I really love sports stories like these, and quite frankly we don’t hear enough about the good things so many althletes do for their communities and for those in need. Here is a perfect example:
Cleveland Browns’ wide receiver and Clemson alum Chansi Stuckey plans to donate $10 for every point that the Clemson men’s basketball team scores against Duke this weekend to the Red Cross for Haitian relief.
The #16 ranked Clemson Tigers will host the #6 ranked Duke Blue Devils at Little John Coliseum on Saturday night at 9:05 pm ET. The game is being featured as part of ESPN’s College Game Day Series.
“My heart goes out to the people of Haiti right now,” says Stuckey. “I can’t imagine the devastation that they are facing. I hope things get much better for them very soon.”
Stuckey graduated from Clemson in 2006 after a stellar career in which he became the first Clemson player since the forties to score a Touchdown via pass, rush, punt return and reception and first since 1971 to earn All-ACC honors in consecutive seasons. He was also the first player in Clemson history to post consecutive games with multiple touchdown receptions.
