Dylan Jeffries, 17, passed away on Sunday night due to brain injury suffered while playing high school football.
Dylan attended South Harrison High School in West Virginia. He had been in a medically-induced coma following surgery to remove a blood clot from his brain. Dylan collapsed during a September 27 game.
His injury pulled together a community that has six different high schools, with students and players from all over the county attending a prayer vigil, raising funds, and wearing helmet stickers this past weekend to honor Dylan.
It’s the worst nightmare for any parent, regardless of how it happens. And Dylan’s family will be in our thoughts and our prayers.Dylan’s family is raising money to offset the medical expenses, if you’d like to contribute.
