All former Eagles football players - whether you played under the St. Procopius, Illinois Benedictine College or Benedictine University banner - are invited to attend an Alumni Football Reunion on Saturday, August 18. The event will begin at 3:00 p.m. at the Village of Lisle-Benedictine University Sports Complex stadium. The 2007-08 Eagles' team will have an intersquad scrimmage to begin the afternoon. That will be followed by a barbecue reception upstairs in the Sports Complex Skybox. Those interested in joining us for this chance to re-connect with former teammates should RSVP to Deb Smith in the Alumni Relations office at (630) 829-6080. Responses may also be e-mailed to dsmith@ben.edu by August 12, 2007.
