La. Tech Players Donate Bowl Gifts to the Make-a-Wish Foundation

By Adam Kramer   Dec. 20, 2011

“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.

      Hopefully a ton of other players hear about this act of kindness and donate some of their free swag to a local charity in their hometown or university town. Kudo’s to Adrien & Quinton.

      As a graduate of TECH, this shows the character of our team, our university.

      My wife and I went to the New Mexico State (Rain Bowl) and went on the
      field after the game to congratulate the players. It was truly heart-warming
      to see the smiles on their faces.

      GO TECH beat the ‘frogs.
