What are Future Bearcat participants saying?
"The Goshen Youth Football Club attended their first "Future Bearcats" game in 2011. It proved to be an experience all the Goshen Warrior players, parents, and coaches will not forget. For many of our players it was the first time attending a college football game. There was excitement throughtout our entire club for the whole event. The opportunity to welcome the Bearcat players onto the field by participating in the tunnel was just the beginning of a fun filled evening of football. My nine year old team decided to adopt the "UC Rumble" and make it their own for the rest of their youth football season and replace the "U-C" with "G-W" (Goshen Warriors)."
"The kids and parents from St Susanna Titans Youth Football and Basketball programs had a great time while seeing the football and basketball teams up close through the Future Bearcat Program. It was an experience the kids enjoyed and will remember, especially when they were given the opportunity to scrimmage on the same court the UC players use. The parents as well had a great time and saw another side to college athletics and the professional people who are needed to make places like UC a great experience."
