CINCINNATI -- Ryan Custer tearfully thanked the community for their support at his prayer service Sunday.

I cant thank you guys enough, he said in front of a standing ovation at Elder High Schools Fieldhouse.

Custer, an Elder grad and Wright State freshman, suffered a traumatic spinal injury at a large party in April after he tried to jump into a shallow, makeshift pool.

Family and friends welcomed Custer home on Wednesday. He had been been recovering and undergoing therapy at University of Cincinnati Medical Center. He also traveled to Chicago to be considered for a stem cell study at Rush University.

Doctors injected 20 million stem cells into Custers neck, and HBO has been following his progress.

Ryans brother, Nick Custer, thanked the West Side community for being so uplifting to his family.

It means the world to us. It just shows you what a special kid Ryan is as a 19-year-old kid going through this, its just overwhelming support, he said.

Nick said Ryan will continue rehabilitation in Cincinnati, and he said Ryan is looking forward to the start of Wright States season.

Ryan wants to get back to the team as soon as possible, and they all want him to come back and help however he can. He misses them, definitely, Nick said.
