The McPherson College football team has been getting out into the community this past spring, giving back to McPherson by doing community service projects throughout the city.
"We believe that getting out into the community is important, not just for the people we help, but for our players as well," Mac head coach Steve Fox said. "We feel that if we give to the community, that they will in turn support our program this fall by coming to our games."
The Bulldogs participated in McPherson's annual "Brush Up Mac" back in April. The athletes painted, did yard work and helped fix up houses throughout the city.
The team is also helping throughout USD 418. It helped construct "Little Free Libraries" for each elementary school. These are book deposits that sit outside each elementary school and they allow students to come and take books to read during the summer.
They also help mentor students at the McPherson Middle School and volunteer at Eisenhour Elementary with first- and fourth-graders.
Fox and his staff are scheduled to speak at the Kansas State High School Activities Association 82nd Annual Coaching School this August.
