Bound for England
Coach Mike Working has said that his Mount St. Joseph football team, in conjunction with the World League of American Football, will play in two high school exhibition games in England against St. Pete's Academy from Staten Island, N.Y., and another undetermined American team in June 1996.
The games, slated for June 10 and June 16, likely will be played as preliminary or halftime events.
"It'll be a great cultural event for our students, and we're grateful to be invited and to be involved," said Working, whose former college coaching acquaintance, Jimmy Nipper, of American Tours, worked with WLAF European Markets director Oliver Luck to set up the event.
"We'll be opening this up to the community, whether there are parents, teachers, friends or relatives who want to go."
