Everett, an OU senior defensive back, was back home in Philadelphia through the devastating tornadoes that ripped through Oklahoma earlier this week.
“Everyone was asking if I was still in Oklahoma,” Everett said. “It was kinda wearing on me. I know a lot of friends that I’ve met in Oklahoma. It’s a big deal. I just want people to know that people not just in Oklahoma care. I care, and a lot of the people in Philadelphia care.”
Everett contacted the Community Service Corps at his high school — Philadelphia’s Roman Catholic High — about organizing a relief effort for people in Oklahoma affected by the storms. He started spreading the word for “Kass Everett Oklahoma Relief” on social media sites like Twitter and Facebook. (The Oklahoman)
