    May he RIP and may the Lord be with the family and the other players, especially the one who threw the ball.

    Last fall a local teenager went down on a rough pass and received a closed-head injury. He spent months in the hospital and is still in rehab.

    This is just heartbreaking and scary as my 7 and 12 year old sons are sports fanatics. Every free moment they have4 is spent tossing or kicking a ball around.They both play soccer every fall and it is not supposed to be a contact sport but those kids are tough . My youngest started at 4 and my oldest at 6 . This is the only sport here where boys and girls are on the same team 4 years old to 15 years old .They have been on football and basketball teams and currently play baseball. Sometimes it is nerve wracking as a mom to watch games and even practices. I pray every time before they go on that field. My prayers are with this boys family!
