Tough Time For Coleman Collins

If you watched the Duke-Virginia Tech basketball game last night, you probably heard the story. Hokie center Coleman Collins’ dad is very suffering from lung cancer and has become very ill. Evidently he is not expected to make it through the weekend. Collins’ brother was at the game and the two of them were going to drive down to Atlanta afterward to be with their father. Seth Greenberg has said that Collins can stay down there as long as he needs to. Basketball can wait.
The Duke Basketball Report has a nice piece on this story, along with a good idea – send an email to Collins via the Virginia Tech athletic department. I don’t know how much help a bunch of emails from strangers can be when you lose a parent, but it certainly can’t hurt. Everyone likes to know that others support them.
