Published 4:40 pm Friday, July 29, 2016

Bearcat fans will have the opportunity to watch a football practice at Centennial Field next Friday, Aug. 12, for the Bearcat Fan Day.

The inter-squad scrimmage and practice will give Bearcat fans an opportunity to watch the players go through warm ups, perform drills and compete against each other. Announcers will be in the press box to guide and call the event.

“We’re going to introduce all the kids and try to get the fans to know them all,” coach Jeff Littleton said. “It’s a chance to see how much better they have gotten since last year.”

The fan day event will kick off at 6 p.m. and run until about 7:30 p.m. There is no admission fee, but Littleton is asking fans to consider bringing a box of Oxyclean washing powder to help with washing uniforms throughout the season.
