GENESEO — On Friday night, Geneseo High School football player Julian Huffman was injured during his team’s game against York/Pavilion and was removed from the field via an ambulance.
On Saturday, the Daily News received a few updates from the Huffman family on Julian’s condition.
“We are waiting for trauma unit to come so they can assess and hopefully remove his cervical collar along with his extra lines. He is talking, very alert and responsive, even tho he is still sleepy, and much to his chagrin having to be woken up every hour, he’s cranky,” read a statement from the family. “They are ecstatic to watch him make leaps and bounds with his recovery so far.”
Despite the positive early signs, doctors are taking things slow with Huffman, as he will remain in the hospital for a minimum of five days since the time he entered Strong Memorial Hospital.
“We did discuss he does want to make calls and reassure some people that he’s alright and will be back soon,” read the statement. “So if you receive a call or video, it will more than likely be this afternoon. We are waiting for neuro for all clear so he can have his lines removed. Oh, and get clearance to eat and drink!!! And to start walking around!!!!”
Any questions, concerns or well wishes are asked to be directed to the Huffman family, Justin Davison, Daniel Szczesniak or Mike Szczesniak, or any of the Geneseo coaches. The family asks that all refrain from posting or sharing any misinformation on social media.
“Last evening, I spoke to one of Julian’s teachers and gave her an update. I’m so glad that I did, as she had heard some of the rumors that were going around and she started to believe in the worse possible situation,” read the statement. “We will continue to do our best to inform everyone in a timely manner and with any updates that we may gather, but please keep in mind that our family and friends will be notified first and then the general public. Please refrain from posting or sharing the information, unless advised by us. We thank you for your continued support and all of your love following our wishes for privacy as our family copes and heals from this! Stay strong.”
On Sunday, the Daily News received further positive news regarding Huffman’s condition.
“Continued positive news for my fighter!! He’s cleared to have little sips of water for now,” read the statement. “They said if he continues to make positive progress he can start to slowly eat. IV’s are approved to come out except one that gives him his fluids to stay hydrated and IV meds. They took his head wrap off said everything is great. Neurosurgeon is very happy and impressed with his progress!!! Trauma has also cleared him so no more cervical brace collar. He’s approved to ‘move about the cabin’ GUYS!!!!! I am beyond excited!!! Tomorrow he gets evaluated to see strengths and weaknesses!!! Please continue to have the prayers coming!!! The next 24 hours are the most crucial for him!!!”
Huffman is a standout two-way player for Geneseo. In the Blue Devils’ Week 3 game against East Rochester/Gananda, Hufman recorded nine receptions for 41 yards.
