BRENHAM (AP) - A Central Texas high school football player is hospitalized in intensive care after suffering a stroke.

Senior Brenham defensive back and receiver Justin Davis is recovering from surgeries to ease pressure from brain swelling. Brenham athletic director and football coach Glen West said Davis is in critical condition at St. Joseph Hospital in Bryan.

West said Davis had reported feeling ill about a half-hour after practice Wednesday. After basic tests for a concussion proved negative, Davis said he felt better and went into a team meeting.

His condition quickly worsened, however, and he was taken to a Brenham hospital before going to Bryan 35 miles away. West said the diagnosis was a stroke caused by a blood clot in his carotid artery, a rarity in a young person.
