Virginia Tech Rallying Around Former Player

Virginia Tech is rallying around a former player who is currently fighting for his life. Michael Maggiore was a four year member of the Virginia Tech Rugby Football Club but three years ago was in a terrible accident at his company's job site at a rail yard. Miraculously he has survived but has undergone a total of 46 surgeries and received 102 pints of blood.

Mike and his family are in a serious financial bind and are looking for support. They've set up a YouCaring site for those that wish to donate. Towards the end of his college days, Mike began to participate in Strongman competitions, often competing in competitions up and down the east coast.  Following graduation, Mike remained an ardent supporter of the Virginia Tech rugby team and supported mens teams in the Washington Metro DC area.
