Ohio Football Gives Back During Day 3 at the Bahamas Bowl

Ohio Football Gives Back During Day 3 at the Bahamas Bowl

NASSAU, BAHAMAS – Day three of the 2017 Bahamas Bowl began as usual but closed on a bit of a softer side as players from both the Ohio football team and UAB spent their afternoons giving back to the local community.

Prior to the community outreach work, the Bobcats held their third practice in the Bahamas on Wednesday morning.

Following practice members of both teams visited the Ranfurly Homes for Children to shoot some hoops and provide some motivation. You couldn't help but notice the glow on the faces of the kids and student-athletes.

 "I just feel blessed to be here," Ohio safety Kylan Nelson added. "I am a big believer in giving back and to come out here and do what I can. I love this kind of thing and wish I could do even more."

After leaving Ranfurly, both groups traveled across town to Thomas A. Robinson National Stadium to take part in a special youth football clinic. The players put the children through stretching exercises and various stations including tackling, receiving and throwing.

The afternoon concluded with a special touchdown celebration drill followed by a group photo under the goal posts.
