Thank You for Supporting Hoya Football

To the Editor:

I wanted to write a quick note to all Georgetown University students and thank them for the tremendous display of student support last weekend at our home opener against Brown University. Although the final outcome was not what we wanted, the festival atmosphere and fun filled environment was made possible due to your support of the Georgetown Football program. The game with Brown was a truly historic day and it showed without question what the game of football – combined with a boisterous student body – can bring to a college campus on a fall Saturday afternoon.

We had over 1,000 students in attendance at the Brown game and I would like to invite you all back for our Patriot League home opener on Saturday, Oct. 1, at 2 p.m. against Lafayette College.

I urge you all to come out early and support the football program against the defending champion Leopards. Georgetown is truly a special place and it is the students who set the Hilltop apart from other institutions. Thanks again and we will see you on Saturday.

Robert Benson Head Football Coach Sept. 23, 2005
