Rollie Dykstra, the University of La Verne quarterback who suffered a head injury in an Oct. 19 game, has emerged from a coma and has been transferred to Loma Linda University Medical Center Rehabilitation Institute from Pomona Valley Hospital Medical Center, Dykstra's father said.
"He understands commands, he has counted from one to 10 and he even said happy birthday to his brother, Richie," Roland Dykstra Sr. said. "There seems to be a lot of progress, and I'm happy about it."
Dykstra remains in serious condition.
