Rams Whitworth Donating His Check To Thousand Oaks Victims

It has been a devastating week in California that started with the mass shooting that occurred at the Borderline Bar & Grill in Thousand Oaks and ended with the wildfires that has burned over 75,000 acres to this point. 

Los Angeles Rams offensive tackle Andrew Whitworth has announced that he will be donating his game check from today's game vs. the Seattle Seahawks in Los Angeles Jay Glazer of the Athletic reported. Whitworth talked to Yahoo Sports this week about coming together as a community when adversity hits in your town. 

“As a group, everyone’s affected in a different way. Whether it’s the fear of having your own kids that could be involved in something like that, if it’s the fear of just being in that environment yourself or just living somewhere where something like that’s happened. “You always think it’s never going to be around you or involve you, but you always see that from people once you experience it. I think we just wanted to find a way to come together and really just wrap our arms around the community that we live in and that we operate and work in.”

The Rams will honor the shooting victims before today's Rams vs. Seahawks game in Los Angeles.
