It was a big scare for a Creighton Prep student who was hospitalized after a football injury.
While he is ok now, the first big hit of the season has football officials on their toes.
Officials at Omaha North High School kept an extra eye out, but everyone stayed level-headed with the plan they had in place.
Jamee Meysenburg is the Head Athletic Trainer of Omaha North.
She watches football games from the sidelines.
It's her job to spot injuries, even a scratch.
"Our kids are actually really good about coming to me, but if I see something on the field right away, we'll grab them and talk to them, and just make sure everything is ok," she said at Friday night's game.
With the risk that comes with football, people like Meysenburg are becoming more and more important.
Recently, a Creighton Prep player took a big hit, sending him away in an ambulance.
It turns out he is ok now, but at Friday's Omaha North game, staff stood ready, hoping nothing would happen.
If they would have seen an injury, Meysenburg would have rushed in and assessed the situation.
In a serious case, she can refer them to a doctor, or EMTs standing by.
"If we just need to ice them, we'll just ice them. If we need to send them to the doc, there's several sports medicine clinics in town that see the kids too so we can actually, if we can get the parents down here, we can send them there on a Friday night too," Meysenburg said.
Jim Savio, the Athletic Director for North Omaha says out of everything happening at the games, these precautions are the top priority.
"It's important because the number one factor in any athletic event is safety, and so everybody's got the squad here," he said.
Omaha North is also looking into a new piece of technology to help watch for injuries.
It's a chinstrap that flashes a bright light after a big impact.
