    Bryce Turner, a 19-year-old redshirt sophomore on the University of California-Berkeley football team, died Saturday, six days after suffering a medical emergency near his Southern California home, UC said on social media.

    Turner had been hospitalized near his Bellflower home since Dec. 30, when he suffered an undisclosed medical emergency following a workout.

    "No words can accurately describe the pain we feel in our hearts right now," Golden Bears Head Coach Justin Wilcox said Saturday on the Cal Football Twitter page. "We'll always remember Bryce and how he impacted all of us with Cal football."

    Turner, who played cornerback, appeared in one game this season with the Golden Bears.
