CHAPIN, SC (WIS) - Chapin High School students and staff showed their support Friday morning for a lacrosse player who was injured during a game earlier this month.

Jack Enright reportedly fractured his neck March 4th, during a lacrosse game against Lexington.

Friday, Chapin High School hosted a pep rally to show support for Enright. "Your support for this cause has been astounding, it has been amazing." Chapin principal Dr. Akil Ross said at the rally. "This is a time we need to come together to support a fellow Eagle."

Next week students will make video tributes to send to Enright. 

Support has been pouring in for the teenager. More than $12,000 has been raised through a “Pray For Jack” online fundraising page. According to a write-up on the page, the money will help cover medical bills. Enright's brother Connor was at the pep rally Friday. He said his family is grateful for all the support they received. 

Enright is in Atlanta at the Shepard's Spinal Rehabilitation Center. As a result of the injury, he's unable to move below his waist.

An online fundraiser for Jack has brought in more than $12,000 in four days. 

Chapin High School will be selling t-shirts, wristbands, and magnets as fundraisers, to raise money for his medical costs.
