There are many universities facing unprecedented financial hardships. COVID has pushed these schools and, often as a result, athletic departments to the brink. My alma mater, Eastern Washington University is no different.

The Athletic Department is under a tremendous amount of cost-cutting pressure, and the football team is on the verge of extinction.

The school has done too much for me, and I have far too much Eagle Pride, to let that happen without a fight.

As such, I've banded together with fellow football letterpeople to do our part to save the Department and program.

My time at Cheney helped set my life's course. I hope the next generation gets the same opportunity.
