Over the weekend I got word that a Woodlands High School football player had been seriously injured Saturday evening while at the playoff game in Waco.
Grant Milton is the young man’s name. Paramedics at McLane Stadium treated Grant before he was taken to the local hospital.
Details of the his injury haven’t officially been released yet but Bowie junior DB Pierce Withers tweeted that Milton had a seizure on the sideline and was having brain surgery Saturday night.
They set up a Caring Bridge web page so everyone can get updates as they are available… as of now all we know is Milton underwent emergency surgery and is still hospitalized. The web page’s most recent update says
“The outpouring of prayer and support for Grant and the Milton family at the prayer vigil was incredible! Mr. Colschen gave an update from Grant’s father that although Grant is still in very serious and critical condition, his prognosis is much better than it was last night. He responded to light by blinking, responded to his father’s voice and his pupil reaction has improved significantly. Praise God for His love and compassion in answering prayers already! It was beautiful to see the unity of hundreds of people including the football team, students, and community lifting Grant up in prayer for complete recovery. Grant has both parents, Patty and Miles, with him along with his brothers, Connor and Pierce. Other extended family and friends are there supporting the family along with the wonderful nurses and doctors at the hospital. Please continue to pray for Grant and his family for peace, comfort, and strength during this difficult time.”
We are praying for Grant and his family… well wishes and if we can help, let us know!
