Search teams recovered the body of a southern Minnesota teen from Lake Elysian Saturday, KEYC reports. The high school football player went missing after the boat he was in with four friends capsized around 6 a.m. as the group was duck hunting.
A senior at Waterville-Elysian-Morristown high school, Brady Hruska was the only one that didn't make it back to shore. Two others were transported to the hospital.
Waseca County News says Hruska was a wide receiver and cornerback for the Waterville-Elysian-Morristown high school football team. The team is scheduled to play in the 2AA section semifinals versus Medford High School at 7 p.m.
The coach tells the county newspaper that Hruska was the team's leading receiver.
Lake Elysian is located in southern Minnesota, about 25 miles southeast of Mankato.
Friends and community members are expressing their condolences after hearing the tragic news.
