BATON ROUGE, La. — A Louisiana high school football player had to be airlifted after being seriously injured in a game Thursday night.
According to WBRZ-TV in Baton Rouge, Riverside Academy's Kayon Brumfield had to be flown from Mumford Stadium during the school's game against Southern Lab.
School officials told WBRZ that Brumfield was injured during the game and suffered a "concussion-like" head injury, but was expected to be okay.
Riverside Principal Mike Coburn said that Brumfield had more tests to undergo, including an MRI, and that he does have feeling in his limbs.
Video from the stadium showed players, coaches and cheerleaders from both teams kneeling in the middle of the field with their heads bowed in prayer.
