Apparently, Watervliet Panther Football now has international appeal! Four Australian young men saw the crowd of cars and people at WHS on Friday and stopped in to see what was going on. Having never experienced American Football before, they decided to stay a while and check it out! Here Bradley Burns, Tyler Jeff, Riley Fucsko, and Liam Rossetto are pictured with Stacy Morrison, who was working at the gate for the Panther Athletics Department. The Aussies were in the US to participate in the Motocross of Nations event which was held at Red Bud in Buchanan last weekend.
