West Texas teen who survived 2 strokes scores TD
LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) — Just three months after Kenbriel Hearn emerged from a coma, the 18-year-old football star scored the most memorable touchdown of his life.
The senior at Memphis High School suffered two strokes caused by a bleeding mass on his brain and spent three weeks on life support. By the time he awoke this past summer, his 5-foot-7 frame had withered from 160 pounds to 112. He was paralyzed on his right side, unable to walk or talk.
His football season was the last thing on his mind.
Once regaining the ability to jog, Hearn found himself back in pads when his coach asked him to suit up for the Cyclones' final home game. He figured he was on the sideline for moral support, but unbeknownst to him, both coaches had arranged for a special moment to highlight his road to recovery..........
Now these are two Coaches with a capital C...bravo for them and both the teams!
