South Carolina QB Ryan Hilinski shares effort to help those in need during coronavirus outbreak
With spring football on hold due to the coronavirus outbreak, South Carolina QB Ryan Hilinski has shifted his focus to helping others affected by the situation.
On Sunday, Hilinski shared that he is making “food bags for anyone that needs any help during this time.” He tweeted a photo of spare food he had gathered and told his Twitter followers that they could reach out via direct message to join the effort:
Gathered all the spare food that I had and decided to make food bags for anyone that needs any help during this time! Feel free to reach out and DM me if you need or want to join me helping others!
If you want to go fast, go alone.
If you want to go far, go together! ❤️ pic.twitter.com/sYRzLx6Vfr

Gamecock fans are certainly not surprised that the Hilinski family is thinking of others during a trying time for everyone.
