Reports out of Duncan, South Carolina, indicate that Zack Darlington did indeed suffer a concussion after a hard hit midway through the fourth quarter of an ESPN-televised game against Byrnes High. The Orlando Sentinel talked to Apopka High School athletic director Fred Priest, who said:
"The diagnosis is that he has a concussion and has to be under observation for 24 hours. His parents are staying here with him while the team returns home.''
"I talked to my mom just before they got into the helicopter. She said he moved and that he had talked.''
This would be the second concussion for Darlington this summer.
Darlington had suffered a concussion during a summer condition excerise, making it two concussions within the last three months. #flhsfb— Florida HS Football (@FlaHSFootball) August 24, 2013
