RSHS Football Player Life Flighted After Scrimmage Injury

ROCK SPRINGS — Jaciel Granados, a student at Rock Springs High School, was life flighted to Salt Lake City on August 17 after sustaining a serious head injury during a football scrimmage.

Doctors performed emergency surgery to relieve pressure from bleeding around Jaciel’s brain. He was in a medically induced coma, but it’s reported he is now responsive and his recovery is exceeding doctor’s expectations for the type of injury he suffered.

Several fundraising efforts have been established to help support Jaciel’s recovery and medical expenses.
