Brenham Cubs fans were excited for the first high school football game of the season. But some fans were also supporting another team.
“Justin Davis is the best kid in the world!” said Thomas Wells.
Hundreds of Cubs fans wore “Team Justin” t-shirts to support 17-year-old Justin Davis and his family.
Almost two weeks ago, Davis suffered a stroke after football practice. Doctors say he's still in serious condition at St. Joseph Hospital.
“Everyone has him in their prayers, he's on everyone's mind,” said Kaitlyn Nienstedt, a Brenham High School student
Doctors at St. Joseph Hospital can't say what the recovery process will be like for Davis, but they do say stroke is extremely rare in kids his age.
“He's doing tremendously well. He's been moved from ICU to a regular room. He's stood twice this week. And we just continue to believe god that he's going to work a miracle,” said Rev. Randy Wells.
Reverend Wells says Justin's recovery process will be a marathon, not a sprint. So the Davis family will need a lot of support from the Brenham community over the next few months.
Donations to the Davis family can be made at any Wells Fargo branch. The family’s fund is listed under “Benefit for Justin Davis”.
