Mississippi State to wear jerseys Saturday to benefit on-campus disabilities center
The T.K. Martin Center is held in special regard at Mississippi State for its support of children with disabilities.
This Saturday against Abilene Christian, the football team will debut a special uniform inspired by the incredible children and selfless staff of the T.K. Martin Center, the program announced. All proceeds of the jersey sales will be given back to the T.K. Martin Center.
Leah Beasley, associate athletics director for external affairs at MSU, said Adidas approached the program a couple years ago about designing a jersey to support an organization that promotes generosity, hospitality and selflessness. Beasley said officials immediately thought of the T.K. Martin Center as something that student-athletes are a part of and drives that spirit on campus.
The center is designed to help people achieve educational and vocational goals and improve their quality of life.
S Brian Cole shared what it’s been like for him to visit the center.
“It just feels good to be around these kids and see a smile on their face and play with them a little bit, we’d want to do that every day,” he said. “It’s just a blessing.”
