughts and prayers."
