Funeral services for high-school basketball star

Posted: Updated:

A high-school basketball star, who died suddenly, will be laid to rest Saturday.

Terrell Coleman, a freshman at Miller Grove High School in Lithonia, passed away October 27 after collapsing on the court. The cause of death remains unknown, although Coleman's mom said her son did have a heart murmur and a leaking heart valve.

Coleman was rated one of the 15 best freshman basketball players in the country. One recruiting service said his talents were light years ahead of players his age.

His jersey was retired Friday night at an emotional ceremony full of family, friends, and classmates.

Funeral services are scheduled for 11 a.m. Saturday at New Birth Missionary Baptist Church in Lithonia.
