Earlier this year, San Jose State University running backs coach Alonzo Carter went viral. He had once been a backup dancer for MC Hammer and showed off those moves at a team practice.
Ellen DeGeneres saw the video and got word of Coach Zo’s charitable contributions through ‘Beyond Football’. After hearing about the good the team does in the community, she announced that her & Cheerios were teaming up to give the school $25,000.
This helps ease the pain of the team’s 1-4 start to the season.
