Star City linebacker Zack Towers who has been hospitalized for more than a month after collapsing on the football field is showing signs of waking. He has been moving around a lot over the past two weeks, and today moved his eyelids, according to KARK 4 reporting information from social media sites created to share information about Towers.
Towers, a senior, has been hospitalized since November 1 when he collapsed on the football field in the Bulldogs’ home game against the Crossett Eagles. Since then he has had surgery and battled a fever. He started breathing on his own three weeks ago and was moved out of intensive care last week.
A Zack Towers benefit fundraiser at Cane Creek State park on Saturday raised more than $2,000 for the Towers family.
