YORK COUNTY, Pa. — One week after collapsing on the sidelines of a Kennard-Dale Rams football game, Patrick Maloney is communicating with his thumbs to answer questions, up and down, and is working with various therapists.
The update was passed along by Kennard-Dale Rams Football on Facebook via Maloney’s mother.
Maloney, 17, sustained a serious head injury during the team’s football game Friday.
He was removed from the ventilator Tuesday and was awake, talking and following commands. The community held a prayer service for him that morning at the high school.
