BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) - Indiana wide receiver Isaac Griffith was hospitalized in Florida on Tuesday following a swimming accident.
The Sarasota County Sheriff's Department said Griffith was drinking in a hotel room with fellow players Nick Stoner and Ty Smith and a friend, Mitch McCune, when the four decided to go swimming at Siesta Beach.
The current swept all four away from shore, authorities said. When the 19-year-old Griffith went under, he was rescued and returned to shore unconscious by McCune, who performed CPR until sheriff's officers and emergency units arrived.
Police said Griffith was taken to Sarasota Memorial Hospital, where spokeswoman Kim Savage said the family had requested privacy.
The sheriff's report said Griffith's CT scans were normal and spokeswoman Wendy Rose said Tuesday that his ''signs are positive.''
Stoner, 21, is a wide receiver from the Indianapolis suburb of Greenwood. Smith, a 19-year-old safety, is a redshirt freshman from Bloomington.
A statement released by Indiana asked fans to keep Griffith in their thoughts. Griffith played at Homestead High School near Fort Wayne. His father, Shannon Griffith, is football coach at Manchester University in northeastern Indiana.
The Associated Press left messages with the Manchester athletic department attempting to reach Griffith's family for comment.
