Drake Football Team Leaves for Panama Monday

The Drake football team leaves today for a week long trip to Panama that will conclude with a game on Friday night. Drake head coach Todd Stepsis was an assistant back in 2018 when the Bulldogs took a trip to China.

Stepsis was trying to organize a trip a few years ago but it was pushed back due to COVID. He says Panama is a perfect destination.

Stepsis says football is just a small part of a trip that will also allow the players to earn three credits toward graduation.

The Bulldogs will play an All-Star team on Friday night from a Kiwanis league that started on a U-S military base back in the 1970s.
