MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — A suburban Twin Cities high school football player revived with a defibrillator after collapsing at practice is improving at a local hospital.

St. Thomas Academy headmaster Matthew Mohs says the teen is responsive and showing signs that he will recover. The unnamed student collapsed after practice Saturday at the Mendota Heights Catholic college prep school.

WCCO-TV ( ) says the team's assistant coach is also a doctor and immediately began chest compressions.
