A benefit is planned for the former Mankato football player nearly beaten to death almost two weeks ago. Isaac Kolstad remains in critical condition after allegedly being assaulted by two men. One of them is said to be former gopher quarterback Philip Nelson, the other, Trevor Shelley.

Issac Kolstad, who used to play football for Minnesota State University, Mankato, is still in critical condition. He will not undergo any other procedures or surgeries for the next couple days, according to his brother Blaine Kolstad.
