WASHINGTON – The Gallaudet University football team is keeping with its program tradition of pitching-in and lending their hands to the Gallaudet garden. The team started helping three years ago when they helped to build the original garden. Every spring the team goes back to give the garden a jumpstart for the new season.
On April 4, 42 members of the football team worked for three hours to strip a large grassy hill to get ready for planting this spring. The team also helped to restructure the current garden bed to give it a new polished look. Some players are planning on returning through out the spring to help with the next stages of the project.
“It’s always great to be able to contribute to any campus community project. Coming together as a team and working hard at something not related to football gives us a chance to grow and become closer as a team,” said GU football coach Chuck Goldstein.
