Update on LHS Player Injury

Reports from school officials provide some potentially good news this morning (Thursday, April 24) concerning the Louisville High football player injured in Spring practice earlier this week. Sixteen year old sophomore Marcus Banks is in ICU at University Medical Center in Jackson and recovering from spinal surgery performed on Wednesday. There has been concern of paralysis resulting from the injury and as is always the case in such injuries, it will be a period of time before the full extent of damage and recovery will be known. However, officials are indicating that it is a positive sign that Banks was able to move his toes this morning.

If you would like to contribute money or possible food gift cards from McDonalds or Subway for the family to cover costs, please contact Shannon Sewell Smith or the school district for more information.
