Mililani coach Rod York reported early Friday afternoon that running back Jalen Olomua is doing “great” and back home after being taken by ambulance to a hospital during Thursday night’s 71-28 victory over Farrington at Aloha Stadium.
“Thank God. X-rays were negative and he is home and will be back (to school and practice) on Monday,” York texted Hawaii Prep World. “It was precautionary.”
Olomua, a transfer this season from Kahuku, was hit in the back of the head by a Farrington player, apparently helmet to helmet, while going down during a rushing attempt in the second half. No infraction was called.
Olomua stayed down on the ground and received attention from trainers before an ambulance arrived.
Olomua, a 6-foot, 220-pound sophomore who also plays linebacker, rushed for 8 yards on two carries in the game and now has 66 yards on 11 carries and a touchdown this season.
