The Youngstown State University Athletic Department has partnered with Mr. Rooter to present the Second Annual Youth Football Day at Stambaugh Stadium. The event will take place on Saturday, Oct. 28, when the Penguins play host to Illinois State in a 2 p.m. kickoff.
Mr. Rooter Plumbing, a YSU Corporate Partner, will underwrite reserved game tickets for area midget and youth football teams – up to 8th grade. The coach of the youth team is asked to contact the YSU Athletic Ticket Office at (330) 941-7229 to make team ticket reservations. Last fall more than 1,200 youth football players, cheerleaders and coaches were able to attend a YSU game.
This year's game also marks the annual Homecoming contest. The Homecoming Parade will take place at noon on Fifth Avenue, while the King & Queen will be crowned at halftime. Gates will open at 12:30 p.m.
Tickets for the Illinois State game and the Missouri State contest on Nov. 18 are available through the Athletic Ticket Office during normal business hours or by calling 330-941-1YSU. Fans may also log onto YSUsports.com for game day promotions and individual game information.
