Louisiana Tech Players Give Bowl Gifts to Make-A-Wish Foundation Kids

Dec. 19, 2011

SAN DIEGO - A group of Louisiana Tech players took their community service event to another level Monday as they gave their bowl gifts to kids involved in the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

Wide receiver Quinton Patton and linebacker Adrien Cole both donated their Best Buy gift cards (a $300 value) and Cole gave his Tourneau Poinsettia Bowl watch (a $97 value) during the Poinsettia Bowl's Make-A-Wish Foundation event.

"They're just material things," Cole said. "They need it more than I do."

Players from both Louisiana Tech and TCU were attending the community service event in San Diego as a part of the events leading up to the San Diego County Credit Union Poinsettia Bowl on Dec. 21.

A representative for the bowl said that he could not recall any player ever doing that in the history of the bowl.
