Grambling State has been the center of attention after causing a stir this weekend after protesting poor funding from the school. After generating all of that national attention, major corporation Muscle Milk caught wind of the situation and decided to try to lend a hand.
Funding cuts have crippled the once-proud program, forcing the Tigers to practice and work out in decrepit facilities and travel across several states by bus to away games. The school also lacked the funding to pay for protein and other nutritional products — the players reportedly had to bring their own Gatorade — a problem the people at Muscle Milk helped remedy this week. According to ESPN’s Darren Rovell, the protein supplement company donated 384 cases of its product to the Grambling football team, enough to last the Tigers the remainder of the season. College Spun estimates the donation — 4,608 bottles of Muscle Milk in all — cost roughly $18,400.
