ANNAPOLIS, Md. -- The family of Navy running back Will McKamey says the freshman remained hospitalized Sunday after collapsing one day earlier during spring practice.

In a statement released by the Naval Academy, the McKamey family said, "There is no new news. We still have only small responses from Will."

McKamey was taken to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Unit after his collapse.

The family says: "Our God is using Will for a huge platform right now" and that Navy football players and coaches are "all here and doing everything in their power to pull Will through."

McKamey, a member of the Third Company at Navy, is a 2013 graduate of Grace Christian Academy in Tennessee.

He was an All-State selection and as a senior was named Mr. Football for the state.
