FAU football looks forward to Stoneman Douglas benefit practice
BOCA RATON, Fla. (CBS12) —
The Florida Atlantic University campus sits just 12 miles from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. The school and its sports teams routinely bring in students from the Parkland area, and this weekend Lane Kiffin and the football team, are doing their part to help the still-grieving community.
The Owls out at spring practice this morning on campus in Boca Raton. But on Saturday, they will head south to Fort Lauderdale for an open practice and youth camp, with all proceeds going to benefit Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. One of their players, walk-on offensive guard Nick Weber, is a Stoneman Douglas grad, and a number of other players hail from Broward County.
The football team will host their first open practice of the spring, Saturday at Carter Park in Fort Lauderdale. Practice starts at 10:30am - it's free, but all donations will benefit Stoneman Douglas High School. The Owls will host a youth camp at 1:15 featuring players and coaches, and it costs 20 dollars, for kids in grades K through 8.
