JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- It's a game where players are knocked down. But things changed quickly when a running back from First Coast High School had trouble bouncing back.
"Just had a First Coast player taken off the field because he collapsed late into the warm-up after half-time," said the football game announcer.
Senior Cameron Price was carted of the field Thursday Night. Head Coach Marty Lee said his player had chest pains and couldn't move.
"The players themselves have some anxiety and fear of what's going on with their fellow teammate. The coaches may be feeling the same anxiety," said Robert Sefcik.
Sefcik is the Executive Director of Jacksonville Sports Medicine Program, and says this type of situation is when a team's emergency action plan goes into effect.
"We had three license athletic trainers, two volunteer team physicians, and Jacksonville Fire Rescue crews, " said Sefcik.
Price was transported to UF and Shands Hospital and has since been released. "The most important thing is that the kids are reporting any symptoms of illness or injury," he said.
And tonight his family, friends and teammates are grateful that he was able to get back up again like he had so many times on the field.
Head Coach Marty Lee tells Action News that Price won't be back on the field until his doctor gives him a clean bill of health.
