Yep. In 1956, Tad Wettfitte overran the endzone at Sniblet field, broke through the fence into the adjacent natatorium, where he drowned. Since then, in his honor, many groups have started football pools.

Loads of professional football players have died... I think you mean have any football players ever died while playing? The answer is yes, too many to mention. The two most recent professional footballers to die whilst playing (as of 17th June 2010) are Guran Tunjic of Mladost FC, he collapsed from a heart attack and actually received a yellow card as the referee thought he had dived, only to find out the real reason Tunjic collapsed. He died in May 2010 and Wilson Mene of Prek Pra Keila FC died 8th May 2010 after collapsing during a league match. Also, in March 2009, an Iraqi footballer was shot dead by a spectator as he was just about to score an equalising goal in the last minute.

Ironically, the only NFL player to have ever died on the field did so with no one touching him. Chuck Hughes was only 28 years old when he died of a heart attack on the field in 1971.
