A high school football player has been in a coma since his heart stopped while his father was driving him to a hospital after Thursday night's game.
Rhett Wallace, a junior who started at running back for Huntington High, remained in critical condition Sunday. An electrocardiogram showed that he has Wolff-Parkinson-Smith syndrome, which can cause spasms of rapid heartbeats leading to a heart attack. It is congenital, but can go undetected until late in life.
Rhett pulled himself out of the game early in the third quarter, saying he was "not feeling right," Huntington coach John Piazza said.
