For a lacrosse player in season, there is a reasonable probability that the person might have had a concussion that had not healed before the drinking incident....
-- Furthermore, in addition to the degradation in motor skills, a person who understands how risky this situation is could also be assessing his mental clarity. Does he seem groggy and confused, is his speech slurred, is he unable to make good eye contact? Does he say he is tired? Does he feel cold? Any of these, in this situation, further suggest that 911 should be called.
-- When they checked on him at 11:30 in the morning, he had been in bed for 18 hours. How could they not realize something is wrong still? Because he was somewhat conscious. However, he had not recovered still, was not getting out of bed, he was probably still groggy and confused, he was probably still not making good eye contact, still not communicating well, and still saying he is tired. Another clearly missed opportunity to realize that they need to call 911.
