SHARE Lane football player suffers seizure

A Lane football player suffered a seizure on the sideline of the Indians’ game Friday evening at Gately Stadium. The game was stopped as trainers examined him, before he was carted off by paramedics and rushed to the emergency room.

Drew Williams, a senior defensive back and wide receiver, collapsed following an extra point by Dunbar just five seconds into the fourth quarter. He lay motionless for nearly 20 minutes as he was attended to and eventually taken off the field.

Lane head coach Fred Prosel would not comment on Williams’ condition after the game until finding out more. An assistant for the Indians said Williams was conscious on the sideline following the Dunbar touchdown seconds earlier, but then fell down without warning.

Williams was taken by ambulance to Roseland Hospital.
