Red & Black Spring Game

Event Description
Cal U’s football team will conclude its spring drills Saturday, April 27 by hosting the Red & Black Spring Game at Adamson Stadium’s Hepner-Bailey Field. The varsity scrimmage will begin at 1 p.m., followed by a tailgate party in the Alumni Pavilion at Roadman Park.

Dr. Tony McGrew, professor emeritus and a volunteer academic advocate for athletics, will serve as honorary coach. National Football League defensive back Terrence Johnson and football alumnus Joe Lutz ‘68 will be honorary captains.

The festivities also include recognition of Cal U’s 2007 football team, which went 13-1 overall and made the program’s first-ever NCAA Division II playoff appearance. The Vulcans reached the national semifinals that season.

At halftime, Cal U will introduce its new recruits for the 2013 season and announce the recipient of the DeMichela Award for leadership, spirit and hustle in spring practice.

This award is named after alumnus Michael DeMichela ’76, an all-conference tight end who was the driving force behind an annual alumni game that was contested for 30 years, from 1979-2008. This year’s award-winner is junior offensive lineman Jack Abercrombie of Hatboro, Pa.

After the game, spectators will be allowed onto the field for a photograph and autograph session with the players.

The festivities begin with a Friday Night Smoker at Lagerheads restaurant in Coal Center, Pa. Starting at 6 p.m., the pregame event is open to all football alumni.

Under the guidance of first-year head coach Mike Kellar, Cal U went 8-3 overall last fall. The Vulcans will open the 2013 season at Hillsdale (Mich.) College on Sept. 7.

Admission to Saturday’s game and tailgate party is $5 per person; the fee can be paid in advance or the day of the game.

For more information about the football festivities, contact Chelsey Burk, business manager for the Department of Athletics, at 724-938-5790 or burk@calu.edu.
