Hilliard Bradley High School junior quarterback Tommy Horn was released from Riverside Methodist Hospital on Oct. 29, three days after he suffered a spinal-cord bruise during a game, according to football coach Mike LoParo.
“Tommy was released (Oct. 29) and they kept him that long just to make sure he had his strength back in his arms and hands,” LoParo said. “They expect him to have a full recovery, which is something we all wanted to hear.”
In the third quarter of the Jaguars’ 42-0 loss to visiting Hilliard Darby on Oct. 26, the 6-foot, 175-pound Horn was injured when he was tackled following a 7-yard run for a first down at the Bradley 32-yard line. After a 20-minute delay, he was carted off the field and taken to the hospital.
