UPDATE: Bledsoe Teen Suffered From Previous Condition

Posted: Updated:

BLEDSOE COUNTY, TN. (WRCB) -- Bledsoe County High School football coach read a piece of paper saying "Please keep us lifted up in your prayers. We need a miracle. God is in control."

He was reading the words of Paula Boring, the mother of Kainen Boring.

Paula won't leave her son's bed site.

The 17-year-old junior was diagnosed with something called Arteriovenous Malformation.

It causes a cluster of blood vessels erupt with the slightest sudden jerk.

His coach knows Bledsoe County is a caring and praying community.

Reel said, "We have to take each day and know he is fighting like a warrior."

Monday hundreds of students signed a banner dedicated to Kainen as he continues to recover.

Coach Reel said Kainen made a normal tackle one day in practice. As soon as he stood up, he fell back down into a seizure.

Football had very little to do with this.

The equipment manager at The University of Tennessee Chattanooga said even the best helmet could not have prevented something like this.

Mike Royster said, "The impact when the helmet hit the ground can be even greater than the initial impact."

Coach Reel said Kainen who played kicker, was training to play different positions on the field.

Down one less player and faced with a group of emotional teammates, he said this season will be dedicated to Kainen's recovery and everyone's life he has touched so far.

"These kids are learning that life what is we learn on the field," he said. "We have to take it in stride and continue to do what we do."

Kainen Boring is listed in critical condition.

His classmates plan to give gift baskets to the family.
