Golston Still In I.C.U.

Defensive tackle prospect Kedric Golston got in a terrible car accident last week.

Early last week, All-American defensive tackle Kedric Golston was badly injured in an auto accident after school. Golston, from Tyrone (Ga.) Sandy Creek High School, was thrown from his vehicle and suffered a broken leg. He was airlifted to Atlanta Medical Hospital and had leg surgery the following day. Nine days later, Golston remains in the Intensive Care Unit and on a respirator.

"Kedric is doing better," said Sandy Creek Head Coach Rodney Walker. "He is still in the ICU and is slowly progressing. When he was thrown for the car, he was badly bruised and has had trouble breathing. Hopefully, in the next couple of days, he will get out of intensive care. This is going to be a long recovery and it has been traumatic for him. It will take some time."

Before the accident, Golston was on his way to Newnan to see a doctor about his knee. Doctors inserted a rod in Golston's right leg during the surgical procedure.

Golston, 6-4 and 280 pounds, is one of the most coveted defensive prospects in the nation. He is the rated the number one defensive tackle by TheInsiders.com. Golston has numerous scholarship offers and likes Georgia, Florida, Auburn, Tennessee, LSU and Florida State.
