Football Player Sidelined

A California School for the Deaf football player is on the sidelines after a trip to the hospital showed he's suffering from blood clots. Jacy Dike-Pedersen is junior playing both fullback and linebacker. A first-team All-Bay Football League selection at linebacker last season, he had breathing problems during a scrimmage in August. The 6-foot-3, 185-pounder ended up in intensive care for a week before going through surgery to remove a rib. While he can't suit up, Dike-Pedersen is now able to sit with the team during games and may play again next year. The Eagles are 5-0 so far this season and will face another undefeated team, Valley Christian, tomorrow night.
