The Tarleton State family needs your help

The 1977-1978 Tarleton State Football Team Members and Coaches are trying to help a former teamate, Tony Tuck, who is critically ill.

Tony was working for a private security company in Afghanistan and contracted Typhoid Fever, which resulted in a stroke. This left the former All American Defensive End paralyzed on one side of his body. Tony is unable to walk or talk and has to be fed with a feeding tube.

The company that Tony was working for had no medical insurance for him and this has not only affected Tony physically, but has also affected his family financially.

Former players and friends can make a financial contribution to the following...
Tony Tuck Benefit Account
Town and Country Bank
PO Box 1157
Stephenville Texas 76401
Acct # 5131610
Routing #111907555.

I appeal to all former players, students, alumni, and supporters. Please find it in your heart to help Tony and his family. Tony was not only a brother when we went through a lot to turn around TSU football, but also working for his country when he became ill. If anyone ever deserved our support it is Tony. Please help!
