A community is working to help the family of a high school athlete who was paralyzed after a football scrimmage ten days ago. 

A gofundme account was set up for Jefferey Cox, as well as a Meal Train , which will help the family not have to worry about grocery trips or cooking meals.

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.
