Timari Rivera, a senior at Staples High School, died suddenly from a previously existing medical condition.
A 6-7 native of Bridgeport, he was a member of the Wreckers’ basketball program. Tryouts for this year’s team have been postponed by COVID, to January 19.
A scouting report on social media said he had “the unteachables in D1 size and strength and a soft touch….an excellent target and a scoring threat.”
School officials are providing support to Timari’s friends and classmates, and to the Rivera family.
No further information is available at this time.
