Former Lubbock High School Quarterback Marsaughn Moses is recovering at Covenant Medical Center, after undergoing surgery for a severe spinal injury.
NewsChannel 11's Colin McElroy spoke with Moses' mother Beverly Sunday night. Moses is recovering in Covenant's Intensive Care Unit after undergoing three and a half hours of surgery Saturday evening.
Moses broke his fifth vertebrae Saturday in the Hub City Bulls' game against San Angelo Calvary; he was tackled and landed on his head. The 20-year-old was in town to play with the Bulls for one game before returning to Oklahoma Panhandle State University where he is a sophomore.
"He has movement in the upper shoulder, in both the left and right arm. He's going to go through a lot of intense physical therapy. Right now, we are just holding on the Lord. They can say one thing, but God is in control," Beverly Moses said.
A fund to help Marsaughn Moses and his rehabilitation effort has been set up at an area bank. Account information will be available Monday. NewsChannel 11 will provide that information as soon as it becomes available Monday.
