High school star Cole Lail in serious condition

I've done a couple postings about Cole Lail He's a star on William Blount High School's football team in Blount County, Tennessee. He was named to the PrepXtra defense first team in January, the premier regional high school all-star team.

He's a big, strong, tough football player. Tennessee, Stanford and North Carolina all would like him to suit up for them in college.

Today's he's in the hospital battling for his life. Lail developed bacterial pneumonia over the weekend and is in intensive care at a Blount County hospital.

There is a Web site where updates are being posted.

"He's a sick, sick, sick young man," William Blount football coach Scott Meadows told The Knoxville News Sentinel. "We need as many prayers as possible.".
