Texas High School Football Player Drowns While Swimming

SAN ANTONIO (July 21, 2014) Joshua Biggles, a San Antonio high school football player, drowned while swimming over the weekend at Paradise Canyon Recreation Park just south of Medina Lake.

Biggles was found dead Sunday afternoon in about 15 feet of water, a sheriff’s office spokesman said.

The drowning appears to have been accidental, the spokesman said.

The rising junior played linebacker at Sandra Day O'Connor High School.

Students and friends set up an online fund to help pay for his funeral and were planning a candlelight vigil at the high school.
