Dukes Football Doing Work Off the Field
April 23, 2012
PITTSBURGH - The Duquesne football team, which concluded spring practice last week, has been busy off the field as well.
For the third consecutive year, the Dukes took part in the national "Get in the Game. Save a Life." bone marrow registry program. The registration was once again a success as 283 fellow students, faculty and staff were registered to bring the overall registration total to 1,059 in three years.
In addition, rising senior linebacker Zach Richert was presented the Outstanding Student Athlete of the Year Award at the Student Organization Leadership & Service Awards banquet on April 17 in the Duquesne University Ballroom. The award is sponsored by the Center for Student Involvement and Office of Greek Life.
The award is presented to an individual student that has made a significant contribution to their athletic team and the Duquesne University community through leadership and dedication.
