His team beat Owasso in double overtime but after the game, Keviyon didn’t feel like celebrating. His mom was told her son was probably overheating.
“I do a quick evaluation and everything seems fine,” said Dan Newman, Union HS Trainer. “He’s alert, eyes nice and equal and reactive to light. He’s just complaining of a severe headache.”
But it was more than just a headache.
“I got a trash can and was throwing up, then I tried to get up to go to the bathroom and then I just passed out,” Keviyon said.
“Open up the right eye and I shine it down and his pupil’s blown,” said Newman.
“I come down and I see my son on the floor and he’s incoherent, he’s wailing his hands,” said Shirley. “Don’t know what’s going on and I’m like ‘this is not overheating. What’s wrong with him?'”
Keviyon was rushed to the hospital with massive bleeding in his brain.
Three days in a coma and 27 days in the hospital, a concussion suffered during the game nearly took his life.
