BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) - Indiana University wide receiver Isaac Griffith is hospitalized in Florida following a swimming accident.
The Sarasota County Sheriff's Department says Griffith was drinking with two fellow IU football players and a friend before they went swimming Monday. Police say the current carried them out from shore and Griffith went under. The friend rescued him but he remained unconscious and was taken to the hospital.
Sarasota Memorial Hospital spokeswoman Kim Savage says the family has requested privacy. A police report says Griffith's CT scans were normal and spokeswoman Wendy Rose says Griffith's ''signs are positive.''
The 19-year-old played at Homestead High School near Fort Wayne. His father Shannon is football coach at Manchester University in northeastern Indiana.
The Indiana athletic department released a statement asking for prayers for Griffith.
