Read below for more about Louis Wood, as written by Barrett Lawlis, in the following article published in the Newark Advocate on January 2, 2016,
"Louis Wood is a Granville High School sophomore and member of the soccer team. He was in a car crash in September that caused severe brain damage and hindered use of his right side. Since the accident, Wood has had the support of his family and close friends as he works to recuperate.
'The response from the community has just been incredible,' Lou's father Adrian Wood said. 'The insurance doesn't always cover what we need for his therapy, so we've been relying on the people and fundraisers.'"
