GLYNDON, Minn. – A Perham boys basketball player was taken to Sanford Medical Center tonight after collapsing during a game.

Zach Gabbard, a junior, collapsed halfway into the first half of the game at Dilworth-Glyndon-Felton High school, said D-G-F athletic/activities director Craig Anderson.

His condition was unknown as of 9:20 p.m.

Anderson said Gabbard was near the Perham bench when he collapsed.

He said a defibrillator was used on Gabbard before emergency crews rushed him to the hospital nearly 10 minutes after he initially collapsed.

Coaches from both schools sent players to the locker rooms while administrators cleared fans out of the gym.

“I’ve never seen anything like this,” said Anderson, who has been at D-G-F for 23 years.
