Former players rally in support of Joe Helms


Football coach Joe Helms was diagnosed with cancer earlier this year, and now some of his former players are rallying together to help.

Helms is currently undergoing chemotherapy to fight colon cancer. One of his former players out of Dell City has started a GoFundMe page to help with the costs of treatment.

“Coach Helms is amazing man that has helped many but now it is our turn to show our appreciation and support to such an amazing man and help him and his family,” former player Adrian Cadena write on the page.

Helms is currently the coach at Grandfalls-Royalty, but has spent time with Dell City, Dawson, Grady, Bryson and New Home.
