Philly Trip Preview

During Greenville College's spring break, March 11th-19th, 23 football players and coaches will travel to Philadelphia, PA for a mission’s trip. The trip will consist of cleaning up a drug riddled park and putting on a camp at that park for the local children. In the community the team will be visiting there are no athletic programs for children. The team will be able to give back and spread the message of Jesus through this football camp. The trip will be very similar to the trip the team took in 2009.

If you would like to support the team please contact Coach Jake Schenk at 618.664.6729 or at jake.schenk@greenville.edu .

Tales From the Trail

Much like the classic video game Oregron Trail, recruiting out of state has become an exciting adventure for the Greenville College Football coaching staff.

This week Offensive Line Coach Aaron Mingo went to visit some potential Panthers in the Silver State. Coach Mingo visited both local high schools and individuals just off the strip in Las Vegas, Nevada.

During his time there Coach Mingo shacked up with the family of current Panther Kody Herzog.

"The Herzog's were great." Coach Mingo explained, "They took care of me while I'm out here trying to find the next Kody!"

On the second leg of his trip Coach Mingo will visit California. The Golden state accounted for six All-UMAC players in 2010.

Coach Mingo will be staying with former Panther great Garrett Vasquez.

Mingo will return Sunday just in time for the Presidents Day Preview Day at Greenville College.
