Notre Dame freshman OL Parker Boudreaux hospitalized
Scott Daly’s heart was in the right place. His Twitter finger, though, may have been a little quick on the trigger.
The Notre Dame long snapper tweeted Sunday afternoon that Irish football teammate Parker Boudreaux was in the hospital with a serious brain infection, and was asking for prayers for the freshman offensive lineman.
Fellow ND long snapper John Shannon posted a similar message on Facebook.
“Apologize for alarming everyone,” Daly tweeted later. “Didn't have all the information. Parker is going to be OK. Excited for him to be back with us soon.”
ND football spokesman Michael Bertsch said Boudreaux was indeed admitted to a local hospital on Sunday for an undisclosed condition.
“He is in stable condition and resting comfortably,” Bertsch added.
Student privacy laws limited any more detail being provided. The condition is not believed to be life-threatening.
Not doing that well. Thank you for all the prayers .. I really do appreciate it.
