“Shortly after hearing about the story on Twitter, Josh Gorges contacted our office and let us know that he would do his best to try and get the guys (some of whom had flown in specially for the event) to sign another jersey for Cylis. Last week, Josh let us know he’d made good on his efforts. We reached out to Cylis and his Mom, Brenda, and arranged for them to come by and pick up the signed jersey this morning,” Shauna Nyrose, communications director said in a press release.
