Towson JV player suffers concussion

November 07, 1999|By FROM STAFF REPORTS

A Towson High sophomore linebacker suffered head and neck injuries yesterday during a junior varsity football game at the school's stadium.

Will Leavy briefly lost consciousness after being tackled. He was transported by Maryland State Police helicopter to the Maryland Shock Trauma Center as a precautionary measure, a Baltimore County fire official said. Leavy was listed in serious but stable condition last night with a concussion and possible neck injury.

Last week, a Towson High varsity player was treated for a similar injury, said coach Edward Pfaff, noting there has been as many four county football players injured in such a way this year.
