GREER, SC (FOX Carolina) –

A Blue Ridge high school football player was injured Friday night during the last regular football game of the season against Greer.

A FOX Carolina crew at the scene said the player was transported in an ambulance after suffering a hit on the field. The team kneeled around him when the injury occurred.

According to Yellow Jackets Sports Network, the player is a quarterback and he suffered a neck or back injury.

A spokesperson for Greenville County Schools said the student was placed on a backboard after a hard hit and transported to the hospital as a precaution. All of the district’s high schools have athletic trainers provided by Greenville Health System and the trainers were the first responders to provide immediate care.

The student’s condition is unknown.
