Brocton, NY (WIVB) - Green, blue and white ribbons are wrapped around every tree and telephone pole, outside Brocton Central High School, symbolizing that everyone in the community is hoping and praying for 16-year-old Damon Janes.
Janes, who is a junior at Brocton and plays on the football team, was injured during an away game at Portville on Friday night.
After a helmet-to-helmet hit with another player, Janes became unconscious, and was taken to Women and Children's Hospital. As of Sunday night, he was in critical condition in the intensive care unit.
All weekend, Twitter has been lighting up with comments from Janes' friends, classmates, even complete strangers, under #PrayForDamon.
Some students are asking each other to wear green to school on Monday, to show their support for Janes.
Through a hospital spokesperson, Janes' family asked for privacy, "as they fight and pray for him."
Brocton Superintendent John Hertlein says the district's "thoughts and prayers are with [Janes'] family, friends, classmates and teammates... We need to attend to the needs of the family and our students and staff."
Counselors were available at the high school on Saturday and Sunday night.
