A redshirt freshman frighteningly collapsed on the football field and went into cardiac arrest during spring practice.
Josh Davis was in critical condition and now is in recovery. The Utah State football player is recovering in the hospital after suffering “non-traumatic sudden cardiac arrest.” He was taken to Logan Regional Hospital before later being transported to McKay-Dee Hospital.
Davis was upgraded to fair condition the following morning. According to the school, he was “taken off life-sustaining medical devices and is breathing on his own.”
“Davis received initial critical treatment and was stabilized at Logan Regional Hospital before being transported to McKay-Dee Hospital, where their critical care team continued treatment with therapeutic hypothermia to lower the body temperature to preserve his neurological function,” the school said in a press release.
Head coach Blake Anderson visited Davis in the hospital and posted an update on Twitter.
“The smiles say it all… it was a brutal night, but Josh never stopped fighting,” Anderson wrote.
“Through God’s grace, and an amazing group of Trainers & Medical Professionals we are doing better every minute today. So grateful for all the prayers & support lifted up over the past 24 hrs.”WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
