A former college football player named Jason Seaman, who played at Southern Illinois from 2007-2010, is being hailed a hero for his actions Friday morning at Noblesville West Middle School in Indiana. During yet another school shooting, Seaman reportedly took three bullets protecting students and still found a way to help stop the shooter.

Seaman's mother, Kristi, has been providing updates on her son on her Facebook page. The latest? Seaman is out of surgery and "doing well" - which is a huge relief.

Seaman was one of two people shot during the attack. The other was a 13-year-old female student. There hasn't been much released regarding her status.

Obviously, Seaman is being regarded as a hero. It's hard to disagree.

Seaman's former program has posted a number of tributes to him since the news broke.

No information has been released on the shooter, though initial reports suggested it was a student at the school. It looks like Seaman might have prevented the attack from being much, much worse.
