Supporters turn out for injured Idalou football player

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Supporters turned out for an injured Idalou football player Friday night. Family and friends organized a benefit concert to help pay for Tanner Cook's growing medical bills.

Cook suffered a serious head injury during a football game in December. He is recovering, but still attends intensive therapy five days a week and has short term memory loss.

Cook and his family say they are thankful for everyone who attended. They say donations will help Tanner reach his ultimate goal. "My goal is to get back to where I was, to get right back to the place that I was at and continue with my life the way I had it planned," Tanner Cook said.

The family is also accepting donations to the Tanner Cook Medical Fund at any City Bank location.
