A 14-year-old student at Mill Creek Middle School in Dexter is at home and resting comfortably, his parents said, after suffering a minor concussion at a football game on Tuesday.
Nate Robards was airlifted to the University of Michigan hospital Tuesday afternoon, after being struck by a player during a football game against Chelsea.
"It was reported to me that the player was treated and released. We are so thankful for this news. I appreciate the quick response by the Athletic Department and the Mill Creek administrators in following up with the student and his family," superintendent Mary Marshall said in an email.
Principal Jami Bronson credits the quick response from emergency personnel.
"We would like to thank all of the emergency responders for quick action in helping our student," she said.
