A Duke University sophomore wide receiver is listed in critical condition after an Independence Day jet ski accident, according to the Raleigh News and Observer.

Blair Holliday is being treated at UNC Hospitals in Chapel Hill after unintentionally colliding with a fellow Blue Devil teammate at a lake one hour east of Charlotte, N.C.

In a statement, Duke head coach David Cutcliffe thanked the UNC Hospitals staff and asked for prayers for the Holliday family.

“First and foremost, our thoughts and prayers are with Blair, his parents, Leslie and Rick, and the entire Holliday family.  The Holliday family is one of tremendous character and strength, and is truly an inspiration for all of us."

Holliday caught three passes for 30 yards last year as a freshman but was projected to be a starter this upcoming season.

The News and Observer's Jack Daly said surgery is not imminent.
