Devastation Greets ‘Dig’ and Co. in Haiti

Posted by jetsstaff on March 16, 2010 – 8:48 am

Here is a report from Jets safety James "Dig" Ihedigbo, who landed with his group in Haiti on Monday afternoon. We’ll have more audio, video and written reports in the next three days:

Day one complete. Just a surreal experience — words can’t express the tragedy and devastation we’ve witnessed but the guys are helping out in a big way. Those here with me are David Clowney, Vernon Gholston and former Jet Ahmad Carroll.

After we landed, we were part of a press confernece with Wyclef Jean’s wife Claudinette and the Yele foundation, which was attended by over 50 media members. Then we toured the streets of Port-au-Prince before heading to Croix-des-Douquets, a small village, and set up tents in the dark for over 500 people without shelter.

Right now the streets are dark because there’s no electricity. People are everywhere, homeless, searching for food, starving and just in search of anything for survival.

Tomorrow we visit sports and agricultural programs in one of the worst and most devestated areas of Haiti, teaching football and replanting produce. Then a visit to a tent city to spread some cheer and show support to the locals.

I’ll update you more tomorrow.

    I keep reading these twitter quotes on this page from Cromartie about god & all this stuff. Cromartie be a good dad & play well for the Jets BEFORE you start preaching to everyone. Show us in your ACTIONS NOT YOUR WORDS!

    Does anybody know why Carroll is a “former Jet”? I thought he was one of good ST guys and looking better at DB.

    Story has it that Westoff and Carroll had issues due to ST penalties during the earlier part of the season. Got to the point that Carroll was always on the inactive list then finally released. In my opinion, Carroll is a excellent player and will get opportunities else where.

    ’64 Tom, my understanding is that Carroll had major attitude problems. I heard Rex got tired of it and cut ties.

    Good people in the Jets camp. This is an amazing story! Will you go again?
