Troup High School football player ‘continues to heal’ from head injury during game
TROUP, Texas (KLTV) - Troup ISD Tigers football player #22, Cooper Reid, “continues to heal” after an injury at a football game Friday night.
Cooper suffered a serious head injury during the homecoming game against Buffalo.
UPDATE: On Tuesday, an MRI showed that Cooper suffered a stroke, which is a setback for his recovery according to a post in the Facebook group dedicated to prayers and updates. The post indicates doctors will begin to decrease sedation soon and start neurological testing, asking the community to “pray for calmness for Cooper has he comes out of such a deep sleep.”
Previously, school officials said recent CAT scans showed no change, which Cooper’s family said was positive news. They are praying for decreased pressure on his brain.
The Troup ISD staff and student body wore blue in support of Cooper on Monday.
The team, family and friends are grateful for support. They believe in the healing power of prayer, and they say they know God will heal Cooper Reid.
A Facebook page was created for prayers and updates.
