Earlier this month, Northwestern Oklahoma State University Ranger soccer player, Jordan Click, was severely injured in a one vehicle rollover accident on Interstate 35 near Blackwell.
Click, a freshman from Abilene, Tex., suffered injuries to her vertebrae in which her C4, C5 and C6 vertebrae were fractured, have been reconstructed, and since fused. For the time being, she has limited feeling and sensation and is on a ventilator.
Jordan has been at the Oklahoma University Medical Center in Oklahoma City since April 10. Cards and any other form of encouragement can be sent to her at the Presbyterian Tower East of the OU Medical Center in the Critical Care Wing Room 2024.
“As an individual, as a coach and as a team, you can never be prepared for a tragedy of this magnitude,” remarked Ranger soccer coach Steve Barrows. “Visitation has been tightly controlled and the players went through a stretch of 10 days not being able to see her. Her family and the Northwestern family has had an outpouring of love, support and prayer on Jordan’s behalf. As the weeks and months unfold, I ask that everyone please keep her in your prayers. “
Click has recently been accepted to Craig Hospital in Denver, Colo., a facility that specializes in spinal cord injuries. Within the next two weeks, she will receive a medical flight to Denver.
Barrows has established a “Jordan Click Love Fund” with Community Bank in Alva. Anyone who wishes to donate to this fund can contact Community Bank at (580) 327-5500 or at 1729 College Blvd. Alva, Okla., contact Barrows at (580) 327-8103 or any member of the Ranger soccer team.
Jordan is currently at Craig Hospital in Denver, Colo. She can be reached at:
