Coin Toss – November 12


We are glad to announce that HBU Football has decided to honor all veterans that served on active duty during the November 12th home game vs. SFA. Coach Shealy has asked for veterans that served on active duty to be “Honorary Captains” for the SFA game. This means that those who reply will be given a Husky Veterans Association T-Shirt purchase by the football team and be asked to participate in the coin toss before the game. The NCAA limits the number of participants to meet at midfield but the “Honorary Captains” will walk out with the game captains and proceed all the way to the hash marks just shy of midfield. Following the coin toss the announcer will recognize the veterans on the field and all veterans in attendance of the game. These veterans will then be able to remain on the sideline for the entirety of the game, or take a seat in the stands if they so choose. Please RSVP @ hva@hbu.edu no later than Tuesday, November 8th, with your shirt size and any tickets for your guests should you have any. HBU football games are always free to veterans, just RSVP with an email of how many tickets you will need.
