WKU Football Event with Seneca Alumni, AJ Jackson!

On July 27th at 6 p.m., the GLAC will be hosting a WKU Football Kick-Off party at the BW3s in St. Matthews. WKU’s new Football Coach, Mike Sanford, will be there to share his exclusive thoughts about the upcoming season. He’ll be joined by other members of his WKU staff and, most importantly, a number of this year’s players from the Louisville area. Coach Sanford has invited A.J. Jackson to represent Seneca – and we’d love for all the Redhawk faithful to come out and show their support for their very own Hilltopper athlete!

This is the fourth year for the WKU Football Kick-Off party here in Louisville, and I can attest to how much it means for the players to see their hometown friends and families in the crowd. This year, the GLAC wanted to pay special tribute to the local schools who set these players on their course to becoming successful student-athletes at the collegiate level. While A.J. is a Hilltopper now, we know he is also still a Redhawk at heart – and I hope the Seneca community will join us on the 27th to support him as he starts off his new season at WKU!

What:                   Greater Louisville Alumni Chapter WKU Football Kick-Off Party

Where:                 BW3s in St. Matthews

4600 Shelbyville Rd.

Louisville, KY 40207

When:                 Thursday, July 27th starting at 6:00 pm

HILLTOPPERS HEADED BACK TO LOUISVILLE FOR FOURTH YEAR OF LOUISVILLE KICKOFF PARTY

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. — For the fourth-straight year, the WKU Hilltoppers will host their annual Louisville Kickoff Party, presented this year by the WKU Greater Louisville Alumni Chapter, at Buffalo Wild Wings in the Shelbyville Road Plaza (4600 Shelbyville Road) on Thursday, July 27.

The event is set for a 6 p.m. ET start and will feature the back-to-back Conference USA Champion Hilltoppers and first-year head coach Mike Sanford.

“It’s really important for our program to be in Louisville,” Sanford said. “It’s not the actual capital of the state, but for all intents and purposes – economically, socially, culturally – Louisville is as important an area as there is, both in recruiting and in developing relationships with our alumni. There are 17 players on our roster from the Louisville-area, so having our Red Towel displayed prominently in 11 high schools is a big deal in Louisville.”

The upcoming event will feature autographs, prizes and giveaways and food specials. Sanford, select WKU Football assistant coaches, WKU Director of Athletics Todd Stewart and select Hilltoppers of local interest will also speak at the event. Fans will also have the chance to get their photo taken with a plethora of hardware, including the 2015 and 2016 C-USA Championship trophies as well as all three of WKU’s bowl trophies, including the Bahamas, Miami Beach and Boca Raton bowls.

Big Red Vette Raffle tickets will also be available for purchase for a chance to win a 2017 Corvette.

WKU features more Louisville-area players than any other football program in the state, with 17 Hilltoppers doting the roster from 11 different high schools in the area.

The Hilltoppers and Sanford begin their 2017 campaign at home against in-state foe Eastern Kentucky on Sept. 2. Kick is set for 6 p.m., as the two schools meet again on the gridiron for the first time since 2008 in a renewal of the most-played football series in the Commonwealth.

How to Follow the Hilltoppers: For complete information on WKU Hilltopper Football, follow the program via social media @WKUFootball on Twitter and Facebook.

Henry County Help Center

February 16, 2017

In the spring of 1970, Joe Durbin didn’t know what his life would hold.  After attending Seneca High School for almost four years, the siren song of the Navy called him to duty.  But after the Navy and a career as a farrier and equine dentist he opened the Henry County Help Center, a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization established to help residents in need of food, toiletries, personal hygiene products, educational and moral support. The organization is made up of individuals, businesses and churches that volunteer to make the program possible.

Recently, the Redhawk Rangers visited the Henry County Help Center to reorganize their food pantry.  If you want to read more about the 2015 Dare to Care Food Bank Agency of the Year, check out their website!  Check out photos from our visit.
