MENTOR, Ohio (AP) - A freshman football player in northeast Ohio was flown to a hospital with a head injury suffered during a game, but a coach says he has full feeling in his arms and legs.

The Northeast Ohio Media Group (https://bit.ly/1D0nHut ) reports the Mentor (MEN’-tur) High School player was injured Thursday in a freshman game at the school. The player, whose name wasn’t disclosed, was picked up by a helicopter and taken to a Cleveland hospital.

The school’s football coach, Steve Trivisonno, says he spoke to the player’s parents on Thursday night and received a positive report. Trivisonno says, “Everything is looking pretty good.”

Medical officials decided to airlift the player from the field rather than transport him by ambulance to a nearby facility where he could then be transferred via helicopter.
