Rutgers Football honors Sandy victims

Posted: Updated:

Rutgers University's football team made a touchdown for Hurricane Sandy victims this spring.

The Rutgers Football team played their spring exhibition game wearing jerseys with the names of 90 shore towns affected by Hurricane Sandy on them and they also had "Jersey Strong" written on their helmets.

Kyle Flood, Rutgers head football coach, brought several shore town's jerseys to Atlantic City Friday and presented them to local mayors at the Knife and Fork Inn.

The spring game was just one way of the University is showing support for the Jersey Shore.

"What you see is houses that are in ruin, you see bulldozers and cranes collecting the pieces of people's lives and putting them in dumpsters but what you also see is the rebuilding effort, and the people of New Jersey are strong and they're tough and New Jersey will be back," said Kyle Flood.

Rutgers has raised more than $200,000 dollars for Hurricane Sandy relief.
