20-Sept-2017 (HCS) - Monday, September 25, 2017 was established as a day to support Hoover High School alumnus Ben Abercrombie, who suffered a cervical injury in the September 16th Harvard-Rhode Island football game.  Abercrombie continues to recover after undergoing neck vertebrae surgery, according to multiple reports.  

Months of hospital expenses and physical therapy likely lie ahead for Abercrombie, a 2017 graduate of Hoover High School who was a standout student athlete for the Buccaneers in both football and baseball.  

To show support for the family, a number of Hoover-area businesses donated 10% of ALL proceeds from sales on September 25 to the Ben Abercrombie Fund.  Additionally, more than $4,000.00 was raised at the HHS football game on September 22.
