Football Lends a Hand

GETTYSBURG, Pa. – Earlier this spring, 13 members of the Susquehanna football team took part in SU Serve, Susquehanna University's month-long campaign to complete 10,000 volunteer service hours, by making a trip to clean trails located at the historic Gettysburg Battlefield in Gettysburg, Pa.

The group effort was spearheaded by Anthony Palazzolo '13, the team's manager and member of Tau Kappa Epsilon. Palazzo organized a similar effort last year with his fraternity and this year helped coordinate the football team's trip.

The day of service included hours of clearing brush, trees and trash the trails between Little Round Top and Big Round Top, located at the southern peak of the Gettysburg Battlefield.

SU Serve smashed its 10,000-hour goal by completing over 17,000 hours of community service during the month of April.

A list of those players who made the trip is listed below and offensive coordinator Nate Milne and his wife also accompanied the team to Gettysburg.
