Dallas Students Build House For Paralyzed Teammate

Comments:  | Leave A Comment

Some Dallas students aced a test of compassion…helping to build and beautify a home for a former football player, paralyzed during a game last year.

What started as a chance to help one student has now grown into a movement–which promises help for future injured athletes.

“When I first got injured I was like what am I going to do? I thought I was going to be different,” Jared Williams said.

A hit on the football field in October, 2009 left the 16-year-old paralyzed, but what Williams lost in mobility, he’s gained in the ability to move his peers.

“They talk about all the bad things that goes on in [the Dallas Independent School District], but now they have to kind of recant and think about what they say about our kids because they do care, they do have hearts, and they do want better things for each other,” Alenna Williams, Jared’s mother.
