Hill-Murray School senior football player Zachary Zarembinski was placed in a medically induced coma after being treated for a brain bleed on Oct. 27 after he collapsed during a football game. 

According to a Hill-Murray statement released with his family’s blessing, Zarembinski suffered a head injury and was taken by ambulance to a local hospital. There, he was immediately taken into surgery and then placed in a coma. 

The Hill-Murray community has started a GoFundMe page to help cover Zarembinski’s medical costs with a goal of raising $100,000. As of Nov. 2, more than $45,000 had been raised.

Per the GoFundMe page, Zarembinski collapsed on the sideline of the football field after not feeling well, and was treated at the hospital for a brain bleed. 

In support of the family, Hill-Murray also invited students to wear green to school on Nov. 1, as well as people in the school’s greater community to wear green to work and around the community. The school also celebrated a Mass in Zarembinski’s name on Nov. 1. 

In the Hill-Murray statement, the Zarembinski family said they were grateful for the quick action from the coach, trainer and first responders. “We ask for your continued prayers for our strong, brave son Zach,” the family said.
