LEAKE COUNTY, Miss. (WJTV) — A Leake Academy football player is hospitalized after Monday’s football practice.

A family member of 16-year-old Grant Roberson said the 10th grader told his coach after practice that he wasn’t feeling well.

He was taken to Baptist Medical Center Leake in Carthage. He had to be airlifted to University of Mississippi Medical Center. Doctors said he had the flu and that was complicating things, according to his aunt Dana Roberson.

She said he is in the intensive care unit.
