Jimbo Fisher joins call to help flood-ravaged West Virginia

Earlier this week, Alabama head coach Nick Saban released a statement asking high schools across the state to help West Virginia high school football programs as they may not be able to take the field this fall without assistance from the flooding.

Florida State head coach Jimbo Fisher is now asking the same of his state.

On Friday, he wrote a letter asking high school teams in Florida to help donate to West Virginia football programs so they will be able to play this fall. The Clarksburg, West Virginia native is certainly going to do all he can to help his homestate.

“We have all seen how athletics can help heal and rebuild communities that have suffered through a tragedy,” Fisher wrote. “Thank you so much for your help and anything you can do to assist high school football programs in West Virginia.”

Fisher, Saban and Florida State assistant Rick Trickett of Masontown, West Virginia, are all in Clay County today, helping with the flood relief. It is hard to believe that the state wouldn’t be able to get back on their feet after this terrible string of events over the last month.
