I read somewhere that his family lost a lot because of lightning. Does anyone know a way we could help them?
3-2-1 TOUCHDOWN FSU
Care to explain?
Three W's In My Life: Ward, Weinke, and Winston
One of FSU's football players family lost their home and vehicles last week to a lightning strike here in Tallahassee. The Gehres family lost their home, cars, clothes, pictures and countless memories but fortunately they still have each other. To make matters worse, I'm told thieves came in and stole their appliances. While Josh is out of the house at FSU, his mother, father and his siblings are displaced. It doesn't matter that he plays for FSU as this is about a local family in need. They need your help. Time to start rolling those quarters and opening up your check books

Did a tree(s) fall? Fire?
I'd be careful, we would be giving benefits because he is an FSU player. NCAA would come down on us like a hammer. It sucks, but the NCAA doesn't care about helping, just making sure they look stern
Thats what I was thinking about, the NCAA will let the Miami thing disappear but would hammer boosters helping a athletes family suffering from a natural disaster. That is just the way they roll.
I was asking if there was a site or donation set up for the family. I would never want to jeopardize the University or be on the ESPN Bottomline for benefits or anything like that. I would like to help but the way we can and not break any rules.
Could you offer a little more insight, please. This thread is very vague.
what part of "I'd like to know a NCAA approved way of helping the displaced family of a Nole" aren't you getting? Did you read the thread?
I'm talking about the incident, which was pretty clear in my initial post.
Your tone was quite unnecessary. I'll never understand why people act like jacknuts on forums.
Excuse me for getting the background story before I donate money to a cause.
I felt like I was polite with my request.

More info should be coming out tomorrow from Josh's Dad.
My original post about the incident came from a trusted friends Facebook status who knows a lot of people at FSU
i would think something like that should be fully covered under a homeowners insurance policy.
