Matt McGlone will be playing basketball this winter.
McGlone, a senior at Norton, went through tests and his doctors have cleared him to play basketball after a brain aneurysm sidelined him for most of the football season.
McGlone, who is 6-foot-4 and 200 pounds, is ranked No. 1 academically in his class. He played in Norton’s final football game last month as a receiver and caught one pass and ran out of bounds against Coventry.
McGlone visited three different doctors and had two CAT scans and one MRI before he finally knew why he was feeling sick and uncomfortable in July and August.
McGlone underwent an angiogram at the Cleveland Clinic and then endovascular treatment, also known as coiling, with Dr. Mark Bain heading up the two-hour procedure on Aug. 27. McGlone returned home the next day.
McGlone plans to major in biomedical or civil engineering in college.
