Levelland Students Ban Together In Support Of Injured Athlete

In Levelland, students had a special reason to ban together in support of their team Friday night. That's because the cornerback for the Lobo's, Jeremy Green, is in the hospital instead of on the field.

Last week the 18-year-old damaged his neck and spinal cord while playing football. To show support, his fellow classmates wore his color and turned the stands green. Levelland administrators say its phenomenal how the entire school has come together and what's even more uplifting is Green's goal to recover.

"He's upbeat, he has a heart of gold, he just an energetic young man, he's got a strong faith and he's got promise for the future in his own mind. He is committed to walking," said Virdie Montgomery, Principal of Levelland High School.

Jeremy also told his principal that he will walk out of the hospital. In the meantime a fund has been set up to help Jeremy's family pay for medical expenses. You can make a contribution to the "Jeremy Green" fund at any branch of American State Bank.
