College Football Star Suffers Heart Attack At Practice
A college football star suffered a heart attack at practice this week.
Running back Darran Williams reportedly went down with the hear attack during a UNLV practice session on Tuesday morning.
He was immediately rushed to the hospital for treatment.
According to Mark Anderson of the Las Vegas Review-Journal, Williams is now said to be in stable condition.
Williams is said to have been going through the warmups portion of the practice when the incident occurred.
“A UNLV football student-athlete had a medical episode during the warm-up of a team workout Tuesday morning,” UNLV said in a statement.
“He is being treated by doctors at a local hospital with his family at his side. The thoughts and prayers of the entire UNLV community are with him and his family.”
Williams, a senior, is fresh off a solid junior campaign that saw him rush for 79 yards and one touchdown.
Originally from Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, Williams started his collegiate career off at Northeastern Oklahoma A&M where he amassed 1,427 yards and 15 scores in 2018.
An update on Williams’ condition is expected at some point in the next few days.
