Paralyzed High School Football Player's First Words Go Viral

Two weeks ago, a Minnesota football player was paralyzed from the shoulders down during his first high school game.

Ethan Glynn, a 15-year-old freshman cornerback for Jefferson High School, was placed on a ventilator after "a normal football play"

 left him motionless on the field. He suffered major injuries to his neck and spinal cord.

Glynn's family has been providing updates about the teenager's recovery process on CaringBridge. 

On Monday, Glynn uttered his first words since suffering the devastating injury. "Roll Tide," he said.

Glynn was able to watch the Crimson Tide's narrow victory over Texas this weekend from his hospital bed. 

The GoFundMe to support the Glynn family has raised more than $150,000 as of Wednesday.
