BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Sixteen-year-old Avery Barnes was struck by a car and received a very nice video clip of support from several members of the UCF Knights football team.

Through no fault of her own, Avery was involved in a horrific accident on July 22, 2020, and is currently at the Shepherd Center in Atlanta, Georgia, undergoing extensive rehabilitation.

Offensive lineman Parker Boudreaux of the Knights was the one who spearheaded the endeavor in which a number of his teammates offered their prayers and support for Avery.

Avery Barnes was involved in a horrific accident on July 22, 2020, and is currently at the Shepherd Center in Atlanta, Georgia, undergoing extensive rehabilitation.

It is no surprise the Knight’s jumped on board, because, not only is Avery’s mom, Kerri, a UCF graduate but Avery’s best friend Maddy Boudreaux, is Parker’s sister.

When asked how she felt seeing the video for the first time, Avery said I was “shocked” and felt “really good.”

Avery was looking forward to her junior year at Bishop Moore Catholic High School. She is on the cheerleading team; both the comp team and sideline team.

Last year the Hornets brought home a state championship, and have won multiple state titles over the years.

The summer was moving right along, school would be here before you know it, and then, fate stepped in. Avery’s world was turned upside down. She now had to do things she never thought she would have to do.

To date, Avery has undergone nine surgeries. She spent four days in Pediatric ICU at Arnold Palmer Hospital, 10 days in ICU at Orlando Regional Medical Center, and 14 days in burn/trauma step-down.

Avery was then moved to the Shepherd Center to begin rehabilitation.

The support Avery has received has been nothing short of amazing! There have been a number of prayer vigils, fundraisers, texts, emails, letters, etc., all in support of Avery.

Avery’s mom, Kerri Barnes, said, “We continue to be amazed daily by the abundance of support from people near and far; some close and many total strangers. We are blessed through each and every prayer, donation and word of kindness.”

She went on to say that, “every single one of you who has reached out, shared your time or resources are our heroes. There aren’t enough thank you’s in the world to truly articulate our appreciation.”

Long-term prognosis is good for Avery. With the fight and determination she has shown; the continued support of family, friends and others; there is no doubt that Avery Barnes will exceed all expectations. She will be back on the Bishop Moore cheerleading team before you know it.
