Rattler Football Partakes in Post-Hurricane Relief Efforts (220 hits)



FAMU head football coach Willie Simmons, fresh off of one of the biggest victories in recent history, immediately turned his attention to the devastation caused by hurricane Michael in the Florida Panhandle. Partnering with FAMU, the FAMU National Alumni Association and FAMU Athletics, Simmons dispersed players to two locations to provide relief, just 24 hours after the signature win in Greensboro, NC. Simmons took players to Havana, Fla., to provide meals and water on highway 27.

The second crew went with FAMU Associate Athletics Director, Vaughn Wilson, to Marianna, Fla. to provide relief in conjunction with the Jackson County Chapter of the FAMU National Alumni Association. Col. Gregory Clark, President of the FAMU National Alumni Association, conceived and funded the supplies to assist not only chapter members, but people in Marianna in general.

These efforts are the initial efforts from the university under the FAMU Cares initiative. More relief efforts for the Florida Panhandle are being currently in the developmental stages.
