Annapolis, MD, United States (4E Sports) – Navy running back Will McKamey is now in a coma at a Baltimore hospital after he underwent emergency surgery to remove a blood clot from his brain.
The freshman, who collapsed Saturday during spring practice, is at the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Unit where his family is waiting for signs of improvement.
McKamey’s family is regularly posting updates and has requested prayers on social media.
The running back’s mother, Kara Grubb McKamey, wrote Saturday on Facebook that “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. We are hanging on to every small thing,” she added.
His father, who was his coach at Grace Christian Academy in Tennessee, referred to a past concussion that required hospitalization in a tweet Sunday.
McKamey is a member of the Third Company at Navy.
