Seton Hill University's (SHU) students, staff, trustee members and neighborhood kids flocked to Offutt field on Saturday, September 10 for SHU's Griffins football team's first home game against McDaniels College's Terrors.
The crowd buzzed as former Pittsburg Steeler and SHU trustee Dwight White was given the title of Honorary Captain. As White introduced the Griffins, they [the teams]came running out of the field.
In the midday heat, the crowd persevered with towels draped on their heads. "It's too hot, but the game was like any other type of football game full of community bonding," said Keisha Jimmerson, assistant director of the office of residence life.
Junior Stephanie Kattera said, "I liked it [the game], they really worked together."
The Griffins lost to the Terrors 28 to 9 but sophomore Katrina Strokum continued to be optimistic, "They'll do better as they play more games."
According to Dean of Student Services Charmaine Strong, the progress that the team had made will give their opponents in the future "a run for their money."Posted by Michael Diezmos at September 17, 2005 9:36 AM
