Who Is Dylan Thomas? Pike County HS Football Player Dies After Injury


Dylan Thomas, a football player from Pike County High School in Georgia, has passed away following a severe brain injury suffered during a game on Friday, Sept. 28. Thomas was flown to the hospital in critical condition after he collapsed on the sidelines following a hit in the second quarter, according to ABC-13.
From the report:

The mayor of Williamson, Steve Fry, tells¬†WAGA-TV¬†Thomas underwent surgery to relieve brain swelling and went into a coma. A vigil was held Sunday afternoon at the school for Thomas. Thomas’ uncle and school say the teen died that night.
A fundraiser for medical costs and lost income started by Burgess had raised about $24,600 by Monday morning.

Thomas passed away on the same weekend that Christion Abercrombie, a linebacker for the Tennessee State football program, became verbally unresponsive during a hit.
Abercrombie, a member of the Tennessee State football team, is in critical condition after a hit during a game on Saturday, Sept. 29. Abercrombie collapsed on the sideline after complaining to trainers about a headache. He then underwent emergency surgery at the Vanderbilt University Medical Center.
Our deepest condolences are with Thomas’ family and friends during this difficult time.
