Bigger Than Sports
Tomorrow several FSU Football players will be beginning a community service project with the Springfield Boys and Girls Club of Tallahassee.
Two weeks ago, Rising Spear announced that the Garnet Spirit side of Rising Spear would be a non-for-profit platform creating opportunities to engage FSU student-athletes through appearance fees, clinics, fundraising, community service projects and events supporting underserved communities.
The Project, The Players, The Plan
Double Fries No Slaw has been told that the inaugural event will be attended by Camren McDonald, Keyshawn Helton, Amari Gainer, Jammie Robinson, Jared Verse, and potentially a few other players from the football team. Also, three Florida State Cheerleaders will also be in attendance.
“Tomorrow will be a meet and greet with the kids. Just get to know them, tell the kids about themselves, and throw the football around,” Bob Davis, Co-Founder of Rising Spear told us. “Beginning next week there will be a more formal agenda that is put together by the Boys & Girls Club.”
The Greater Good
This is not the first time we’ve seen FSU Athletes use their NIL platforms to help those less fortunate. Most are familiar with the efforts of Dillan Gibbons with his charity, Big Man Big Heart. His #TakeTimothyToTally campaign was incredible successful. He, among others, also made a huge impact with their Christmas Shopping Spree.
You can support Dillan’s charity by visiting his website here: BigManBigHeart.com.
Mike Norvell compared Dillan’s act of service to the late, great Bobby Bowden when we asked him about the service of his incoming transfer OL last year. We wrote about his thoughts here.
