SPARTANBURG, SC (FOX Carolina) – A student athlete at Spartanburg High School was taken to the hospital after collapsing and being revived by coaches Tuesday night, according to Athletic Director Todd Staley.

Staley said Tyshun Moultrie, a student-basketball manager who also played football for the Vikings in the fall, collapsed after the team returned from a game against Riverside. It happened in the hallway outside the basketball locker room as the players, coaches and managers were unloading their uniforms and equipment.

Two coaches performed CPR and administered a defibrillator until EMS arrived.

“The initial thoughts were that it was a seizure but doctors were still conducting test this afternoon to get more answers,” Staley said Wednesday.

The school district said Thursday Tyshun is out of the hospital and "recovering nicely."

Spartanburg High School’s athletic family is still mourning the losses of a student athlete and a coach who passed away days apart.

Football player Nick Dixon died during surgery on Jan. 11 and Coach Bryant Rose passed away Monday.
