This is a young man from the early era of football when it wasn't that unusual for players to DIE on the field.
The image dates from about 1895- 1910-- maybe something in the uniform can narrow that time period down?
The young man appears to have had a very rough game. His jersey has numerous tears and holes. It looks as though one of his sewn in shoulder pads was partially torn off.
