— Rising junior East Carolina University football players Terrell Stanley and Isaac Harris were involved in a serious automobile accident Wednesday morning on U.S. Highway 264 Alternate.

Stanley was the driver in a single-vehicle accident and is listed in critical condition according to Vidant Medical Center. Harris, the passenger, was also transported to Vidant and released after precautionary evaluations were completed.

"Terrell is under the best medical care possible, and while he has showed signs of steadily improving, we ask that you keep him in your thoughts and prayers," said head coach Ruffin McNeill. "His parents, sister and other family members are here with his teammates and coaches, and together we have been and will continue to be a force that runs deep with support and inspiration."

A defensive end from Southport, N.C, Stanley started 12 of 13 games as a sophomore for the Pirates during the 2013 season and stood among the team’s top 10 tacklers with 46 stops. He also ranked second on the unit with 7.0 sacks and was third with 10.0 tackles for lost yardage to earn All-Conference USA (honorable mention) honors.

Harris, from Irmo, S.C., opened 12 of 13 contests at the left offensive tackle position and played a key role in East Carolina’s record-setting 10-3 campaign that included new school single-season standards in most points scored, highest scoring average, most total yards and most passing yards.

Both players were on their way to ECU from their off-campus residence when the accident took place.
