CHARLESTON, W.VA. - Spring Valley junior linebacker Chase Lucas was conscious when he was removed from the playing field at George Washington High School on Friday night, but is not expected to play again this season, Timberwolves Coach Brad Dingess said.
Lucas was knocked out by a block thrown by George Washington's Trevon Johnson during the third quarter of the Patriots' 42-7 win. He remained motionless for several minutes before being immobilized and taken to an area hospital.
"He was responsive and talking. He had feeling in everything," Dingess said. "He just got knocked out, and when he came back to he didn't know where he was at."
Dingess said that was Lucas's second concussion this season.
"It was his second bad one, so he's probably done," he said.
George Washington senior Ryan Switzer patted Lucas on the shoulder pads as he was being taken off the field.
"I didn't see the hit. I was running, but we're going to be keeping him in our prayers," Switzer said. "You hate to see something like that happen in a violent game, but we're going to keep him in our prayers."
