Former Mater Dei water polo standout and rising USC freshman Jon Walters, The Register's player of the year two seasons ago, died Wednesday of a heart attack, his father, Bill, confirmed moments ago.
Walters, 19, fell into a coma Jan. 1 and had been in the hospital since, his father said. Walters died Wednesday afternoon at Western Medical Center, his father said.
Jon's brother, James, was a teammate at Mater Dei and a senior this past season for the Monarchs. James has committed to USC.
Jon Walters played at Newport Harbor as a freshman and then transferred to Mater Dei in a move that helped build Mater Dei into a powerhouse.
