As Brian Sarver begins his road to recovery, he has an entire community cheering him on.
“He’s trying to be as mobile as possible so that he can heal as quickly as possible,” said The River Church pastor, the Rev. Brad Mitchell.
Mitchell has known Sarver eight years through church and is one of the many people rooting for him as he continues to recover.

“He’s a good man,” Mitchell said. “A man of integrity. He’s got a lot of strength, inner strength and determination, but it’s all packed into a very peaceful, kind personality.”
Sarver is an assistant coach for the Lebanon Warriors fourth-grade football team.
The players, which include Sarver’s twin boys, have stickers on their helmets in his honor, while the cheerleaders have ribbons.

Guerra said he’s grateful that Sarver is home and healing.
“He’s doing better,” Guerra said. “He’s sore. Still having trouble sleeping.”
