17-Year-Old Totally Healthy High School Student Suddenly Dies at Hospital After Collapsing During Fishing Tournament

The small town of Winnsboro, Texas, is grieving the loss of Kale Robinson, a beloved high school student and passionate fisherman. Robinson tragically lost his life after participating in a fishing competition last weekend.

The 17-year-old junior from Winnsboro High School, who was also a member of the Winnsboro Fishing Team, was participating in a tournament organized by the Texas High School Bass Association (THSBA) at Lake Cypress Springs when he unexpectedly collapsed during the weigh-in on Saturday.

Despite efforts to save him, Robinson could not be revived at the hospital. Currently, no information has been disclosed regarding the cause of his death.

The Texas High School Bass Association shared a heartfelt message on Facebook, expressing profound sadness about Robinson’s sudden passing:

“It is with great sorrow and a heavy heart that we announce the untimely passing of one of our own, Kale Robinson from the Winnsboro Fishing Team.

Kale was an avid fisherman, and had fished with THSBA for 3 years. We find some solace in knowing that Kale was surrounded by friends and family, doing what he loved, and even catching his personal best.

We are just so deeply sorry for the loss of this incredible young man who had a bright future ahead of him. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him.

We ask for the continued prayers of Kale’s family, friends, and Winnsboro Fishing Team as we all grieve during this difficult time.

To Kale’s parents, grandparents, and all that knew and loved him, we are truly sorry for your loss and you have our deepest sympathies.

Today, we pray for those whose hearts are laden with sadness and grief for losing a loved one. May they come to You, Jesus, to find rest for their weary hearts and broken spirit. I pray that You would guard their hearts and minds with the kind of peace that can only come from You. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.”

The association, along with the entire fishing community, extended their heartfelt condolences to Kale’s family, friends, and teammates, acknowledging the profound loss of a young man with a bright future ahead.

“It seems only right that the day he caught his personal best he also woke up in the arms of Jesus. Please pray for his family, friends, and all of the Winnsboro community. He will be greatly missed,” wrote Fun N Sun Adult Youth Tournaments- East.
