TEXAS SOUTHERN Football team in need of donations after relocating to Dallas

Today, Bobby Roquemore writes a story in the Dallas Morning News titled Texas Southern finds refuge, generosity in Dallas.  She tells of the TSU football teams travels caused by Hurricane Ike, which included a 40-29 win in Sacremento followed by a stay at Love Field Radisson Hotel.  The team has been practicing at Lancaster High School.

The Red Cross and Texas Southern Alumni have helped out with toilentries and supplies while Russell Athletics pitched in with some shoes.  But Roquemore reports that the rest of us have a chance to contribute as well.

TSU coach Johnnie Cole says that the team would appreciate donations to help cover costs associated with meals for this weekends contest with Texas College in the Rose City Classic in Tyler.  He estimates the costs to be $7 per person.

Donations can be dropped off at the Raddison Hotel, 1241 W. Mockinbird Lane, in the lobby until Saturday Morning.  Dallas South let’s help out the Tigers in their time of need. Texas Southern will return to Dallas to play Arkansas-Pine Bluff at the Cotton Bowl on November 29th.
