A Henry County student died Friday afternoon.

Jason Holland, a sophomore at Ola High School in McDonough, died after being hospitalized Wednesday evening, a spokesperson for Henry County School System said.

J.D. Hardin said the incident that led to the hospitalization did not occur at school, at football practice or even immediately after football practice.

His cause of death has not been released nor has his age.

"We were saddened to learn of the passing of one of our Ola High School students this afternoon," a statement from the school system reads. "Any time we have a student pass, it is tough for everyone. As we remember this loss, our thoughts turn to the family of this young student and the Ola High School family, and we ask for the same from everyone concerned."

Counselors and support staff will be on hand for grieving students and faculty.
