Lindsey suffered a brain injury during a game at Templeton High School on Sept. 18. An exact cause of the injury was never announced, but Lindsey was involved in at least three helmet-to-helmet hits during the game.
A few plays following the final helmet-to-helmet hit, Lindsey collapsed on the field. Emergency personnel transported him to Sierra Vista hospital, where he spent several days in critical condition.
After undergoing surgery and coming out of a medically induced coma, Lindsey was transferred to a rehab center in San Jose. Lindsey returned from San Jose on Tuesday.
Numerous members of the community greeted Lindsey and cheered him on as his car drove down Main Street.
A GoFundMe page for Lindsey and his family has raised $104,438. The pages states a fundraising goal of $132,000.
