I would like for all of you guys and gals on the BOC to say a prayer for my little brother. He plays high school football for Teays Valley (Left Guard on Offense and Nose tackle on Defense) This is his first year playing because he was always afraid of getting injured before wrestling. Well, last Friday he was the leading blocker going down field for the RB who was going in for the score. He made a nice tackle to spring the runner and either stepped on the guy or just twisted his foot wrong. Well, he tried to get up and was unable to and they had to carry him off the field onto the stretcher where they decided that they thought it was broke. He went for X-Rays that night and it was positive that there was a break in it. They put in in a half cast type and wanted him to go to a orthopedic surgeon this week to get it looked at again and a cast put on it. Well, he went today and they told him that he had what is called a Jones Fracture in the foot. The doctor told him that it is about the worse type of break you can get in the foot because it is where the least amount of blood vessels are so of course not as much calcium and such will travel to it. They put it in a hard cast for 6 weeks. At the end of 6 weeks they will cut the cast off and X-Ray it again. If it is healed pretty good then they will just put a walking cast on with a wooden shoe for another 3-6 weeks. If it is not healing well then they will go in and re break it and put a screw in it which means another 6-9 weeks off his feet. He is devastated because he was wanting his football letter and to be a 3 sport letterman again this year. Now he may not even get to wrestle which has really got him down. I would appreciate a prayer that all will heal well and I know if anyone wants to send him a card it would cheer him up. They said it is a very serious injury for anyone that plays sports and he is looking to get a wrestling and track scholarship for college. Thanks for taking the time to read this, it is much appreciated. He was a first year football player and was iron man on both sides. Just remember that at 16 in High School when everyone looks to you for your athleticism to pin the kid or get maximum points for your Discus Throw how much it would get you down. If you want to send a card just PM me and I would be more then glad to give ya his address. I would appreciate it.
