STAB's Kyle Long was released from the hospital at 12:30am Saturday morning, just hours after suffering a neck injury in the Saints' game with Liberty Christian. He was taken off the field in an ambulance.

CBS19 spoke with STAB Athletic Director Doug Tarring and Head Football Coach John Blake. They said that Long passed all of his exams and were thrilled to hear the good news. Long will have a follow-up appointment on Monday. There is no timetable for his return.
