NC: High school football coach suffers paralyzing accident

High school football coach suffers paralyzing accident

January 07, 2009

The long-time coach of the Hannah-Pamplico High School football team suffered a tragic fall last week and is in the trauma unit at an area hospital.

He's paralyzed and school officials say doctors aren't sure if it's permanent.

For nearly 18 years, Coach Kirk Mays has stood on the sidelines guiding his Hannah-Pamplico Raiders to many victories.

But now the beloved coach is in a trauma unit at McLeod Regional Medical Center following a tragic accident last week.

"Everything that he's pushed the kids to do, it's time for him to do now," said Robert Sullivan, Superintendent of Hannah-Pamplico schools.

Coach Mays was hunting when he fell from a deer stand in Pamplico. The fall left him paralyzed.
