Appalachian’s Football 101 for International Students was held September 5th at the Appalachian Athletics Center and Kidd Brewer Stadium. A record 42 international students participated in this annual event. Students were given an opportunity to tour ASU’s state of the art training facilities, locker room and media room. The real action began when participants took to the field and suited-up for the full football experience. Football basics were outlined and students were given an opportunity to play a pickup game of touch football. The event concluded with a pizza social where students recapped their experiences.
As a result of Football 101, many international students attended Appalachian’s football game against Greensboro A & T the following weekend.
Football 101 for International Students was sponsored by the Office of the Quality Enhancement Plan, the Office of International Education and the Athletics Department.
