University of Florida basketball star Keyontae Johnson is in critical condition after collapsing on the court in the middle of a game.
It’s terrifying to watch. The game — Gators vs. Seminoles — was in timeout. Just before that Keyontae successfully finished an alley-oop and was celebrating the move from the sidelines. The team broke its huddle, and as Keyontae walked onto the court he collapsed hard.
His teammates screamed for help and Keyontae was taken off the court by stretcher and was rushed by ambulance to Tallahassee Memorial Hospital.
Keyontae had positively tested for COVID this past summer. It appears one of the side-effects was myocarditis … inflammation of the heart muscle.
He’s in critical but stable condition. We wish him well.
