Friends Gather for Hurt Goshen Football Player

GOSHEN (FOX19) - Family, friends, fellow students and teammates gathered Friday night around Goshen High School's flag pole to pray for 17 year-old senior football player Eric Coleman.

Coleman's father says his son took a hard hit during Monday's practice that may have caused bruising of the brain, but he never mentioned it.

Coleman was taken to the Intensive Care Unit at Children's Hospital.

Coleman is walking and talking, he is expected to make a full recovery.

Family members say he will never play football again but baseball is not out of the question.
