A Union High School football player has been on life support for over a week after his spleen ruptured in the middle of a game.
Senior Kofi Ansah, 17, suffered the rupture on Oct. 25 and has since been placed in a medically induced coma.
His coach, Lou Grasso, says Ansah's health is improving and the hospital is slowly moving him off life support while he remains in the intensive care unit.
A GoFundMe has been set up for Ansah and has raised nearly $19,000 so far.
The Union High School football team played for Ansah on Friday, and remains undefeated for the season.
