The hardest thing to do is wake up and in the morning and read about another young football player that was shot and killed in the United States. We cover it a lot on NFL Draft Diamonds, because someone needs to tell their stories as well. SheRon Davis had a bright future ahead of him as a football player for Marist Red Foxes! He is a 5’10 wide receiver that grew up in Rochester, New York just a few hours from where I grew up.
SherRon, who is 20-years-old, was in the back parking lot at East High School when he was struck by gunfire. He had been with a few friends, but his family says SherRon was not the intended target.
“He was hit two times. One in his head, that fractured his skull, and one in his shoulder that fractured his arm,” Malikah Davis said. “Both bullets are still there, unfortunately. He has complete loss of hearing on his right side and fractured bones inside his ear canal.”
She’Ron is lucky though. He didn’t lose his life, the good Lord kept him alive and now his Mother is trying to get a message to the public to stop the violence and the senseless shootings.
While SherRon plans to head back to college in July to start physical therapy, his family is dealing with a swarm of medical bills, many of which aren’t covered by insurance. A GoFundMe account was set up for the family. He will still have to recover, but this is such a sad situation. Why does this continue to happen?
Please keep the Davis family in your prayers and continue to pray for these kids.
