According to a tweet by a former teammate and friend, Kendrick Moeai is in need of some help. The former University of Utah football player and his wife, Megan, had twin babies at only 30 weeks along. The babies are growing but the cost of being in the NICU for eight weeks and counting is adding up.

The tweet has been retweeted by both Utah and BYU football fans and athletes. The sports world always has a way of coming together when needed the most. Moeai and Jake Murphy played football together at Utah in 2010-2012.

With the election results in, the sports world reacted to the new president-elect, Donald Trump.

Some athletes weren’t happy with the result.

Some talked about coming together and being united.
