Widener Football Visits Shanksville Memorial

September 12, 2011

Widener University’s football team trip to Western Pennsylvania this past weekend consisted of much more than a game.

The team on Friday, Sept. 9, visited the 9/11 Memorial in Shanksville, Pa., site of the crash of United Airlines Flight 93 on September 11, 2001.   Players and coaches placed a wreath at the site, and also left written messages for the families of the victims.

On Saturday, Widener beat Thiel College in Greenville, Pa., 44-14 to raise the young season’s record to 2-0.  Click here for more on the story and additional photos.
