Navy sophomore slotback Will McKamey collapsed during spring football practice on Saturday and was airlifted to the hospital, according to his mother on Facebook.

Facebook friends and family, Will has collapsed on the field during a Navy spring football practice, very similar to last time. They are air-lifting him to Baltimore Trauma Center currently. Please, please pray for him and our family. He is currently stable but unconscious. We are leaving now to get to him!

As McKamey's mother noted, this isn’t the first time McKamey has collapsed on the field.

In 2012, while playing for Grace Christian High School in Tennessee, McKamey suffered a brain injury after collapsing during a two-point conversion in the fourth quarter of a game. He was airlifted from the field and was in the intensive care unit while doctors monitored brain bleeding and swelling. He did not have surgery.

The injury ended his senior season, but he still signed with Navy.

McKamey was named Mr. Football in the state of Tennessee in 2012. He did not record a stat with the Midshipmen last season.
