This is how the first game of the season started today:

And this.. how the game ended.
Not how we had hoped. At all. *sigh*

That's one of our players, Jacob, being loaded onto Air Care, after a tackle around his neck. His head snapped back, helmet into his neck, leaving a lump over his vertebrae. We think he'll be ok- the coaches said he was talking and wiggling his feet and hands, but DAMN....

We're all praying for you and your family, Jacob.

I just got a call confirming Jacob's injuries: He has a concussion and a hairline fracture of a vertebrae. He is not being held at the hospital though, so he must be doing ok. This is good news, all things considered!
