That's terrible to hear. Let's hope he is going to be alright.

I'm glad he's ok and hope he makes a speedy recovery. What a scary thing to witness.

This Utah fan wishes you a speedy recovery young man. Postponing the game was the right move.


Very traumatic experience, but good on the athletic training staff being prepared to handle the situation. Great example of why competent medical staff are needed at every level of athletics. Best of luck to Danny in his recovery, hopefully the long term effects will be minimal.

Good to see they have AEDs at athletic facilities. Still remember the unfortunate incident where a BYU hockey player died from a blocked shot to his chest because they couldn't get his heart back in rhythm.

Here's hoping for a speedy recovery, a classy move by BYU to postpone the game.

Farmington, UT

Get well soon Danny! We hope to see you back on your feet again, and hopefuly on the court again as well. Go Aggies!

Scary situation... we're praying for you!

Super Kid and super family. I follow USU much more closely as I know the Berger family. So proud of Danny. I know Dad was coming down to watch the next few weeks of games.

From a text from Dad he expressed his thanks to the USU trainer as he came to his rescue and he saved Danny's life. He is a real hero here. Also thanks to USU for having the needed emergency equipment in place when needed.

Danny is a fighter and will recover. I just hope it is not serious and he can come back to play for USU.

Praying for you Danny and the Berger Family.

Las Vegas, NV

We are all praying for your recovery. Get well soon!
