Tenn. football player Baylor Bramble continues amazing recovery, now breathing on his own

By

The recovery of Tennessee high school football player Baylor Bramble continues with his father announcing that Baylor completed 24 hours off the ventilator this week.

Bramble sustained a head trauma during Siegel’s 44-14 win over Warren County on Oct. 23. The Siegel High junior, who was making his first career start at cornerback, left the game late in the fourth quarter complaining of a severe headache. He was eventually airlifted to Vanderbilt University Medical Center and underwent surgery.

David Bramble also addressed how dire the situation was not that long ago: “Post immediate surgery and follow-up brain scans, the doctors gave little to no hope of any recovery. On his 17th birthday, November 6th, we were even told that he could possibly only have hours to live. After much prayer, we decided that neither Baylor nor God had given up on Baylor and, therefore, we would not either.”

According to regular updates from his father, Baylor has had some movement in his fingers and toes, though not on command since the injury.
