ENFIELD — A Woodstock Academy football player was hospitalized Friday night after suffering a seizure during a game at Enfield High School, officials said.

Football coach and Athletic Director Sean Saucier said the player, his son Braiden Saucier, remained in the Intensive Care Unit on Saturday afternoon.

His son was taken to Baystate Hospital in Springfield, Mass., after suffering a seizure during a Week 1 game against Enfield. 

Woodstock Academy Head of School Christopher Sanford said Friday night that the player was in stable condition.

The game was suspended with 7 seconds remaining in the first quarter and Enfield leading 14-7, according to the CIAC. A makeup date had not been determined as of Sunday afternoon.

A senior at the school, Saucier took over this season as the team’s starting quarterback.
