SMU quarterback Shane Buechele has helped raise a ton of money to win the war against coronavirus.

According to Sam Blum, the university announced late Tuesday that the team’s starting passer had raised $50,000 in relief during the pandemic through a GoFundMe. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

The money will be delivered to the Dallas mayor Thursday.

Good for Buechele for stepping up and helping people in need during the crisis. As the quarterback of SMU, he has a huge platform.

We need all the help we can get during the coronavirus pandemic and a major D1 quarterback joining the fight is never a bad thing.
