Bentley basketball player dies during game
A Bentley University basketball player died after collapsing at a men’s recreational summer league game in Watertown, university officials said.
Joseph “Joey” Glynn, 19, was taken to Mount Auburn Hospital, where he later died.
Glynn received a full scholarship to Bentley, according to a statement published on the New England Recruiting Report website in February 2012.
“I loved the kid, he was a great person,” program director and coach Mike Crotty Jr. told ESPN Boston. “He was quiet until you got to know him, and then he was a funny kid with a great personality that everyone responded to. He was a great brother to all of his sisters, the kind of son you would want to have—didn’t do anything wrong, did what he was asked. If I had a daughter someday, my hope is that she would meet a guy like Joey Glynn.”
