(WHAS11)-- In the wake of continuous discussion about the aftermath of football related head injuries, a local high school boy has become too familiar with the dangers of the gridiron.
Waggener High School football team captain, Jacob Quaife, is reported to be recovering from brain surgery that stemmed from two hits he suffered during a game.
He was taken to the hospital after he was seen wobbling on the field. Doctors discovered bleeding in his brain and rushed Quaife into surgery.
He is expected to be released from the hospital in a few days and he said he is ready to get back on the football field.
