Freshman hurt in game against Corcoran but was released that night

 A Taft Union High football player was examined and released at a Kings County hospital after suffering a neck injury during a game in Corcoran Friday night.

Jeremy Wilmer went down with the injury during the junior varsity game but came home that night after a trip to the hospital.

“He's fine,” Athletic Director Marsha Eubank said.

Wilmer is a freshman lineman for the JV team.

The game was held up while an ambulance was summoned.

Corcoran High school had a physician at the game, Eubanks said, but no ambulance standing by.
