Syracuse fans watched as their beloved Orange shocked No. 2 ranked Clemson 27-24 last Friday night. It was Syracuse's second win over a team ranked in the top two in school history.

During the storming of the field after the gigantic and emotional win, a Syracuse fan named Justin Heath suffered two broken legs while trying to jump the rail and celebrate with the team and other fans.

A Syracuse website started a GoFundMe donation page to try to offset some of his medical costs.

Here are some of the details from the site.

Justin took a tumble while attempting to celebrate with fans after Syracuse's upset of Clemson with hundreds of ecstatic Cuse fans. Unfortunately, while hopping over the railing on the way down to the turf he was pushed. Upon impact with the turf his right ankle was completely crushed, his left kneecap was displaced and he broke both legs. After two surgeries that included rods, plates and pins, Justin is likely to be out of work for 3-6 months.

As of Thursday morning, donations were over $3,800 for the $4,400 goal.
