DURHAM, N.C. ( - On Saturday, Aug. 29, North Carolina Central University football fans will have the opportunity to see the 2009 Eagles for the first time with the annual “Meet the Eagles” event, starting at 11 a.m. on the football practice field inside the NCCU track and field facility (off Lawson Street).

The team’s first public scrimmage will begin at 11 a.m., followed by a meet-and-greet session with the football student-athletes, coaches and cheerleaders. Admission is free.
Special guests include Brian Dawson of K97.5, as well as Mr. and Miss NCCU.

The regular format of the event was altered due to the location, which was changed because of the continuing installation of artificial turf in O’Kelly-Riddick Stadium.

“There is limited seating at the practice field, so we have shortened the event program this year,” said Kyle Serba, Associate Athletics Director at NCCU. “The comfort of our fans was our top priority in the planning process. We will not be introducing each student-athlete and coach individually as we have in years past, but fans will still have the opportunity to see the team in action and get autographs and pictures of the Eagles following the scrimmage.”

The 2009 “Meet the Eagles” is presented by the NCCU Department of Athletics and the NCCU Student Government Association Junior Class Council.

NCCU opens the 2009 football season on Sept. 5 at Hampton University.
