Colville High School football standout Dale Martin was removed from life support after suffereing serious injuruies during a high school football game.

Dale Martin was a senior for Colville High School. He played fullback and outside linebacker for the team. Martin stood at 6’2 and weighed 192 pounds. Martin was playing against Deer Park when he was hit hard by another player. After the play, he stood up and said he did not feel good. He would collapse on the field. The ambulance would rush Dale Martin to the hospital in Mount Carmel.

Unfortunately, Dale would not make it.

Martin was taken off life support on Saturday after being hospitalized following a football game last week.

According to a Facebook post, Dale Martin’s injuries are too severe for him to survive. In a statement, Martin’s family wrote:

“Dale’s injuries are too severe for him to survive. We are going to have to let him go. We have had him transferred to mount Carmel hospital in Colville. I can’t express enough gratitude for the donations, fundraising love and support that this community has shown Dale and his family. The funds raised will help with the cost of transport from Kootenai where he was receiving treatment to here so he could be surrounded by friends and family. Dale is a donor so they are arranging a hero walk here at the hospital at 11:30 tomorrow where anyone can be here. Dale will be walked by everyone on his way to the surgical area where life support will be withdrawn at noon tomorrow.”

We wanted to send our thoughts and prayers to the Martin family. We are so sorry for your loss. We at NFL Draft Diamonds feel horrible for your loss. May Dale Rest in Peace.
