Good news you may not have heard.

A great story about the Temple Owls…

Temple has shown up a lot in the futility items in this column this year, so it feels good to have something nice to write about the Owls this week. Before their game against Clemson Oct. 12, Temple’s players voted unanimously to donate their per diem checks, $1,500 in all, to the Fahmarr McElrathbey Trust Fund.Fahmarr is the younger brother of Clemson’s Ray-Ray McElrathbey. As you may have heard, Ray-Ray took temporary custody of his 11-year-old brother this summer to get him out of the house of their mother, who is struggling with drug addiction. The NCAA has allowed Ray-Ray to accept donations to a fund for his brother’s care. Classy move by Al Golden’s kids to make the donation.

A wonderful sportsmanship and humantarian story from a college football team. Sad that this story comes at the end of a long article. You’d think that ESPN would highlight this story a bit more in light of the other college football story we’ve all been hearing about lately.
