Arkansas college football player Jesse Boshears fighting for his life against COVID-19

Arkansas Tech offensive lineman Jesse Boshears needs prayers. He is on a ventilator fighting for his life against COVID.

Former Central Arkansas offensive lineman Jesse Boshears need our prayers tonight, because he is currently fighting for his life against COVID.

The Perryville, Arkansas native recently transferred to Arkansas Tech, but since June has been fighting for his life. He entered the hospital with COVID-19 back in June. For weeks, he’s been on a ventilator. He’s also on an ECMO machine, a temporary life support system.

We at NFL Draft Diamonds would like to send prayers to the Boshears family.

According to a GoFundMe page for Jesse and his fiancé, Jesse was diagnosed with Covid (Delta Variant) on June 29th and was admitted to UAMS. He was released on July 2nd and was taken to Baptist Health in Little Rock Arkansas on July 3rd. He is currently on the vent and ECMO machine. At this time there is no timeframe of when he will be out, but we do know it will be a long process.
