Former football player in need of help

Marcus Jones, an Akins alum and former player for the varsity Eagles Football Team was injured late last spring during a practice for the Oklahoma Panhandle State University football team. On May 3, he made a play that would change his life. The accident left Jones severely injured and he is now battling for the ability to walk.

He is in rehab learning to walk, again. His mom started a Go Fund Me page for him to get a surgery to help him walk again. She is asking for anything you can donate, saying that every penny helps.
