Football philanthropy

Senior Chris Finney, sophomore Chris Halenkamp and junior Pat McCarthy of the WUSTL Bears football team collect donations from fans at Francis Field prior to the St. Louis Rams holding a practice there Aug. 6. The workout, which featured the Rams running about 48 plays, some kicking drills and some 7-on-7 scenarios, lasted approximately 1 hour, 45 minutes and was attended by 4,655 fans. The Rams and their fans weren’t the only beneficiaries of the event — 15 55-gallon barrels of school supplies were collected for donation to St. Louis public schools.
