UT athlete still in coma
as he continues to make
moves toward recovery

Contributing Writer

Five months ago. doctors didn‘t
give Scott Hartman much of a
chance to live.

Although he is still in a coma the
19- year-old member of the Universi-
ty of Tennessee‘s track team contin-
ues to make progress.

Hartman. of Brentwood. Tenn.
was hit on the head during the Ken-
tucky Relays in April by a track
hammer — a it‘rpound steel ball at-
tached to a chain. He was was then
taken to Central Baptist Hospital
where he underwent surgery to re-
lieve pressure on his brain.

In mid- -May. Hartman was moved
to a hospital in Vanderbilt Tenn.
About a month later he was moved
again to Rebound Inc. a privately-
owned comatose management facili-
ty within the Nashville Memorial
Hospital said Hartman‘ s father.

Rebound Inc. is a unit for the “re-
habilitation of traumatically brain-

injured individuals.‘ said Larry
Snyder executive director of Re-
bound Inc. at Nashville Memorial

According to Tom Mattingly. Ten-
nesse‘s assistant sports information
director. “He's tScotti progressing
as well as can be expected. it‘s just
a slow process. "

“(He's) going through the proc-
esses of a child.“ Cleon said.

Hartman is able to communicate
through the use of facial expressions
and hand gestures. Cleon said. He
yawns stretches moves his right
arm and leg and answers questions
with his right thumb Cleon said

"The other day I asked Scott if he
wanted to go fishing and his thumb
went straight up ‘he said.

Cleon also said “(Scott 5) eyes are
open about 25 percent of the time‘

although there is no pupil response
which may indicate that he is blind.

Cleon said he believes Scott is ca-
pable to think logically and reason
but he is trapped inside of his body
“like he sin a prison.


While listening to a Tennessee
football game on television. Cleon
said Scott began waving his right
arm when the Volunteers scored a
touchdown and intercepted a pass.

While Scott is still not unable to
communicate verbally he did mum-
ble what sounded like “Renee" dur—
ing an ambulance ride to Nashville
Memorial Hospital Cleon said
Renee was Hartman‘s sister who
was killed in an automobile accident
byadrunk driver.

Other than that, Cleon said Scott
has only mumbled "uh-huh."
