SHS players injured in crash improving


Somerset —

“I’m not playing football anymore, but I'm not dead,” Hinton stated in the television interview. “I'm 17. I'm alive.”
"I don't like people to look at me and get sad,” he continued. “That doesn't help the situation. A smile on somebody else's face helps me as much as them."
Hinton received much attention during Friday’s game, but one of his and Gilmore’s rescuers, EMT B.R. Callahan, was honored as well. Callahan, who was off-duty that day, was reportedly first on the scene and he stabilized both young men until more help could arrive.
Lucas said the Lexington Christian football team also presented cards and funds to Somerset’s team, which had been taken up in a collection to help cover medical costs for Hinton and Gilmore’s families.
“You couldn’t ask for better people,” Lucas said. “There’s some quality people out there who have nothing but good in their hearts.”
