Arlington football senior Max Gray is organizing a fundraiser to benefit an Arlington middle school football player missing in the slide.

Arlington High School senior Max Gray is assembling a charity game of flash football and a barbecue at his high school on Friday, April 4 starting at 11 a.m.

The event will take place at Arlington High School in support of Jovon “Jojo” Mangual, a 13-year-old Haller Middle School seventh-grader who went missing during the Oso mudslide on March 22, along with his four other family members.

The donations will go to Mangual’s mother, Jonielle Spillers.

Gray coached Mangual over the summer and remembered the Mangual’s competitive nature, along with his love for football.

“He was the smallest kid on the team, but he had the biggest heart,” Gray said. “He would go up against anyone.”

Max has a Facebook event page set up for information, coordination and ways to help out. Online donations can be made at YouCaring.com.
