Rivals Unite on the Field to Show Support for Injured Player


Football players from The Woodlands Highlanders and the Klein Collins Tigers came together after Klein Collins guard Michael Alexander suffered a dislocated ankle.

The two teams came together to surround him and pray, showing a united front during a critical event.

After the game, Alexander tweeted that he was doing well and thanked everyone for their support.

Klein Collins finished the game with a win of 21-17 and succeeded in ending the 39-game district winning streak for The Woodlands Highlanders.

Alexander expressed his gratitude during an interview with ABC13 News stating that, “[The teams praying for me] showed me a lot and meant a lot to me because…there was so much going through my head and to know that they were by my side helped me fight and continue to fight in the hospital.”

Moments like these positively impact our students and aid in molding them as leaders of our future. Klein ISD is proud of all the students involved, as well as The Woodlands Highlanders, for showing exemplary sportsmanship and setting an example for athletes everywhere.
