As you probably know by now, the newly-minted UWF football team routed Ave Maria University 45-0 on Saturday. But this was more than just a game, it was history.
Many of the 200 or so UWF supporters made the 11-hour trip from Pensacola to Ave Maria University, about 20 miles east of Naples, for the Argonauts inaugural game. Before kickoff, they took part in another college football tradition: tailgating.
Enjoying the sun was George Birch of Clearwater, whose grandson J.J. Lewis is a freshman wide receiver on the Argonauts’ practice squad.
