    YORK COUNTY, PA (WPMT ) — A York County high school football player was back on the field Sept. 25, 11 months after suffering a devastating brain injury.

Patrick Maloney, 18, suffered a brain bleed and stroke during a football game last October while playing for Kennard-Dale High School in Fawn Township.

He was hospitalized for months.

He returned to the gridiron Friday night to help support his team, the Kennard-Dale rams.

He said he appreciated all the support from the community over the past year.

“It’s a pretty amazing feeling knowing that that many people care for me,” Maloney said.

Maloney was able to graduate from Kennard-Dale in August.

He is continuing physical therapy to regain natural movement.

He has also registered for two classes at Harrisburg Area Community College.
