A reserve member of the Navy football team sustained serious injuries in a vehicle accident, the Capital Gazette is reporting.

According to the paper, reserve quarterback Ralph Montalvo was at home in Miami for the Thanksgiving holiday and a passenger in a one-car wreck.  While few details are known, it’s not believed alcohol was a factor in the crash.

Montalvo is currently listed in critical condition with unspecified injuries, placed in a medically-induced coma in an effort to aid his recovery.  Navy has confirmed that head coach Ken Niumatalolo flew to Miami yesterday to be with his player and his family.

The true freshman had spent most of the 2012 season on the scout team before injuries at his position prompted a promotion to third-team quarterback.

    How the hell can anyone vote a thumbs down on prayers for a full recovery….

    Whatever piece of shit votes a thumbs down on these types of comments is a classless scumbag with no moral compass.

    Here’s to a speedy recovery and serving our military. Continued prayers for a speedy recovery!

    Echoing all of the above sentiments. God’s hand on him for a full, fast recovery.

    “southernpatriots” might know this better than most, but an “induced coma” doesn’t sound like anything remotely positive, but could it be? I’m hoping, medically speaking, that this is actually really good news and that it’s a way of ensuring he survives. Great to hear that Coach Niumatalolo can go be with the family. Can’t imagine what they’re going through. Prayers. God bless.
