A former SDSU football player is helping other athletes make it through college.
His walk across the state may be over, but Casey Hillman is still raising money for the jackrabbit athletic endowment fund.
Monday the University of South Dakota Athletic Department told us the "The Jackrabbit Journey." raised $10,000 and the donations are still coming in.
Now 31 and working in the family plumbing business, Hillman wanted to help out by raising money and awareness. He started in the black hills and 14 days later delivered the game ball in Brookings on Saturday.
He walked more than 400 miles.
