Falcons’ Ryan surprises Newnan football with $25,000 donation to rebuild after tornado

The city of Newnan is still cleaning through the debris an EF-4 tornado left behind nearly a month ago.

Newnan High School took a direct hit. Every building on the school’s campus was damaged by the overnight tornado, including the football stadium.

On Friday, the Newnan football team learned some help is on the way from the Atlanta Falcons.

Quarterback Matt Ryan surprised the team on a Zoom call and made a big announcement. The Falcons are donating $25,000 to tornado relief efforts.
