One day after suffering a stroke, T.L. Hanna High football player Jake Nicolopulos was upgraded from critical condition to serious Thursday.
Nicolopulos, a linebacker who has committed to Clemson, underwent surgery at AnMed Health Medical Center in Anderson on Thursday morning.
Doctors had hoped to airlift him to the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston for the surgery. Those plans were scrapped due to high winds that made traveling by helicopter unsafe.
