MEQUON, Wis. - Concordia University Wisconsin football players found themselves swarmed on the field Tuesday night at Century Stadium, after they participated in the team's Second Annual Youth Football Clinic.
Members of the Cedarburg Youth Football League had the opportunity to learn more than just the fundamentals - passing, catching, kicking, and blocking - as the Falcons talked about the importance of family and academics after the non-contact drills were performed. The free clinic also featured the CUW athletic training staff which showed the youngsters how to use crutches and what it is like to have their ankles and wrists taped.
"It was exciting to see to see our CUW student-athletes and the kids having fun," head coach Greg Etter said. "We want everyone to feel as if they are a part of our football program. We are involved in many charity events throughout the year and this was just one of the ways we connect with those in the community."
The Cedarburg Youth Football League members were invited to all of the Falcons remaining football games and are admitted free when wearing their jersey.
CUW returns to the field on Saturday, Sept. 17 for its final non-conference game of the season against Carthage College at 1 p.m. at Art Keller Field.
