Hospitalized Greenville player passes away

The Greenville football player that was severely injured during last Friday night’s game has passed away after sustaining a neck injury.

Jeremiah Williams, a junior DB, was airlifted to UMMC in Jackson after he fractured two vertebrae in his neck while making a tackle in the team’s game against Madison Central.

Williams was placed on a ventilator and doctors stated that he fractured his C1 and C4 vertebrae.

According to a Facebook post from Andrea Lesure Haynes, Williams has now passed away after a week in the hospital.

Just a day ago, a post was made stating the pressure in Williams’ brain had increased as doctors continued to conduct more tests. In the post made through a family friend, Williams’ mother said that she was waiting on a miracle.

“She is still very optimistic and believe that God will perform a miracle but doesn’t want him to suffer,” the post read. 

Madison Central plays Oxford tonight and during the game, they’ll be wearing a decal on their helmet to honor Williams.
