UF LB Ball To Move Out Of ICU

Good news from Gainesville today as sophomore linebacker Neiron Ball is being moved out of the intensive care unit of a local hospital (according to his high school coach).  Ball was hospitalized following a burst blood vessel in his brain earlier this week.  He is being treated for a congenital vascular condition.

“He’s doing okay,” Coach Mike Parris of Jackson, Georgia told The Gainesville Sun.  “He’s having headaches.  He’s scared more than anything.  Other than that, he’s doing pretty good.  I think he’s going to be fine.  The doctors told his family he is out of a life-threatening situation.”

Parris said doctors have not talked to Ball or his family about football yet.  “Nobody knows anything about football at this point.  Everyone just wants to get him back healthy.  That’s what we’re looking at right now.”
