Support is pouring out in Littlefield.
"Honestly we have had so many people say we are praying for y'all and I think that is huge for us," Hobbs said.
The community lost a high school classmate, a football player, a friend.
His death is a stark reminder that one sudden decision has a big impact on everyone.
"Everybody responded, I'd be glad to do it, what else can I do," Hobbs said. "That kind of thing brought the whole community, a large part of the community together to support our students in this school."
Principal Hobbs said it is not just the Littlefield community that has stepped up, but schools all over the South Plains have been calling, offering their prayers and support.
The school kept counselors and clergy from around the city on hand to help the 373 students.
"We brought in people that we felt could offer that comfort, some understanding or at least listening to what that student had to say," Hobbs said. " I think that that particular circumstance no matter what size the school...hurts, it affects people tremendously."
It is how this community will pull together and hopefully prevent something like this from happening again.
Contact Lubbock will be at Sacred Heart Church in Littlefield tomorrow night with a presentation for students and parents on how to spot the signs of suicide.
