For the past four years, the Mount St. Joseph University football team has hosted a Samaritan’s Feet home football game.
This Saturday, September 24, the Mount plays Manchester University in a Samaritan's Feet football game. Each Mount football player will wear a orange wristband that will help a needy child, locally and globally, by providing a new pair of socks and shoes. In addition, Mount head coach Rod Huber will coach shoeless from the sidelines, raising awareness for the number of children around the world who don't have shoes to wear.
Huber began the tradition of hosting a Samaritan's Feet game after coaching a clinic in Africa several years ago and seeing the poverty firsthand.
The game starts 1:30 p.m. at Schueler Field. Donations for Samaritan's Feet will be accepted at the game, including new socks and shoes.
