Thu, Oct. 20, 2011 - [Football]

Loras College has invited nearly 100 children from the Dubuque Independent Football League to attend their upcoming football game against the Coe College Kohawks on October 22. Children have the opportunity to experience a college football game as the Duhawks hosts NCAA Football's sixteenth annual "Take A Kid to the Game" (TAKG) program presented by Coca-Cola and sponsored by another Corporate Champion AT&T.  Kids will receive a free ticket with the purchase of a full-priced adult ticket. 


Loras College is one of more than 200 schools across the nation that hosting a game in this campaign focused on allowing youth the opportunity to attend college football games.  The Take A Kid to the GameÒprogram is entering into its sixteenth year in the promotion of collegiate athletics.


"We are excited to host this event," Jayne Eslinger, event organizer and current Duhawk with Loras College's Student-Athlete Advisory Committee said Monday. "Sharing the college football Saturday experience with these young football players will be a lot of fun."


The Loras event will include a postgame meet-and-greet with the Duhawk football team and coaches. Members of other Loras College teams will also join the children in the stands during the game.


The Take A Kid to the Game program is one of the national promotions of NCAA Football, the marketing arm of college football.  NCAA Football represents a coalition of the American Football Coaches Association, Collegiate Commissioners Association, Football Bowl Association, National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics, National Collegiate Athletic Association and the National Football Foundation.
