Another tough blow for Corry’s Ryan Morris.
Battling injuries and finally getting back on the wrestling mat, the former PIAA runner-up was in the spotlight at Gannon University’s PSAC match at East Stroudsburg.
Wrestling at 197 pounds, Morris needed a big win since the Golden Knights were trailing, 20-16. The ex-Beaver was leading 5-4 in the third period.
That’s when he was slammed by his opponent, who was disqualified.
That gave Gannon six points and the win, 22-20.
Now that bad news.
Morris was knocked out briefly during his match. When he came to he didn't know where he was or what was going on. He was taken to the hospital by ambulance.
The CT scan was negative for a bleed, but he suffered a concussion. He reportedly had a horrible headache and will go into the concussion recovery program before he can return to the mat.
His parents brought him home from the hospital the next day.
