A Beaumont Legacy football player was airlifted by medical helicopter following an injury during a Friday night game in Burkeville.

Fortunately, Duckworth said the injured player had regained some sensation and slight mobility before being airlifted to hospital. Duckworth said it was hoped the student-athlete only suffered a pinched nerve, rather than a catastrophic injury.
Beaumont Legacy won the game 27-26 against Burkeville.
