FOOTBALL GOES WITH HOMECOMING AT UIW
From the Incarnate Word Website
Incarnate Word’s football team has been going through fall drills since early August and now it’s time to put on a show as part of UIW’s homecoming weekend.
The Cardinals will be in full pads Saturday (November 22 beginning at 12:30 p.m. at Benson Stadium on campus. All football fans, particularly those curious about the inaugural season of 2009, are invited to watch the action.
Coach Mike Santiago and his staff will divvy up the players and then step back as the pads pop.
Beginning at 11:30 a.m. the University is sponsoring a tailgate party nearby the stadium as a warmup to the game itself.
Once the Saturday intrasquad is completed, the 80-plus players will then hit the dining hall and the weight room in anticipation of being bigger and stronger for August 29, 2009, when the Cardinals open the season at home against Monterrey Tech.
