DALLAS (FWAA) The Football Writers Association of
America has teamed up with the AT&T Cotton Bowl Classic
and The V Foundation for Cancer Research to become an official
partner of National College Football Day.
The association has made a donation to The V Foundation and will
work to solicit other donations from within its membership. On Saturday,
Nov. 3, FWAA members will join members of the American Football
Coaches Association (AFCA) and the National Association of Division
I-A Football Officials (NADFO) in wearing commemorative lapel pins.
"National College Football Day is a great day and now a great
cause," said FWAA Executive Director Steve Richardson. "And, we
as an association, are pleased to help promote it and to also make
a donation to The V Foundation."
Saturday marks the fourth annual National College Football Day.
This holiday, created by the AT&T Cotton Bowl Classic, continues
to grow in stature. For the second straight season, The V Foundation
for Cancer Research is the beneficiary.
"Our goal is to continually grow National College Football Day
while increasing awareness and raising money on behalf of The V
Foundation for Cancer Research," Bruce Gadd, AT&T Cotton Bowl Chairman,
said. "By adding the support of a prestigious organization such
as the FWAA, weve taken a giant step towards achieving our goal."
