PANAMA CITY Fla- Bay High junior running back Carlos Wells remains in critical condition at Children's Hospital of Alabama after leaving Bay's Friday night game against Choctaw with a brain related medical condition. As of tonight there is some positive news, Carlos' family confirms doctors believe they successfully removed a blood clot from Carlos' brain, though they are guarded about that. After spending time to repair the area around the clot, Wells was taken to recovery. Bay Head Coach Frank Sorrells, along with Athletic Director Glenn Manley, are in Birmingham with the Wells family.
Bay High Principal Billy May tells Newschannel 7 sports they do not believe Wells was injured on a particular play during Friday night's game. According to May, Wells got nauseaus during the game, and so was taken to a nearby hospital. Carlos complained of a bad headache, and after tests showed perhaps a serious condition, he was airlifted to Children's Hospital in Birmingham, where the five plus hour surgery took place. As of tonight, the hospital lists Carlos in critical condition.

Wells has been at the Children's Hospital of Alabama since Friday night. Again his family is with him in Birmingham, as well as Sorrells and Manley.

The Children's Hospital of Alabama is located on the grounds of the UAB Medical Center in Birmingham, Alabama.
