GILMER, Texas (KETK) — Morgan Lusty was a stand out wide receiver and free safety for the Gilmer Buckeyes and became an ETBU Tiger in 2019.

But this past Thursday, he was involved in a serious swimming pool accident.

Lusty has been paralyzed due to the accident, and recently had surgery.

He is currently in a Longview hospital, but they are looking to move him to Dallas or Houston.

A fundraising page has been set up, to help his family during the hospital stay.

HomeTown Graphics & More is also planning on selling t-shirts to raise money for the family.
