LeCounte, a 5-star safety from Liberty County (Ga.) High School, hit his head during the scrimmage and remained on the ground for several minutes. He was taken off the field in an ambulance.
After the scare, DawgNation’s Jeff Sentell reported that “all is well” with the high school senior.
The latest on LeCounte: "All is well" from a source close to the situation. Limited details beyond that at this point.

LeCounte reportedly was moving his arms and his legs while he was down. He was eventually taken off the field in a stretcher, and he waved to the crowd as he was lifted into an ambulance.
