Spearman sophomore varsity football player Cameron Wolf is in the burn unit at University Medical Center in Lubbock, UMC officials said Saturday.
Wolf was airlifted from Spearman to UMC Thursday when he suffered second- and third-degree burns to his face, arms and hands when an explosion occurred while he was lighting a bonfire, according to a Guymon Daily Herald report and emails from Wolf’s friends and supporters.
Spearman Independent School District Superintendent Clay Montgomery said he could not release any information, or a name, involving a bonfire accident. But Montgomery did say, “We care about him. We’re all concerned for him. We all love him and his family.”
Kandi Wolf, Cameron’s mother, sent an email Friday to friends thanking them for prayers and “to please continue praying.” The email said doctors were waiting to check Cameron’s lungs and “they think they will be clear.” Kandi said Cameron has both arms wrapped and a face bandage. Cameron is sedated to help control the pain, but he does respond to requests.
“God is already at work,” Kandi said in the email.
Cameron is listed on the Spearman roster as a 5-foot-9, 145-pound quarterback/defensive back.
Spearman played a football game at Sunray on Friday night, winning 21-15 and improving to 4-0.
