HARRISVILLE, W.Va. (WTAP) - Football players from around West Virginia and Ohio collected donations and showed support for Alex Miller's family and for his teammates at Roane County High School.

Alex Miller, a wide receiver for Roane County High School, collapsed during a game Friday night at Clay County and later passed away.

Since then, players from across the region have been showing support for Miller's team, his family and the community.

Players from Parkersburg South, Belpre, Ritchie County, St. Marys and Williamstown helped collect donations for Miller's family in Ritchie County.

They lined the roads wearing their jerseys and holding signs in support of the Raiders.

The players ended up raising more than $7,600.

Players across West Virginia are being asked on Tuesday to wear maroon and silver in honor of Miller and the Roane County Raiders.
