The Wolf Pack will be wearing camouflage jerseys for the game. The jerseys of the 34 players and four coaches will be available via a silent auction throughout the week preceding the game. The proceeds from the silent auction will be donated to the WWP to help injured military personnel. Bids will be accepted at the game on Friday night or can be taken over the phone or via email by contacting Brett Simpson, Associate Athletic Director at 504.864.7396 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

They strive to create the most successful, well-adjusted generation of wounded service members in our nation's history.
