Hunt is OK, released after two surgeries

Junior varsity player Kyle Hunt was released from Washoe Medical Center Monday night after two operations to remove a blood clot in his head which took him out of Saturday’s 38-13 win against North Tahoe.

Truckee coach Avon York said Hunt felt dizzy in the second quarter and took himself out of the game. Hunt then walked around before collapsing and being Careflighted to Reno.

Two operations successfully removed the clot and placed titanium plates in his head.

“He won’t return for the season,” York said, but did not speculate on Hunt’s future in sports.

“The first thing out of surgery, he asked the score of the game,” York said. “He is our inspirational leader and our physical leader.”

York said it was unclear whether the clot was football-related.

Hunt scored a touchdown for the Wolverines on a 23 counter before coming out.

Attempts to reach the Hunt family were unsuccessful.
