17-Year-Old Student Suffers Heart Attack After Cross Country Race – Found 2 Bloodclots – Doctors Baffled on Exactly What Happened

Hits: 34

High school officials in Tennessee said that a student and cross country runner suffered a heart attack following a race in Florida on Saturday, September 10.

Gabe Higginbottom, 17, a junior at Bartlett High School in Tennessee, participated in a cross-country race in Pensacola, Florida.

According to a Facebook post, Gabe didn’t bounce back following the race.

“Yesterday after the Pensacola race he didn’t bounce back,” according to a post published in the Bartlett High School Boys Cross Country Facebook group.

“After an hour he was taken by some of the dad’s and coach to the medical tent. His vitals were good. Out of an abundance of caution, the doctor on site said he should go to the hospital. At the hospital, his vitals were good until they weren’t. He was then airlifted with his mom to Gainesville Florida for further tests. Today he had surgery and it went well. Please pray for this family and our team,” the post concluded.

The Bartlett City Schools also released a statement regarding the incident. According to the school, doctors found two blood clots after they performed a 3-hour surgery.

“On September 10th, after a race in Pensacola, FL, one of Bartlett High School’s Cross-Country runners suffered a heart attack. Gabe Higginbottom, 17, a junior at Bartlett High School was sent to Ascension Sacred Heart Pensacola Hospital at the advice of the on-staff medical team. Sacred Heart performed a CAT scan which revealed further action needed to be taken.”

“Gabe was transported to the UF Shands Heart and Vascular Hospital in Gainesville, FL by helicopter that night. In Gainesville, they found his right artery was completely blocked. The doctors performed an angioplasty to insert a balloon to open up that artery. Later, they performed a 3-hour surgery inserting two stents and found two blood clots.”

“Cross Country coach, Kris Harman, and Gabe’s mother, Edrika, remain by Gabe’s side, as he is currently recovering at the UF Shands in Gainesville, FL. A Go Fund Me page has been set up by the Cross Country Booster Club. The money raised will be used to offset any medical bills. No amount is too small. Please pray for Gabe and his family as he begins the rehab process,” the post concluded.

Kris Harman, a team coach, told WREG something just wasn’t right with Gabe after competing.

“He started complaining about his chest hurting and kept complaining and we went to the trainer’s tent…everybody initially thinks it’s hot, it’s heat exhaustion so give him ice but he’s still complaining about his chest,” Harman told the outlet.

Harman told WREG that doctors found Gabe had a blocked artery and performed a procedure to fix it. “Now, they’re just trying to figure out what caused it,” Harman told the outlet.

Phil Clark, the athletic coordinator at Bartlett City Schools, told the Memphis Commercial Appeal that doctors said the heart attack wasn’t heat related and that they don’t know what caused it. “The doctor at the hospital he’s at, he told our track coach he had seen one (other) instance like this in his 11 years down there,” Clark said, the outlet reported.

He said Gabe is working toward recovery.

“They’re going to get him up and get him walking down the hallway this morning and they think everything is going to be fine,” Clark said Tuesday, Sept. 13, according to the Commercial Appeal. “He’s a strong, healthy young man, which surely helped in this situation.”

Gov. DeSantis: Special Olympics Reversal of Vaccine Requirement a Win

Hits: 15

During a Friday press conference, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis called a win the decision by the Special Olympics to reverse the mandate that otherwise would have required thousands of athletes competing in the games to get vaccinated against COVID-19.

On Friday, the Special Olympics issued a statement detailing that it would lift its mandate as directed by state officials on May 27 “based upon the Florida Department of Health’s interpretation of Florida law.”

According to Politico, this year’s Special Olympics USA Games will kick off Sunday and wrap up on June 12. Initially, the Florida Department of Health sent a letter to Special Olympics International threatening a $27.5 million fine on Thursday if the organization sought a vaccine requirement. A copy of the letter indicated that the Special Olympics had asked 5,500 people to provide proof of vaccination upon entry to the 2022 USA Special Olympics Games, which violates a state ban requiring proof of vaccination.

