The Siegel High School football player who was injured Friday night in McMinnville is in critical condition after undergoing emergency brain surgery.
According to the Daily News Journal in Murfreesboro, Baylor Bramble had surgery around 1 a.m. Saturday after being airlifted to Vanderbilt Medical Center.
Bramble, a 5-foot-8 junior cornerback, was making his first start of the year, according to Siegel football coach Greg Wyant.
“He came off the field in the fourth quarter and told me his head hurt,” Wyant told the Daily News Journal. “It went downhill from there.”
Wyant said Bramble was sent to the trainer to be examined. He was placed in an ambulance after the game and sent to Warren County Memorial Airport where he was flown to Nashville, Wyant said.
There was a prayer vigil yesterday at the Siegel High School cafeteria and also at Warren County High School's Charlie Dalton Gym.
