More "Football in the Community" News

The Toledo Rocket football program has been making the Toledo community an emphasis in a big way. This time it's time to see what the coaching staff is up to in the community.

The Toledo Rocket football program has been making the Toledo community an emphasis in a big way. Every Friday in February members of the football team are attending various events in the community, talking to children and so forth. However, the players are not the only one's reaching out to the community. The coaching staff is as well.

Last night co-defensive coordinator Mike Ward and inside receivers coach Jason Candle attended the Glazier Mega Clinic for high school coaches at the Hilton Toledo Hotel. They both spoke to the audience of area high school coaches.

Today Mike Ward is teaming up with co-offensive coordinator Scott Satterfield and they are speaking to two area high school football staffs.

It is no question that the Rocket football program values the area community.

Just earlier today several of the football players and some of the coaches headed down to the Toledo Children's Hospital. While there they passed out valentine's cards that they made by hand on Wednesday afternoon. They passed out the cards to patients in the Children's Hospital and talked to them about various subjects.

Last week Aaron Opelt and about 20 other Rocket players attended Give Kids a Smile Day at two local dental locations. They talked to the children about sports and other things like staying healthy and getting good grades. They also signed posters for the children and escorted them to the different rooms.

Next Friday a group of football players will be participating in the Kids Unlimited after school program at Lincoln Academy. There the football players will be playing basketball and dodgeball with the kids, as well as talking to them about school, grades, and life in general.
