El Paso Shows Support For Bills Player Damar Hamlin
The biggest news story in the sports certainly is what happened to Buffalo Bills safety, #3 Damar Hamlin.
During the Monday Night Football game against the Cincinnati Bengals, he suffered a cardiac arrest after a hit he took from Bengals wide receiver Tee Higgins.
Now I won't be showing the hit that Damar took during the game, but I WILL show the amount of support that Damar has been receiving all over Twitter from our fellow El Pasoans.
People are have donating to his charity fundraiser & expressing their concerns on social media. And spoilers... it's A LOT.
Many El Pasoans, from both Bills fans & non-Bills fans, have come together to show their support for Damar Hamlin on online. Here's a couple that you can find on Twitter:
And yes even I put support on my own personal Twitter page.
I'm not the only one from the Q who did too; our very own Duke Keith. And so did UTEP's Aaron Jones showed their support too.
Damar Hamlin HAS even played in El Paso before; he played during the 2018 Sun Bowl game. He even joked about the weather in El Paso during the game.
And in case you're wondering, yes Damar DID have a hand in that very game.
The UTEP Athletics page and the Tony the Tiger Sun Bowl Twitter pages showed their support.
Even UTEP head coach Dana Dimel expressed his concerns after watching the game.
While this is a horrible situation, the most amazing thing is to see just how many people can come together for the same cause & purpose; to offer prayers & hope for someone who needs it. Even if you don't root for the Bills, this shows that there are SO MANY PEOPLE who care from all over the world because we know what's truly important; people's health, safety & their lives.
We want to extend our best wishes to Damar Hamlin, his family, his teammates, & everyone who was affected by what happened during Monday's game.
