Brain Injured HS Football Player Recovering After Surgery

(Courier Journal) – Three days after suffering a head injury that required brain surgery, North Bullitt High School senior football player Zach Vorbrink was showing positive signs of recovery Monday. 

“This morning he was alert enough to know his name and how old he was,” Eagles coach Adam Billings said. “That’s huge.” In a text message, Vorbrink’s mother, Angie, said her son “is doing really good.”

Zach Vorbrink was injured during the first quarter of the Eagles’ 28-0 victory over South Oldham. Billings said Vorbrink made a tackle and jogged off the field. CONTINUE
