Air Force DB Carried Off Field
PROVO, Utah (AP) _ Air Force defensive back Tony Metters was knocked unconscious and was removed by ambulance during the fourth quarter of Saturday’s game against BYU.
Metters, a 6-foot, 185-pound junior from Mansfield, Texas, was injured on a 56-yard scoring pass from Kevin Feterik to Margin Hooks with 10:18 remaining.
Metters and Wes Glisson converged on Hooks as the ball arrived, and the collision put both Air Force players on the ground. Hooks kept his balance and outraced three other defenders to the end zone.
After the play, Metters lay on the turf 12 minutes as trainers from both teams attended.
Air Force officials said Metters had a bloody nose but, after regaining consciousness, was able to move his arms and legs. He was taken to Utah Valley Regional Medical Center for a precautionary neurological examination.
