With football season just around the corner, the Eastern football team is set for it’s annual Fan Day at 5:30 p.m. Saturday at the concourse of the Roy Kidd Stadium. Eastern fans are encouraged to come out and meet with their favorite players for one-on-one interviews, receive autographs and take pictures with the players.

“This is a good chance for everyone to meet the players on a personal level,” head coach Danny Hope said. “Especially those who might have a class with one of the players.”

Hope will speak with the fans at 6:30 p.m. and then the team will hold its first public scrimmage of the fall semester at 7 p.m.

Hope is encouraging all students to come out and get into the football spirit and to see what the Colonel football team will bring to the table this season.

“It’s all about the students,” Hope said. “We could have had this anytime, but we chose this weekend for the students.”
