Texas Tech Football Volunteers to Help in Tornado-Ravaged Area

Robert Snyder, KFYO.com

The Texas Tech football team will head to the Dallas/Fort Worth area which was ravaged by tornadoes earlier in the week.

Volunteers from the Texas Tech football team are joining Head Coach Tommy Tuberville in a Saturday day trip to Lancaster, Texas to help deliver supplies and aid relief organizations in the cleanup.

Friday afternoon, people across the Lubbock community had donated enough supplies to completely fill the Red Raider football 18-wheeler trailer, and the group had begun to fill the Goin’ Band’s trailer as well.

Blayne Beal, Texas Tech’s associate athletics director of communications said “Once again, we were reminded today of why it’s great to be a Red Raider and why it’s great to live in this community.”

About 30 student-athletes are going to the area to help.

“We felt like this was the right thing to do as a football program and a university,” said Tuberville. “Going down there and volunteering our time and providing aid is the least we can do for a community that has given so much to Texas Tech for so many years.”

The team will arrive in Lancaster around noon on Saturday.
