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 is currently at Shepherd Center in Atlanta where he is rehabilitating.
