STARKVILLE, Miss. -- A day after destructive tornadoes swept through the state of Mississippi, Mississippi State student-athletes from all sports responded as volunteers in the relief efforts.

MSU student-athletes, graduate assistants, athletic department staff, weight room staff and equipment staff quickly set up a tornado relief center and shelter in the parking lot of the Palmeiro Center on the MSU campus. The relief center is being coordinated by the Mississippi Emergency Management Agency.

Several Bulldog athletic teams are in the process of making plans to get involved in relief efforts at devastated areas around the state.

"No one in this state has to wonder if someone will pick them up, or who that someone will be. Mississippi picks itself up, always has and always will."
