Oklahoma Christian School's Luke Frankfurt appeared to have suffered a serious injury Saturday night in the fourth quarter of the Saints 44-41 win over Davis in the Class 2A state championship game.

But the sophomore linebacker/running back was released from the Stillwater hospital early Sunday morning, said his father, Mitch Frankfurt.

Frankfurt injured his neck on a tackle, and his right side momentarily went numb, his father said.

Frankfurt was transported by ambulance to the hospital for tests.

As a result, Frankfurt missed the chance to celebrate the state title with his teammates on the field, but the OCS team bus made a stop at the hospital the on the way back to Edmond.

OCS coach Derek Turner said the nursing staff wasn't keen on the idea of a trophy presentation and celebration at the hospital.

“We were going in to see him in groups of five until they ran us out,” he said.

It's about as dramatic as a high school wrestling tournament gets before the state tournament.

Entering the final three matches at the Mid-America Nationals tournament over the weekend at Tulsa Union, Edmond North trailed Collinsville by 11 points for the team title.

The Huskies had three finalists — triplets Lance, Joel and Andrew Dixon remaining in championship matches — and needed all three to win to pull off a comeback win.

At 182 pounds, Lance earned a reversal in the second period and came out with a 3-0 win over Matt Meyer of Allen, Texas. Joel followed with a 4-2 win over Altus' Sean Carson at 195.
