 Football Alumni,

As our team prepares for the 2014 season, I wanted to take this opportunity to reach out to all our Football Alumni and share a video we have been using heavily in recruiting.  The video, which I have linked to this email, features a few of our recent alums speaking about their experiences playing football at GV.  Grand Valley has a great football tradition... all of you helped build and maintain this excellence. 

 I’ve also included a link to membership opportunities within the GVSU Football Alumni Association.  This group has been instrumental in our success.  Every fall camp this group provides a team cookout for our players.  It’s a great way for our alums to connect with the current team.  The football alumni association has also provided funding for multiple projects in our program.  This summer, we completely renovated our locker room with funds solely contributed from football alumni.  We are currently renovating the Odie Weight Room with funds from several of our recent alums who are playing in the NFL.  The list goes on and on and it is all a result of football alums giving back.

If you are currently a member…thank you for all you do.  If you are not a member, I would encourage you to join.  This group impacts the players in our program in multiple ways.

I’m very excited about 2014.  We return a large number of starters from our team the reached the national semifinal and was ranked #3 in both polls.  Our team is working hard to uphold the tradition of GV Football.  If you are ever in need of anything, do not hesitate to contact me.

 Go Lakers!
