Tex Hollywood - September 14, 2022

A Minnesota high school football player was paralyzed from the shoulders down during his first game.

Ethan Glynn, a 15-year-old freshman cornerback for Jefferson High School, was placed on a ventilator after "a normal football play" left him motionless on the field.

He suffered major injuries to his neck and spinal cord, tragic story, but on the bright side, his family has been keeping supporters up to date on his progress and he was able to watch the Crimson Tide's narrow victory over Texas this weekend from his hospital bed

His first words since the incident:

"Roll Tide"

You can donate to his GO FUND ME because obviously this life changing injury is going to be expensive, but with the right attitude, he will continue to inspire !
