BRITTON, S.D. (KELO) — Britton-Hecla senior Trevor Zuehlke was given the opportunity to get back on the football field Friday night.
Zuehlke suffered a serious brain injury in a football game a year ago. Friday night, Trevor got the chance to get on the field and play linebacker against Warner.
The opposing Monarchs bench took a knee during the play. When the whistle blew, signaling the play clock was up, both teams and fans rose to their feet, while the Britton-Hecla team surrounded their teammate.
Another video shows the play from the other side of the field, but also includes the public address announcers message about Zuehlke’s impressive accomplishments.
