Communities across South Dakota are coming together to support a high school football player hurt in a game last week.
Britton Hecla quarterback and team captain Trevor Zuehlke suffered a serious head injury on Friday, October 18.
He was brought to Sioux Falls for treatment. His family issued a statement through the hospital earlier this week:
The patient is currently at Avera McKennan and listed in Critical condition. At this time, the family requests privacy. They would also like to express sincere appreciation for the continued prayers and outpouring of support.
Schools across the area are now working to collect money for the Zuehlke family.
