La Puente High School quarterback Ivan Vasquez was released from a local hospital early Saturday morning and is back at home, Warriors head coach Brandon Rohrer said via text message.
Vasquez suffered a neck injury after being tackled in the fourth quarter of Friday’s 37-7 loss to Gladstone. He lay motionless on the field after the injury and was treated on the scene by paramedics before being transported by ambulance to the hospital.
Vasquez is moving his arms and legs, but his neck is still “really sore”, according to Rohrer.
Coaches from both teams agreed to end the game with 9:56 still on the clock.
