Kay Yow Spring Game Set for April 18

The newly named Kay Yow Spring Football Game is slated for 1 p.m., Saturday, April 18 at Carter-Finley Stadium.

While there is no admission charged for the game, Wolfpack coach Tom O'Brien requests that all adult fans donate a minimum of $1 as they enter the stadium in honor of late NC State women's basketball coach Kay Yow.

All funds collected at the game will be given to the Kay Yow/WBCA Cancer Fund, part of the V Foundation for Cancer Research.

"Kay Yow was a remarkable person and I'm proud that I had the chance to work with her for a way-too-brief period of time. Her toughness, perseverance and faith have been inspirational to countless people and our coaches and team are proud to have a chance to honor her in this way," O'Brien said.

Parking lot gates will open at 9 a.m. for the game, with stadium gates opening at noon. Fans are asked to enter at Gates 5 & 6. Seating will be limited to the West Stands and the South End Zone.

Immediately following the game, players and coaches will meet with fans on the upper concourse for 30 minutes.

For the third consecutive year, the spring game will be the centerpiece of the former football players' reunion weekend. All former players are invited to attend Friday's practice and to a private reception at Vaughn Towers. Players will also have a section reserved for seating Saturday's game.

Any players that would like to participate, who have not been to previous events or are not on the current mailing list, pleased fill out this questionnaire.
