NASHVILLE --- The Tennessee State football team will open camp for the 2016 season in one week. The coaching staff and many of the players in town took the time on Tuesday evening to help give back to the community.
The Tigers assisted with The Bridge Ministry of Tennessee in helping feed the homeless. Players and coaches joined other volunteers to unload donated food from the supply truck and helped with serving.
“It’s great to come out and give back to the community,” said Head Coach Rod Reed. “This was an idea that coach (Jeff) Parker recommended after he and his family came out to help a couple weeks ago. I thought it would be great for our kids to come out. We take a lot of things for granted and this kind of puts things back in prospective.”
“I was really excited when they brought it up,” said junior linebacker Chris Collins. “It was very important that we came out here as a team to feed the homeless. I thought it would be a big help to the community. I think everybody on the team enjoyed doing it, we were working hard and it was all out of care.”
