Please pray for this young man's family! God has the plan, but I pray his mother and father's peace!
I'm hearing reports that Colton has passed.
Valdosta High freshman baseball player Colton Shaw is on life support this morning after a freak accident Wednesday night.
Shaw, who was struck in the head by an errant throw in between innings of the Wildcats' junior varsity game in Moultrie, was life-flighted to Tallahassee Memorial Hospital where he is listed in critical condition, according to a hospital spokesperson.
Valdosta High athletic director Rance Gillespie said the entire Wildcat community, but especially the Shaw family and the VHS baseball program, we're grieving.
"It’s a terrible tragedy," Gillespie said. "Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Shaw family.
"We really appreciate the thoughts and prayers from the entire community."
Valdosta High School is offering grief counseling for students today, and the VHS chapter of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes held a prayer vigil for Shaw on campus this morning, according to Jennifer Steedley with Valdosta City Schools
Superintendent Martin Roesch, Vice Principal Gary Glover and head baseball coach Bart Shuman are travelling to Tallahassee to visit with Shaw and his family, according to Steedley.
“Our thoughts and our prayer with Colton and his family and the entire Valdosta City Schools family because this has affected all of his. It’s truly devastating,” said Steedley.
