Youth Football Clinic and Community Days

Wabash held its annual Football Youth Clinic yesterday. More than 300 children from kindergarten through sixth grade met members of the Little Giant football team, learning new techniques, and most importantly, having a lot of fun. The kids participated in a variety of passing, running, receiving, kicking, and tackling drills with members of the college team. The day concluded with the "Hammer Hit." Kids run through a line of players and hit a tackling dummy at the end of the line while landing on safety mats. A photo album has been posted on the Wabash site.

Festivities on the Wabash campus continue with free admission to today's 1:00 p.m. football home opener against Franklin for Community Day.

Ohio Wesleyan is also celebrating Community Day today, with free admission to all athletic events: the Battling Bishop football team takes on Catholic at noon, women's soccer hosts Capital at 1:30 p.m., field hockey welcomes Wooster in its NCAC home opener at 4:30 p.m. OWU's men's soccer team rounds out the day with the second round of its annual adidas® Invitational, with Capital taking on Medaille at 5 p.m. and Ohio Wesleyan facing Alma at 7:30 p.m.
