It is getting close to that time of year again – football season! As we do every fall, we are putting together our flag football team for the Capital Alumni Network (CAN). We would love to have some Boilermakers join the team for the weekend league! It is a FREE league for players, until the minimal fee for playing in the playoff tournament. If interested in joining the team and getting more details, please contact coaches Joey Tetzloff (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Rob Firman (email@example.com).
If you would like more information on the CAN organization, feel free to visit the website.
