When the Austin College football team hosts Trinity University at 1 p.m. Saturday for the final game of the season, the Austin College community will be honoring local members of the armed forces as a part of Veterans Appreciation Day at Jerry Apple Stadium.


Prior to the game, veterans will be encouraged to join together on the sideline for the pregame coin toss while members of the Vietnam Veterans of America Chapter 973 will raise the American flag during the singing of the national anthem.


All veterans past and present are welcome to join in this recognition and invited to come to the game to be honored, with pregame announcements beginning at approximately 12:40 p.m.
