East Carolina Pirates DE Terrell Stanley upgraded to ‘good condition’


East Carolina Pirates’ defensive end Terrell Stanley was in a car accident back on February 12. He and a teammate, offensive lineman Isaac Harris, were driving on U.S. Route 264 Alternate and crashed their car.

Both players were admitted to the hospital, but Harris was released on the same day.

On Monday, Stanley and East Carolina got great news when Stanley’s condition was upgraded to “good,” according to the Associated Press.

East Carolina says a football player hospitalized since being involved in an automobile accident last week has been upgraded to good condition.

Team spokesman Tom McClellan disclosed the status upgrade for defensive end Terrell Stanley on Monday.

He had been in critical condition at Vidant Medical Center in Greenville since the accident Feb. 12 on U.S. Route 264 Alternate.

Coach Ruffin McNeill says Stanley “is a warrior with a relentless and passionate approach to life.”

Stanley, a sophomore out of Southport, North Carolina, had 46 tackles and made 12 stars for the Pirates last season.
