Paramedics relieved Anderson and other coaches and continued CPR before taking the 16-year-old teen to Utah Valley Regional Medical Center. Doctors later discovered Smith has a heart condition that led to his collapse.
Bromley said Orem High teachers and administrators focused Friday on helping Smith's fellow students and teammates deal with the shock.
However, many students had found their own way to show support for their ailing friend.
"A lot of the kids came to school dressed up, boys in shirts and ties and girls in dresses, to show their support for Ben. They are also making and signing posters in the [school's] commons area, and when Ben wakes up, those posters will be taken up to him," Bromley said.
Bromley said she had been told that doctors may attempt to awaken Smith as early as late Friday afternoon. But late Friday night, the hospital could not confirm if Smith had revived.
His family, including parents Richard and Susan Smith and his 17-year-old brother, Jeremiah, were keeping vigil.
