H.S. B-Ball Player Who Collapsed Recovering Closer To Home

PERHAM, Minn. (WCCO) — A Perham High School basketball player who collapsed on court during a game is now continuing his recovery closer to home.

Gabbard’s teammates won the state championship and he was able to make it out to cheer his friends on.

Gabbard had been receiving treatment in the Twin Cities.
