It was one year ago this week that LaPorte student athlete Jake West died during football practice with an undetected heart condition.  Praxis Media Group produced this feature to for the IHSAA to honor the memory of Jake during the telecast of the State Football Finals.  Since then his family has started a foundation to encourage families to have their children tested for these heart defects which can cause the heart to suddenly stop beating.

Feature originally aired in November 2013 during IHSAA State Football Finals Telecast.
