(AJC) — A Walton County youth remained in an Atlanta hospital Tuesday after collapsing during football practice Monday afternoon.

Brant Rawls, a spokesman for Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta at Egleston, told the AJC that Jon Ross Snell was in critical condition early Tuesday.

Snell is on the 7th grade football team at George Walton Academy, according to a roster on the school’s website.

He was practicing with his team shortly before 4 p.m. when he told his coach he didn’t feel well, the Monroe Fire Department told Channel 2 Action News.
