Two Frisco students were taken to Parkland Hospital after they were injured in separate accidents.
A football player at Centennial High School in Frisco was injured during practice on Monday afternoon. Officials didn't immediately know the severity of the injury, but the player was taken by CareFlite from the practice field to Parkland.
Students tell FOX 4 the football player injured is Jeremichael Deason, a sophomore playing on the varsity football team.
"A lot of my friends are calling me, crying ‘Oh my gosh, Jeremichael, have you heard anything?,' said friend Chloe Gordon.
No coaches or players spoke to FOX 4 about the injured player, but all appeared to be shaken and worried about him. The district said two players collided during a tackling drill and that's when the young man was injured.
The other injury is one of three that happened during science class at Roach Middle School. It happened shortly after 3:30 p.m. on Monday.
Frisco fire officials said students were burning salts during a science experiment when a small flash fire occurred following a chemical reaction. Officials said strontium chloride, methyl alcohol and a stick lighter were involved in the small flash fire.
One student was taken by air ambulance to Parkland Hospital in Dallas for treatment. She was released late Monday night.
