Herkimer College community mourns loss of soccer star

By WKTV News

(WKTV) - Autopsy results of a Herkimer College soccer player who collapsed and died in his dorm room Saturday are still not available.

But tonight, Wehrum Stadium, where 22-year-old Peter McAvoy of Scotland led the Generals to their third straight national championship this past fall -- and scored the only goal of the title game -- will be filled for an emotional tribute.

According to Jason Palcovic, the assistant soccer coach at the college, Pete McAvoy meant so much not only to the soccer team, but to the entire college. He says he is expecting a bigger turnout for Monday evening's memorial than the school has seen for national championship celebrations.

The memorial is at 7 p.m. Monday at Wehrum Stadium. To watch the broadcast online, click here.
