VEGA -- On Fri., Sept. 28, during the halftime show of the Vega High School football game vs. Sunray High School, Gridiron Heroes Spinal Cord Injury Foundation will present a wheelchair-accessible van to Luis Morales.

Morales, played for the Vega High School football team and is currently a student, suffered a spinal cord injury during a game in September 2011.

Friday's game starts at 7:30 p.m. at Vega High Schools Longhorn Field.

This will be the first wheelchair-accessible vehicle the Morales family has used since his injury. The handicapped-accessible van is the eighth that Gridiron Heroes has donated in nine years to high school football players who have sustained a spinal cord injury during a game. The van will be driven out on the field during the halftime show, followed by a special presentation to the Morales family.

Gridiron Heroes is a non-profit organization that supports individuals who have sustained catastrophic spinal cord injuries on the football field. The organization also works to educate about the importance of player safety. For more information about Gridiron Heroes and all of its heroes on and off the field, visit
