It has been an emotional season for the Lebanon boys’ soccer team.
The team has battled through without their assistant coach, Jacob Woolsey, who was admitted into the hospital on Sept. 7 with a collapsed lung due to COVID-19. The next day, Woolsey was placed on a ventilator to help him breathe. He was taken off of the ventilator on Sept. 12 but remains in the hospital, according to a GoFundMe fundraiser launched earlier this week by Coach Matt Jernigan.
At press time, the fundraiser had raised $3,930 of its $4,000 goal. The money will help Woolsey and his wife with their expenses related to his hospital stay and treatment. Those interested can visit the fundraiser at gofundme.com/f/helping-coach-woolsey.
