michael's story


Michael Doherty is a Junior at St. Paul’s where he is a defensive back on the football team.  On November 11, 2016, during a St. Paul’s playoff game against Archbishop Shaw High School, Michael’s life was changed forever. During a run back from an interception, Michael collided with another player and fractured his C5 vertebrae which left him paralyzed. He traveled to the Shepherd Center in Atlanta for rehabilitation and is now back home continuing his therapy.


The Mighty Michael's 36 Slam was a fund raiser to benefit Michael Doherty.   Pelican Athletic Club proudly hosted the 4 day tournament beginning on Thursday, March 9th through Sunday, March 12.  This tournament was a way for the entire community to come together and help support Michael’s efforts to walk again.

On behalf of Michael, Lisa and David, please accept our sincere appreciation for your time and consideration in participating in this joyful event.
