SAN JOSE, Calif. » The family of San Jose State football player Jared Leaf, a former University of Hawaii player, says the linebacker is in critical condition after suffering burns to his body while escaping from a fire in his apartment near campus last week.

Leaf, who had been listed as a starting linebacker for the Spartans at the conclusion of spring practice, is being treated at the Santa Clara Valley Medical Burn Center. He escaped the fire about a block from campus late Wednesday night.

Leaf's family expressed its appreciation for the hospital staff, San Jose State's coaches, players and athletic department officials as well as all others who have provided their support and help.

The family says, "Jared has a long road ahead of him, but we are confident he will recover" with the continued support from all.
