Heart condition ends LaSpada's HS career

ESPNBoston is reporting that Billerica senior quarterback Nick LaSpada has a hole in his heart, as well as blood clots in his lungs. The condition has forced him to give up football for at least the rest of the season and possibly forever. LaSpada is currently in the hospital recuperating.

LaSpada, the 2009 Gatorade State Player of the Year, was rushed to the hospital on Saturday night, where a CAT scan revealed the blood clots and the heart condition. Bob Holmes of The Boston Globe is reporting that LaSpada is being shut down for at least six months.
