ESU Football Player Aids Injured Exchange Student

 community hornetsEmporia State University football player Justin Wilson says he was grateful when the school's athletic department set up a fund to assist him and his family in their time of need. School spokeswoman Gwen Larson says Justin's family in Oklahoma faced a terrible loss last year:

Last Friday, Wilson paid that good deed forward, by giving the fund's remaining $1,000 to a fellow student. Yali Huang (Ya-Lee Wung) is a Chinese exchange student who was left with a severe brain injury after being hit by a vehicle last November while crossing a street.  She flew back to China on Sunday to begin her rehabilitation. Justin Wilson says he doesn't want all the credit: 

Larson says the ESU community has been able to raise around $25,000 for Huang and her family.
