Who is Mason Martin rushed to the hospital after on-field collapse?

This season the NFL started with a projected great injury of Isaiah Bolden who after colliding on the field was carted off the field and later diagnosed with concussion. Fortunately, the NFL player is now out of risk, yet the football world is again shackled by a young football player Mason Martin’s injury.

Martin suffered a terrifying moment earlier this weekend, as a player in the game between Karns City High School Gremlins and Redbank Valley Bulldogs. His injury was so severe that it forced the authorities to call off the match.

The 17-year-old is the quarterback of a Pennsylvania high school who with his excellent prowess already garnered the attention of local fans. However, after suffering a serious injury in his most recent game, Mason Martin received national attention that no athlete ever wants in their career. In the third quarter of one of the games, Mason went down on the field after absorbing a hit.

Referee Mike Vasbinder questioned the young star if he was fine after noticing him stumbling, but he gave a negative response.

“I had to talk to him, and when I asked if he was alright, he told me, ‘no’. So that’s when I knew something was wrong.”

Later, the referee halted play and declared Redbank Valley the winner with a 35-6 advantage.

Mason Martin was transported to the hospital after collapsing on the pitch

Mason’s condition was critical, therefore he was taken to the hospital by helicopter, the Karns City Area School District superintendent confirmed. But as his condition was not improving, he was later driven to UMPC Presbyterian Hospital in Pittsburgh.

Mason Martin was discovered to have “a significant brain bleed as well as a collapsed lung,” his family told the media. Martin’s mother Stacy King pleaded with all of his followers to pray for her son, saying that his health requires a miracle to restore him to health.

“Mason remains in critical condition with little change over the last 36 hours. The truth is we need a miracle. I’m not saying that to sound grim, but to let you know that we need the strength of your prayers.”

Martin’s accident is not the only health worry his family has experienced; his mother is presently facing stage 4 breast cancer. Nevertheless, hearing about the young player’s tragic accident, Eric Ritzert, the district superintendent, also pleaded with everyone to pray for his speedy recovery.

We hope to hear miraculous news from the player’s side and wish to see him fully fit like Bolden.
