CSU Men’s Hoops Head Coach Helps Send Rams Super-Fans To Vegas
There is no denying the passion and love that Niko Medved, the head coach of the Colorado State men's basketball team has for his team, for basketball, and for CSU - but he's just taken his passion and love for the Rams to another level.
Over the weekend, a group of Colorado State students better known as the "Outlaws of Moby" created and shared a GoFundMe in an effort to raise enough money for the group of Rams super-fans to attend the 2022 Mountain West Men's Basketball Tournament in Las Vegas, NV this March.
According to the fundraiser page, the group sought to raise $1,500 beginning Sunday, Feb. 13.
While there were dozens of generous supporters of the group of super-fans who donated to their GoFundMe, there was one extra-special donation that stood out to both the Outlaws and the Colorado State community the most (and rightfully so).
Within less than 24 hours of the GoFundMe going live, CSU head coach Niko Medved and his wife, Erica caught wind of the fundraiser and donated $900 towards it, ultimately pushing the Outlaws over their $1,500 goal.
As the Coloradoan's Kevin Lytle said in a tweet regarding the incredible gesture from the Medved's on Sunday night, you truly don't see - or hear - about this type of thing often.
I think it's safe to say the Outlaws of Moby (@OutlawsofMoby on Twitter) were ecstatic to not only reach their $1500 goal but to have it exceeded all thanks to the one guy the group of super-fans might have a bigger crush on than fellow CSU student and star player, David Roddy (especially now).
