Ventura County Football Player Recovering Following Brain Surgery After Concussion In Game

Posted on Tuesday, September 20, 2011 12:51pm

A high school football player from Ventura County remains in stable condition at a San Luis Obispo County hospital today (9/20), after a game injury led to emergency brain surgery.

Oxnard High School safety Adrian Padilla suffered a serious concussion in last Friday night’s 28-7 loss to San Luis Obispo High School.

He walked off the field after a play, but collapsed on the sidelines, and was rushed to Sierra Vista Regional Medical Center.

Counselors met with students at Oxnard High to help them cope with the crisis.  A relief fund has been set up at Santa Barbara Bank and Trust in Adrian Padilla’s name, to help with costs connected with the injury.
