Navy freshman running back Will McKamey is in a coma after collapsing during spring practice Saturday in Annapolis, Md.
According to The Baltimore Sun, the 19-year-old slotback was airlifted off the practice field after taking a hit and underwent surgery for a brain clot at Maryland Shock Trauma Center.
Both of McKamey's parents took to social media to update Will's status Saturday night. His mother, Kara, posted on Facebook:
"Friends and family, it is difficult to even send updates at this point as my body and mind just feel numb. I will try my best to keep everyone posted because I know you all love us and your prayers are so needed and appreciated. As of now Will is showing very little response. He is in a coma currently. In the past several hours since surgery we are seeing some very small improvements and reactions to light etc."
The Naval Academy released a statement Saturday: "The entire Naval Academy family is shaken by the turn of events and we are providing all the support we can to Will and his family."
McKamey also collapsed on the field during a 2012 game when he was in high school in Tennessee and airlifted to a hospital. He did not have surgery but the episode ended his senior season.
