As many of you are aware, Larry Blustein, has been suffering with a severe case of Covid. (As of today Larry is finally home). With everyone’s prayers Larry will hopefully get through this and will be back on the sidelines and in the studio making a difference as he has done for thousands of high school athletes for the last 40 years. Larry and his wife are very private people when it comes to their personal lives and have a difficult time asking for help. When Larry is finally able to come home he will need a lot of medical assistance and home care of which insurance will cover very little. His hospital bills are mounting up and now is the time for all of us to say thank you for all that he has done for so many.
For those of you that don’t know me, Larry and I have known each other, here in South Florida, for over forty years. I was a football and basketball coach at Coral Gables High and then spent 25 years as the school’s athletic director. I am currently The Director of Outreach and Development for the FBI Citizens Academy Alumni Association. Larry and I are currently involved with the Orange Bowl Football Showcase and a documentary that is about the history of Dade County High School Football.
I want to assure everyone that every penny donated, minus the Go Fund Me fees, will be put directly into the designated bank account that was approved by Larry’s wife. Those monies will be used specifically for Larry’s medical bills and costs for follow up care.
I want to thank Andre Fernandez and the people at the Miami Herald, Manny Navarro with The Athletic, Dave Hyde at The Sun Sentinel and Jim Berry at CBS Cannel 4 for your wonderful stories about Blu and for promoting this Go Fund Me page. Also a special shout out to Alex Donno, Zack Krantz and Joe Rose for your kind words and also promoting Larry’s Go Fund Me page.
