LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) — Relatives of a Wyoming football player say he is recovering after he suffered a stroke.

A roommate of 19-year-old Xavier Lewis noticed Lewis was having difficulty speaking Wednesday night. The roommate took Lewis to the hospital in Laramie.

From there, Lewis was life-flighted to Swedish Medical Center in Englewood, Colorado.

Lewis' father, Quentin Lewis, told the Casper Star-Tribune (http://bit.ly/12XgBtn ) Friday his son is resting and recovering. Quentin Lewis says there is no history of stroke in their family and his son hasn't had health issues in the past.

Lewis is a 6-foot, 195-pound sophomore safety from Aurora, Colorado. He has made 27 tackles in two seasons at Wyoming.
