Gonzaga basketball player’s family home burns down

Gonzaga basketball star, Sam Dower, is back in our thoughts and prayers after his family’s home caught fire on Sunday.

Kelly Olynyk, a former Gonzaga star, current Miami Heat player, and good friend of Dower, tweeted about the sad event shortly after a gofundme was set up for the family.

Dower’s family was watching the Minnesota Vikings game when they had to rush out of their home due to the flames.

The interior of the home and the garage were completely destroyed.

As of mid-day on Tuesday, the gofundme had received $5,985 of its $10,000 goal.
