SPOKANE, Wash. — Gardner Minshew sent a video to healthcare workers at MultiCare to wish them happy holidays and thank them for their hard work on the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic on Thursday.
Minshew was the quarterback for the WSU Cougars during their 2018 season before he was drafted into the NFL. Minshew now plays as the quarterback for the Jacksonville Jaguars.
MultiCare said Minshew was kind enough to send their healthcare workers a message in an effort to "rally the troops" amid the pandemic.
"What's up guys, Gardner Minshew here - NFL Quarterback and Coug for life. I just want to thank all of y'all who are fighting on the front lines of this pandemic," Minshew said. "I can't thank you enough for your efforts. I know that you're putting in long hours, but I know with y'all's help we're going to beat COVID-19. I just want to say happy holidays, merry Christmas, and go Cougs."
