“They’re just material things. They need it more than I do.”
These were the wonderful words of Louisiana Tech linebacker Adrien Cole who, along with La. Tech wideout Quinton Patton, decided to donate their San Diego County Credit Union Poinsettia Bowl gifts to the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
Each player donated their Best Buy gift cards ($300 value), while Cole also donated his Tourneau watch ($97 value) that he received as well. La Tech will take on TCU in the Poinsettia Bowl Wednesday night.
Although 2011 has certainly been a rough year for the sport in many ways, this is something that deserves to be celebrated. Kudos to both of these young men for doing something meaningful and truly outstanding.
