Glenville, WV – For the second year in a row the Glenville State College Pioneer Football team is partnering with the Gilmer County Volunteer Fire Department (GCVFD) for the Annual Spring Football Game which will be played April 19 at 6:00pm at I.L & Sue Morris Stadium. The game will feature the 2012 GSC Pioneer Offense against the Defense.
“The Gilmer County Volunteer Fire Department provides vital services to our community through the efforts of volunteers. These members regularly risk their lives and take time away from their families for the benefit of our community. We wanted to take this opportunity to show them our appreciation for their dedication, and to help raise some much needed funds for them, last year we raised nearly $700.00 dollars for the GCVFD and hopefully we can do better this year,” said GSC Head Football Coach David Hutchison.
The spring game is free to the public, but the Glenville State College Football team will be collecting donations at the game that will benefit the Gilmer County Volunteer Fire Department.
The spring game represents the culmination of spring practice. The Pioneers return 13 starters, 5 on offense and 6 on defense, as well as all kickers from last year’s squad. In 2012 the Pioneers look to improve on the 5-3 conference mark of a year ago.
The Pioneers will open preseason camp on Thursday, August 9 in preparation for the 2012 season. GSC opens the season on Thursday, August 30 when they travel to Carson Newman before returning home for a September 6 contest against rival Fairmont State at 7:00pm.
Anyone who cannot attend the spring game but would like to donate to the GCVFD may contact Coach Hutchison at firstname.lastname@example.org or (304) 462-6230.
