Morgantown, West Virginia – When Damar Hamlin collapsed to the ground after tackling Tee Higgins in last night’s Monday Night Football game, all thoughts of rivalries and hatred towards Pitt went out the window.
This is more than football. This is more than a rivalry.
Hamlin, 24, is in critical condition after suffering cardiac arrest on the field last night. He was a star safety for the Pitt Panthers two years ago. He was drafted in the 6th round and has been an outstanding teammate and member of the community in Buffalo as a player for the Buffalo Bills.
Although there have been no updates yet this morning, it’s important that everyone – including Mountaineer Nation – keep Hamlin and his family in our thoughts and prayers. We’re all Pitt and Damar Hamlin fans today.
