LITTLE ROCK, AR - FOX16 News has learned that Star City High School football player Zack Towers has died.

Towers had been on a long road to recovery after suffering a head injury on the field in November 2012 that put him in a coma from which he did not regain consciousness for several months.

Officials with Easter Seals in Little Rock tell us that Towers died this morning in the hospital. 

The last post on the Facebook page that had kept people up to date on his condition was entered on Jan. 28 and stated:
Zack is having a good week after a rough week last week. We spent all day in the ER at Children's last Tuesday with him. Still having neuro storms and they sometimes last for a long time. He continues to go home on the weekends and he seems to have adjusted well at his temporary home. Please remember to pray for him. We still have a long way to go. God is not through with Zack's situation.
