Once in a Coma, Pennsville Athlete Continues 'Miracle' Recovery


(Philly.com) – The doctors and nurses, the specialists and therapists, they knew their stuff. They just didn't know Kyle. Not the way his family knows Kyle. Not the way his friends know Kyle. Not the way his former football coach at Pennsville High School knows Kyle.

"Amazed, yes. Surprised, no," Pennsville coach Ryan Wood said of his reaction to the remarkable recovery made by his former star wide receiver, Kyle Pszenny, in the one year since he was struck by an automobile while riding his skateboard. "He's built to come back from this. Not everybody is. But this kid is." Tuesday marks the one-year anniversary of the accident in which Pszenny suffered what doctors told his mother, Crystal Parks, was a "devastating, severe brain injury." CONTINUE
