Vilonia Eagles help opposing team with cleanup

VILONIA, Ark. (KTHV) - Matt Baxter is a computer tech at Vilonia schools and returned from church after Sundays tornado. All that was left was his bathroom on the main level. "My heart just dropped"

It just so happens that three of the teens helping him sift through debris were athletes that you can find on different sides of the court on gameday for the Vilonia Eagles.

Jacob Greer, a basketball stud, Kendall Clower, a girls basketball point guard and cheerleader, Taylor Faischer, all put on gloves and helped rebuild.

"That's like the definition of Vilonia were always willing to help each other and have each others back whenever somebodies hurt," said Faischer.

A group of Eagles proved no matter what team they play for, they're all Arkanstrong

"Everybody in Arkansas is taking it like they've gotten hit too- not just us but everybody in the state...makes it feel like we're bigger than just our small town," said Clower.
