A favorite subject of this blog is sharing the various causes embraced by former #UVABase and currently Oakland A’s pitcher Sean Doolittle. This weekend, the New York Times profiled the many charitable works of @whatwouldDOOdo and his girlfriend Eireann Dolan.
#HoosCare Part II
Former #UVAFH player Rachel Jennings is currently working with #Floating Doctors, a group whose mission includes providing free, acute and preventative health care services and delivering donated medical supplies to isolated areas. Jennings spent last week working in a clinic in northern Panama where she has cared for more than 200 women. Jennings journey to the clinic was a five-day walk through the mountains to get to the remote area.
Ed Block Courage Award
Former #UVAFB standout and current Washington Redskin Morgan Moses was named a recipient of the Ed Block Courage Award,Â which is given annually to a player from each National Football League team who displays extraordinary courage in the face of adversity. After suffering a Lisfranc injury in his foot during a practice at the tail end of his rookie season, his teammates voted him to receive this year’s honor.
Virginia track and field standout Henry Wynne won the Cavaliers’ first NCAA title in the men’s mile Saturday in Birmingham, Ala. In a post-race interview with FloTrack, Wynne talks about how it was a “dream come true.”
House Resolution No. 262
Not only has #UVAMBB All-American Malcolm Brogdon loaded up on hardware this awards season, as detailed in this great profile from the Washington Post, he now has an impressive piece of legislation bearing his name as the Virginia House of Delegates offered up this resolution “commending Malcolm Moses Brogdon.“
