BRITTON, S.D.–Britton-Hecla quarterback Trevor Zuehlke suffered a head injury during a football game in Warner on Friday.

 

He was taken by ambulance to Aberdeen where he was evaluated. A CT scan showed bleeding in his brain, and he was airlifted to Avera Mckennan Hospital in Sioux Falls where he remains in a medically-induced coma.
