Seminole Phil Cofer’s father passed away the day of FSU’s first round win over Vermont.
Cofer’s father Mike, a former NFL linebacker, succumbed to a lengthy illness at the age of 58. Since then, Cofer has started a Go Fund Me Page for his father’s funeral and medical expenses, and he’s received $45,000 in donations already.
The outpouring of financial and emotional support has been amazing for Cofer and his family. He posted an emotional thank you message on Twitter Sunday.
Florida State will be back in action this Thursday against Gonzaga. It will be the second year in a row the two programs have met in the Sweet 16.
