Jackson, MS (Vocus) October 30, 2009 -- Middle Line Backer Jared Ferguson of Centre College in Kentucky felt his heart racing after playing Millsaps College homecoming game on Saturday, October 24, 2009.

"I had been feeling feverish before playing, but I played the whole game," Ferguson said. "Then I collapsed."

In a normal heart, electrical signals use only one path when they move through the heart. This is the atrio-ventricular or A-V node. As the electrical signal moves from the heart's upper chambers (the atria) to the lower chambers (the ventricles), it causes the heart to beat.

This condition is called Wolff-Par
