PLEASANTVILLE, N.Y. -- The Pace University Football team hosted Fan Fest on Pace Field in Pleasantville on Sunday, Aug. 24.
The event featured several activities for all fans in attendance which began with team photos from noon to 1 p.m. Following team photos, the Pace football players ran a youth clinic that included teams from surrounding towns such as White Plains, Tarrytown/Sleepy Hollow and Ossining. All children in attendance ran drills with current members of the Pace Football team and Head Coach Andy Rondeau addressed the group following the event.

After the clinic, all participants received free pizza and autographed posters from the team. To conclude the day the Pace Football team participated in the #IceBucketChallenge and challenged Faculty Athletic Representative and Criminal Justice Professor Peg Fitzegerald, Associate Athletics Director and Head Softball Coach Claudia Stabile as well as Dan Buffone, associate director of the tutoring center in Pleasantville to participate.
