FAU Athletics to Host Spring Fest Featuring Alfred Morris




FAU Athletics will host Spring Fest on Saturday, April 20 at FAU Stadium. The day-long event will feature the 2013 Spring Game, and will honor FAU alumnus and NFL Washington Redskins record-breaking running back Alfred Morris.

Activities are open to the public and admission to the 2013 Spring Game is free.

Action begins at 11:00 AM with food trucks outside of the stadium and an on-field experience with activities for local youth.

Inside the stadium, the Owlsí spring drills will culminate with a scrimmage at 2 p.m. This will be the first opportunity to see new team additions in action as well as witness the teamís progression first hand.

Halftime of the Spring Game will welcome home Morris, FAUís all-time rushing leader. Morris was drafted in 2012 draft by the Washington Redskins. In his rookie season, Morris pounded opponents for 1,613 yards on 335 carries for an average of 4.8 yards per carry. The Pensacola native scored 13 touchdowns and set the Redskins single-season rushing record.

Following the game, FAU players and coaches will join fans on the Delray Hyundai Club level for an autograph session and meet and greet.

The 2013 Spring Fest also will serve as an opportunity to select a seat for the 2013 football season.

Fans are encouraged to purchase tickets prior to the spring game to be eligible for one of 20 prizes, including tickets to a Miami Heat versus Orlando Magic game, gift cards to the Itís Owl Time store, as well as a meet and greet with Morris.

I think it kinda sucks we're honoring Alfred during SPRING GAME and not during a regular season game where there will be thousands more people/students.

I guess his schedule probably doesn't allow for him to attend a game in the Fall so I guess it's better than nothing. Just kind of sucks that so many people won't be there.
