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.
