Player injured in SWAC game sent to hospital

A 12 year old playing in a Greater Union South King County football game between Beacon Hill and the SWAC team at the SouthWest Athletic Complex on Saturday Sept. 28 was injured and sent to the hospital.

His mother spoke to the Herald and said, "He kind of just wobbled off the field and someone was trying to stretch his leg out and they couldn't. The people in the ambulance think that he dislocated his hip. But I had to be the one to call the ambulance."

According to his mother the boy is expected to be ok but she was unhappy that the coaches did not make the call for assistance.
