Zack Towers homecoming delayed because road conditions

(KATV) The family of a Star City high school football player delays a Christmas homecoming.

Zack Towers left the game November 1, after being hit in the 3rd quarter of a game against Crossett. He wasn't feeling well; rushed to a hospital and had surgery to stop bleeding in his brain. A relative told Channel Seven that Zack did suffer a concussion 2 weeks prior and was cleared to play.

Zack remains in a coma.

Zack Towers' mom posted on Facebook they thought they'd be taking Zack home Christmas Day, but they didn't want to chance the weather.

She said a lot of Zack's equipment depends on electricity so December 26 they'll buy a generator, hoping to take him home.

November 16th, Zack's parents spoke to Channel Seven. For that story, click here.
