COLUMBIA CITY â€” Columbia City senior football captain Sam Dailey remained in critical condition throughout the weekend after a head injury Friday night.
Dailey was hurt while trying to make a tackle against Warsaw in the season-opening football game.
â€śHe made an outstanding play on a run off-tackle,â€ť Columbia City Randy Hudgins told an area newspaper. â€śWe watched it on film and it didnâ€™t look like anything out of the ordinary, but it must have hit him just the right way.â€ť
After speaking with area news sources, Hudgins was gag-ordered by Whitley County Consolidated School officials to not provide further comment.
Superintendent Pat Oâ€™Connor said WCCS does not wish to comment on the injury.
