We’ve all heard of the tragedy that occurred in Uvalde, Texas, last week. No need to elaborate on it here. But luckily, the Texas community is stepping up as a result. In particular, Texas Longhorns alum Kris Boyd, currently a cornerback with the Minnesota Vikings, launched a GoFundMe to assist with some of the costs associated with the tragedy.
