Marion teen misses bowling banquet, teammates bring banquet to him

CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -

When teammates learned Kaleb Foye wouldn't be able to make his team's bowling banquet they decided to surprise him.

"It makes me feel pretty good," said Foye. "I've been in here for like four days. Only been able to see some people.

The 16-year-old is a sophomore at Linn-Mar High School. He had problems breathing at the bowling alley last week, so his mom took him to St. Luke's Hospital.

"My mom made me come here," said Foye as his friends laughed. "I don't like to be in here for a long time."

Doctors told Foye he had a collapsed lung. He's since had surgery to fix it, and is doing well. The bowling team wanted to help cheer him up.

"It's not fun being in hospitals," said Andy Diercks, Linn-Mar Boys Bowling Coach. "I've spent enough time with other people in hospitals in my life and I wanted to make sure that he had a little bit to smile about."

To help him smile, the team presented Foye with a special award. The seniors nominated Foye for Teammate of the Year. It's the first time the award has been given.

"He comes out to everything, whether he's bowling or not," said Dreyson Robe, a senior at Linn-Mar. "I just think that's really cool for a teammate to do.

So the bowlers came to the hospital to the support the teammate who's always supporting them.
