In August, more than 50 international students gathered at Harris Village for a welcome barbecue spiced up by Florida Tech football players. Ten team members arrived in uniform, footballs in hand, to explain the uniquely American tradition. The players demonstrated how to pass a football, explained the rules of the game, posed for pictures and, judging by student enthusiasm, drew some new fans to the sport.
Florida Today covered the event and put the story on page one of the Sept. 4 issue. Go Panthers!
