FAU Athletics to Host Spring Fest Featuring Alfred Morris

Florida Atlantic University's department of athletics will host Spring Fest, a day-long event, April 20, 2013 featuring FAU Alum and NFL Washington Redskins Rookie of the Year vote recipient Alfred Morris and the 2013 football spring game. Spring Fest activities will be held at the FAU Stadium, 777 Glades Road, Boca Raton, FL. The Spring Fest activities are open to the public and admission to the 2013 spring game is free.

The day will begin at 11 a.m. with food trucks opening outside of the stadium and an on-field experience and fun activities for local youth.

Inside the stadium, the Owls' spring drills will culminate with a game, which will kick-off at 2 p.m. The game will be the first opportunity to see new team additions in action as well as witness the team's progression first hand.

Alfred Morris T-Shirt


The spring game halftime will be a blast from the past as FAU and the community of Boca Raton welcome home Alfred Morris, FAU's all-time rushing leader. Morris was drafted in 2012 draft by the Washington Redskins. In his rookie season, Morris pounded opponents for 1,613 yards on 335 carries for an average of 4.8 yards per carry. The Pensacola, FL native scored 13 touchdowns and set the Redskins single-season rushing record. FAU's Bookstore will be open in the stadium and will feature an Alfred Morris T-Shirt.

Leading into the Spring Fest, the athletics department will recognize 20 fans with a prize. Each day one lucky fan, that has purchased a 2013 season ticket, will be awarded a prize. Prizes vary from tickets to a Miami Heat versus Orlando Magic game to team merchandise or possibly a meet and greet with Alfred Morris.

Following the game, FAU players and coaches will join fans on the Hyundai Deck for an autograph session and meet and greet.

The 2013 Spring Fest also will be a perfect opportunity to select your seat. Members of the athletic department will be on hand to help choose your seats, but fans are encouraged to purchase tickets prior to the spring game to be eligible for one of the 20 prizes.

Season ticket packages are on sale and can be purchased by visiting ticketmaster.com, www.fausports.com or by calling 1-866-FAU-Owls. For groups of 15 or more ask the ticket representative for discounted rates.

ESPN 106.3 will broadcast the game with Ken LaVicka, the voice of the Owls, will have the call. LaVicka also will use the time to find his 2013 broadcast partner and may entertain guest spots from potential color commentators.
