Paralyzed high school football player says “Roll Tide” as first words removed from ventilator

Bloomington freshman football player ethan glynn

Thomas Jefferson High School’s (MN) freshman, Ethan Glynn, who was paralyzed during a football game two weeks ago, spoke his first words since the incident. Glynn’s family released an update on him Monday and shared his first words were “Roll Tide.”

“We had a quiet weekend filled with lots of football and some much-needed rest. Ethan continues to amaze everyone with his grit and determination. Never have we been so excited to hear the words “roll tide”….today they removed E from the vent and those were the first words out of his mouth. The smile and twinkle in his eyes is priceless. This was a huge step, and we couldn’t be more thankful to reach this milestone at this point. He still has a long journey but this week is off to a great start!”

Ethan was able to watch the Crimson Tide take on the Texas Longhorns Saturday from his hospital bed.
