Luke Schemm, a Wallace County High School senior from Sharon Springs, KS is dead after suffering a traumatic brain injury during an 8-man football game against Otis-Bison High on Tuesday.
Brian McVay, superintendent and principal of Wallace County schools, said: ‘The team was gathered on the sidelines getting ready to go for the kick. Before they even left the sideline, he just collapsed.
Schemm was airlifted to a hospital in Denver, CO where he was kept on life support until his family arrived. Luke was taken off of life support Wednesday afternoon.
Larry O’Connor, Wallace County athletic director, told The Wichita Eagle: ‘Oh, this hurts. We’ve had people up at the school and with the kids. Our whole community was there last night. It’s going to affect the community big time because we’re so tight.
