Mankato, MN (AP) - The family of critically injured former Minnesota State, Mankato football player Isaac Kolstad is urging blood donations in his honor.
Kolstad's family and friends organized the blood drive in Mankato for Tuesday.
Kolstad's family appealed for blood donations on his CaringBridge website, saying it's an opportunity for the community to show its support for Kolstad and to help others in need of blood transfusions.
Kolstad was hurt May 11 in a confrontation in downtown Mankato that included former Minnesota Gophers quarterback Philip Nelson. Kolstad remained in critical condition Monday evening.
The American Red Cross will hold the blood drive at the National Guard Training and Community Center in Mankato, from 12:30-5:30 p.m.
