Leesburg -- A 14 year old Lee County boy is partially paralyzed tonight following an A.T.V. Crash Sunday.  His classmates and teachers spent the day praying for his recovery.  

 Michael Fowler, an eighth grader at Lee County Middle School, suffered lower back injuries when he crashed an A.T.V. into a ditch while riding near New York Road. He had surgery Sunday.

 Monday his classmates made cards and posters to send Michael to help in his recovery. Classmate Drew Durden said "pretty sad. A lot of people crying and hugging. Not a real good active day today."

 Teacher Debbie Hinman said "he's awake and he's communicating with everybody. He asked for a Mountain Dew yesterday. He's in good spirits and has a positive attitude, so that is what's really wonderful."  

 Michael Fowler was a pitcher on the Lee County World Series Champion baseball team in 2005.  He also played football for Lee County Middle School.    Family members say he was wearing his helmet when he crashed.