“[Special Olympics International] was unable to bring the event into compliance for the benefit of their delegates,” the letter read. “And reinstate all who were denied access based on proof of vaccination.”

DeSantis called the decision to reverse the requirement a win for thousands of athletes.

“What connection that has to competing,” DeSantis said of COVID-19 vaccines, “I don’t understand. We’ve never seen something wielded like this vaccine to try to marginalize disfavored people.

“And a lot of these Special Olympians have also had COVID by now. Most people have had it by now.”


Florida called the Special Olympics International committee for their “prove you’ve been jabbed or go home” policy. The committee blinked.

Special Olympics, Inc. (SOI) announced on June 2, 2022, that it is lifting the vaccine requirement for delegation members attending the 2022 Special Olympics USA Games being held in Orlando, Florida, June 5-12, as required by state of Florida officialson May 27, based upon the Florida Department of Health’s interpretation of Florida law.

Delegates who were registered for the Games but were unable to participate due to the prior vaccine requirement, now have the option to attend. SOI, Special Olympics North America, and the 2022 Special Olympics USA Games Local Organizing Committee are making best efforts to accommodate eligible individuals.

We look forward to welcoming thousands of Special Olympics athletes, families, and fans to an extraordinary 2022 USA Games.

Blaney avoids last-lap wreck to win regular season finale at Daytona.

Hits: 14

I don’t normally follow NASCAR but Ryan Blaney is a local boy who has done good and the family listened to President Trump and didn’t sell their house.

Blaney avoids last-lap wreck to win regular season finale at Daytona.

Blaney, the winner in Michigan last week, heads into next week’s playoff opener at Darlington Raceway with three victories this season in his Team Penske Ford.

“Yeah, we’ve got good momentum,” Blaney said. “We’d like to make it three in a row, we’ll see.”

On Saturday night, the rising NASCAR star avoided two late multi-car wrecks during the Coke Zero Sugar 400 to capture the final race of the regular season — and the 27-year-old’s second consecutive Cup Series victory.

I’m sorry but they will always be the Cleveland Indians

Hits: 25

I’m sorry but they will always be the Cleveland Indians. First let me say that even though the city of Cleveland is 65 miles from my home, I’ve always been a NY Yankees fan. But today I shed a tear for dear old Chief Wahoo.

The Cleveland Indians officially announced their new name on Friday.

The decision to change the name came last year amid racial tension in the U.S. as professional sports teams came under fire for having Native American monikers.

The choice of Guardians will undoubtedly be criticized by many of the club’s die-hard fans.

The organization spent most of the past year whittling down a list of potential names that was at nearly 1,200 just over a month ago. But the process quickly accelerated.

The baseball team will be known as the Guardians.

To Progressives they all look alike. Just ask Pelosi. All Willies look alike to her.

To Progressives they all look alike. Just ask Pelosi. All Willies look alike to her. Progressives are famous for two sayings. Some of my best friends are_____________________________ fill in the space. And all those folks look alike. So that’s why Nancy got Willie Mays and Willie McCovey mixed up. I’m sure this was a mistake.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi tried to honor baseball legend Willie Mays for his 90th birthday Thursday but fouled out when the 81-year-old pol instead tweeted out a smiling photo of herself — with Willie McCovey.

A minority gets screwed over again. TJ Watt passed over because of black privilege?

Hits: 7

 


A minority gets screwed over again. TJ Watt passed over as Defensive Player of the Year. Because of black privilege? Aaron Donald is a awesome player and odds are he’ll end up in the Hall of Fame. But TJ Watt had a hall of fame year and plain and simple fact is that he got screwed. Not a good time to be white.

Both players were deserving of the award. An All-Pro for a sixth straight year in 2020, Donald tallied 13.5 sacks, four forced fumbles, and 14 tackles for loss. Watt led the NFL with 15 sacks in 2020. He also led the NFL with 23 tackles for loss. One of the most versatile outside linebackers in football, Watt also recorded an interception while breaking up seven passes.

Whites and Latinos are minorities in the NFL. But they get no special privilege.
