Rams’ Andrew Whitworth To Donate Paycheck To Thousand Oaks Shooting Victims

Los Angeles left tackle Andrew Whitworth will donate his game check from this week’s game against the Seattle Seahawks to victims and the families of this week’s shooting in Thousand Oaks, Ca.

One game check from Whitworth is worth roughly $60,000.

Whitworth, who is a residence of Thousand Oaks told Yahoo Sports:

“As a group, everyone’s affected in a different way. Whether it’s the fear of having your own kids that could be involved in something like that, if it’s the fear of just being in that environment yourself or just living somewhere where something like that’s happened.”

“You always think it’s never going to be around you or involve you, but you always see that from people once you experience it. I think we just wanted to find a way to come together and really just wrap our arms around the community that we live in and that we operate and work in.”

The team will also conduct a moment of silence before Sunday’s game at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum.
