Kickball Extravaganza Part III

April 25, 2018

BOCA RATON, Fla. - April 26, 2017

BOCA RATON, Fla. - The Third Annual Florida Atlantic University Athletics' Kickball Extravaganza will be Friday, April 27 with the first pitch of game one scheduled for 12:30 p.m. at the FAU Softball Stadium. Admission is free and open to the public. Light lunch will be available for the first 20,000 fans (must be an FAU athletic staff member to redeem food) starting at noon.

The teams and format has been set. The Red Team will be captained by Kachine Alexander. While Ryan Moran will anchor the Blue Team and will serve as the teams' captain, cheerleader and overall instigator, despite playing with 13 players instead of the 14 which completes two of the four rosters. Overall All-Star one season ago, Craig Wilder will captain the Black Team and is also playing a person down, but accepts that as the dominant kickball player that he is. New to FAU is Whiteny Goulish, who took on the challenge of serving as the Grey Team captain, much like she has heading the FAU Athletic ticket operations, with detail and commitment.

The 2018 Event also is under new leadership with Meneftha Pierre stepping up as the tournament director. Like all south Florida events, fans can expect celebrity sightings with newly hired Vice President and Director of Athletics Brian White, securing his ticket in recent days.
