Taking Pride in Widener Football

September 26, 2011

By Nathalie Carril-King ’12

As a Widener senior, I have experienced a few lackluster football seasons. But this year, the team is off to a 3-1 start and I am enjoying a drastic change in the student body’s participation. Students and families are packing the stands at every home game. It is wonderful to see how enthusiastic this year’s students are in supporting the team.

There also is much new life on the team. There are 70 freshmen on the roster this year and they have created quite a buzz.  Freshman Anthony Davis of Upland, Pa., astonished many with his phenomenal execution during the Pride’s season opener.  Davis returned not one but two punts for touchdowns to help the Pride beat Moravian College 44-6.

This year’s homecoming starts Friday and runs through Saturday night. Widener football will be hosting King’s at 1 p.m. Saturday.  For more information and a list of events, see the schedule here. Come support the team and be a part of the spirit. We hope to see you here!
