LAWRENCE COUNTY, Tenn. (WKRN) – A Loretto High School football player was evacuated by air from the field following a head injury Friday night.

According to police, it happened at around 7:20 p.m. at the school in Lawrence County during a football game against Waverly High School.

Devan Sharp was eventually taken to Vanderbilt University Medical Center but is now home.

Sharp’s sister told News 2 he got enough feeling in his legs Saturday morning to get up and walk around, but will follow up with his regular doctor in a few days.
