Our Stingers football team
became movie stars recently, when they were extras in a Hollywood movie
called The Sum of All Fears. Their role required them
to stage an NFL Superbowl game at the Olympic Stadium.
The movie, which is based on a Tom Clancy novel and stars Ben Affleck
and Morgan Freeman, ends in a nuclear explosion, but of course, that was
just special effects. Members of the Montreal Alouettes and Toronto Argonauts
were also involved in the film shoot.
Athletics has launched a new scholarship fund, the Father OBrien
Endowment, thanks to an initial, anonymous donation of $100,000.
This will enable the department to give five $1,000 scholarships a year.
Next season, all fourth- and fifth-year athletes on the football team
will receive a $1,000 award.
Director Harry Zarins said that the five-year goal is to give all of the
football players in good academic standing a $1,000 scholarship.
