Community Service at the Forefront for Crusader Football

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – The past few months have been busy ones for the coaches and members of the Susquehanna football team. Beginning this past spring, the Crusaders have had a hand (or many hands) in numerous community service projects under the direction of first-year head coach Tom Perkovich.

In early April, SU hosted its annual Agapeland Preschool Field Day as Crusader players and coaches welcome children from the local preschool to Lopardo Stadium.

On April 9, Susquehanna again partnered with the Be the Match bone marrow testing drive for the second consecutive year. Members of the campus and local communities were encouraged to sign up to be on the national registry.

And throughout the spring, the Crusaders hosted a Lift-a-Thon to raise money for Lauren's First and Goal, a charity that raises money for pediatric brain cancer research. Susquehanna raised $1900 for the charity and on June 7, Perkovich and members of his coaching staff attended the 12th-annual Lauren's First and Goal Charity Football camp at Lafayette College. The camp, now in its 12th year, raised $100,000 on that day alone.
