A community is working to help the family of a high school athlete who was paralyzed after a football scrimmage ten days ago.
The Houston County High football player suffered a spinal injury and has no movement below the neck. It's unclear how long he'll be hospitalized.
A benefit dinner will be held for the Cox family August 25 at Erin Town Square.
The community also rallied behind him a couple months later by sending him birthday cards for his 18th birthday.
If you'd like to send Jeffery a card, you can use the following address:
