Union alum transferred to Atlanta facility

ST. CHARLES, Mo. — A Lindenwood University football player has been transferred to a facility in Atlanta for treatment of a spinal cord injury suffered in a game last month.

Freshman cornerback Sterling Thomas, a former standout at Union High School, was hurt Oct. 27 in Lindenwood’s 45-30 win over Missouri Southern. The game was played on the Lindenwood campus in the St. Louis suburb of St. Charles.

Full details about the injury have not been disclosed.

Thomas was transferred from a suburban St. Louis hospital to Shepherd Center’s Spinal Cord Injury Program on Monday. The center says he will begin a rigorous rehabilitation program under the guidance of medical and rehab specialists.

Thomas is 18 and is from Broken Arrow.
