A Papillion-La Vista high school football player remains in critical condition after being injured in a game Friday night.
 
Brandon Steburg suffered a head injury during the game and doctors at Nebraska Medicine are monitoring pressure on his brain. He is currently in a medically induced coma. 
 
The Steburg family issued the following statement Monday morning: "We are overwhelmed by the amount of support, well wishes and prayers coming from friends and so many others in the Papillion and Omaha communities, as well as other surrounding areas and across the state. We can't express how much this means to our family during such a difficult time. Brandon is making progress in his recovery but we would appreciate privacy as he continues to take the next steps in the healing process."
