Cougar Football Gives Free Admission to Firefighters, Police
The College of the Canyons is offering free admission to firefighters and police officers and their families to the Saturday, Nov. 3 Cougar football game, as a thank you for efforts provided during the rampant wildfires that plagued the Santa Clarita Valley last week.
"There were so many people who were affected by last week's fires," COC head football coach Garett Tujague said. "We wanted to make sure that we acknowledged the first responders who so diligently worked to keep our valley safe. This is only a small token of our appreciation."
Firefighters and police officers must show proper identification at the ticket booth to receive admission for themselves and family members.
The Cougars kick off against L.A. Harbor at 7 p.m. on Saturday evening in the last regular season home game. Canyons is in a tie for first place with Bakersfield College and holds a 7-1 overall record and is 5-0 in conference play.
