For those of you that say prayers, I humbly ask that you do so for one of my runners who was accidentally hit by a car yesterday on a run. He has a lot of surgery ahead of him and I beleive that he and his family will covet your prayers. Thank you, Neal Blackburn Rock Bridge High School

Very sorry to hear this. Every coach has undoubtedly had at least a few close calls in this type of situation. I will definitely pray for your athlete. Sean Nunn Raytown South

Coaches, Thank you for your prayers. His family, myself, and our program are grateful for lifting this young man up through prayer. He has had two surgeries, awaiting one more, and the doctor is cautiously optimistic that progress is being made. We are specifically praying for good circulation, and due to the nature of the fractures, a cleansing of the area without infection. The outpouring of prayer and helpfulness during this time from the running community, and specifically cross country kids and teams, is further proof of what a beautiful sport this is. Thank you.

He had his third, and hopefully final, surgery yesterday. The surgery was quite extensive and we are continuing to pray that he will not develop an infection. He's not quite out of the woods with potential complications, be we are patiently waiting word from the doctor that he may actually be able to go home by the end of this week. Thank you for the continued outpouring of prayer. Coach Blackburn
