Aidan Carlson, the St. Charles North sophomore football player who suffered a severe brain injury during Friday’s game, has awakened from a coma, friends say on the Aiden’s Angels Go Fund Me page.
The 15-year-old was airlifted to Advocate Lutheran General Hospital, where he underwent emergency neurosurgery, according to school, social media and media reports.
Sean Peters, Aidan Carlson’s uncle, reported Monday that Carlson was able to wake up on his own.
“This is best news we’ve had all weekend, and we’re happy to share it with everyone,” he said. “We are beyond joyed to see how quickly the community came to aid Aidan and his family. The Carlson’s are so beside themselves with so many emotions right now but they are so incredibly grateful for every donation, prayer, and message they’ve received.”
Friday’s game was against crosstown rival St. Charles East. St. Charles Community Unit School District 303 has put counseling support in place for students and staff members at all schools.
Family members describe Carlson, who plays linebacker and running back on the St. Charles North sophomore football team, as a young man who came out of his shell when he joined the football team.
“We ask that you please respect our privacy at this time as Aidan is in his recovery,” Peters said on the Go Fund Me Page. “Once again thank you to everyone who has had Aidan in their hearts, please keep him there as he starts the next phase of his recovery.”
