Barnegat’s Chris Nueva Recovering from Scary Moment

Follow Scott Stump on Twitter


Barnegat senior wide receiver defensive back Chris Nueva is at home and in good condition, according to Bengals coach Rob Davis, after a scary moment in Saturday night’s 49-14 loss to No. 1 Matawan. Nueva took a booming hit on a kickoff in the first quarter and collapsed. He was down on the field and was attended to by the athletic trainer and a team doctor. They did not need to use a defibrillator to revive him, but he was down for a while before being taken by ambulance to Riverview Medical Center in Red Bank. He has since been released from the hospital and is resting at home, according to Davis.

“He needed medical assistance for precautionary reasons, but he’s with his family at home now and is fine,” Davis said. “The doctor and trainer did a great job.”
