AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW/WAGT) -- Kyle Frazier is a senior at Glenn Hills High School. He played for the football team and recently signed-on to play college football at Savannah State University. Then, weeks before he was set to join the Tigers in Savannah, Kyle learned he had been diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma with Nodular Sclerosis, a form of cancer.
While his scholarship is not in jeopardy, Kyle is fighting for his life, undergoing weeks of cancer treatments.
His high school, Glenn Hills, was set to play against Aquinas in a spring game a week after News 12 first aired a story about Kyle's fight. Players and their families decided they wanted to help. They began fundraising on Facebook, and through cash/Venmo donations.
After a week of doing so, the Fighting Irish honored Kyle after the coin toss and presented his family with a check for $5800.
Kyle's mom, Kenya, is almost speechless at the community's generosity.
"This truly has blessed us," said Kenya James, Kyle's mom. "It's also a blessing to so many people who support Kyle. To hear what kind of young man he is and the kind of young man that I've raised. I'm super proud of him, and I thank everyone."

He's set to join the Savannah State Tigers in January.
