Former Gator football player fighting for his life

By  | 

GAINESVILLE, Fla. (WCJB)-- Family members of Neiron Ball, a Gator graduate and former player for the Oakland Raiders, have asked for the public’s help.

While at the University of Florida, Ball was diagnosed with a condition that causes the brain’s blood vessels to rupture.

In 2018, he suffered an aneurysm and was put in a medically-induced coma. He is now paralyzed and living in a nursing home.

A GoFundMe page has been set up by Ball’s family to pay for medical expense.

It has already reached its $50,000 goal, however, the family encourages people to continue to donate here.
