UT football gearing up for fifth annual alumni golf eventWritten by Scott Calhoun | | firstname.lastname@example.org
The University of Toledo Football program tees off the fifth annual Rocket Football Alumni Golf Outing on June 3 at the Legacy Golf Club in Ottawa Lake, Mich.
Rocket fans, alumni and supporters are invited to join the festivities, including an opportunity to sign up and play a few holes with former Rocket players and Head Coach Tom Amstutz.
The event, which includes lunch and dinner as well as silent and live auctions, is the brainchild of Amstutz and Free Safety/Outside Linebackers coach Dave Wakolsky.
“This is a major fundraiser for us,” Amstutz said, “it’s a chance for former players to give back to the football program.”
Amstutz said he and Wakolsky expect to have 125 or more players attend next week’s outing, including Rocket legend Chuck Ealey and Ryan Huzjak, starting quarterback from 1994-96. A number of the players will speak at the dinner about their respective careers and memorable stories about UT football, according to Amstutz.
“It’s a group of guys who just love to come back and have a lot of fun with each other,” said Amstutz.
Registration begins at 8 a.m. on the morning of the event and is to be followed by a “shotgun start” at 9 a.m. The cost is $150 per person.
Amstutz said he and Wakolsky were still waiting to hear from former players in the immediate area and if any are interested, they can contact the program office to sign up.
