A high school athlete raises over $13,000 for a best friend who was paralyzed playing football

San Miguel said that he was the only person he talked to about nearly everything I had in my head," CBS News reported.

Standout athletes were the best of friends. Sloan suffered a head injury while playing football 18 months ago. This led to brain-stem trauma. His mother claimed that he couldn’t move his arms and legs.

"The rest is fine in his brain. Jasmine Jamieson Sloan's mother told CBS News that Sloan's balance and coordination were completely off.

The 16-year old is determined to get back into sports and attends rehab six days per week.

San Miguel stated, "It was very difficult to see my best friend as that."

He started a pledge drive to support his friend's family. Every time he takes a court charge, supporters donate.

He said, "I wanted to do everything I could to help." He would have done the same for me.

San Miguel has already raised over $13,000 for his best friend.

Jamieson stated, "I don’t know if I will ever be capable of really thanking him." Jamieson said, "I will continue to try for the rest my life."
