CEDAR CITY, Utah — Southern Utah’s Spring Football schedule came to a close on Saturday as the program hosted Kids Day presented by Intermountain Healthcare.

Kids Day serves as Southern Utah’s spring game, as the team went head-to-head in a number of series, and invited fans to participate in several activities on the field.

“We played a pretty good scrimmage,” SUU head coach Demario Warren said. “No turnovers, no penalties, so that’s a good sign.”

Warren went on to say that this type of event means a lot to him and the team.

“It’s fun to get the kids involved, get the fans involved, and we just want to show our appreciation to Cedar City and the Southern Utah community,” he said.

The Thunderbird coaching staff also presented the team with their 2017 Big Sky Championship rings on Saturday prior to the scrimmage.

“I just wanted them to have a moment to remember, and hopefully that happened today,” Warren said. “It was our second one in three years, and we talked about what our next goals are. We want to win a National Championship, and if they continue to work as hard as they do and as diligently as they do, I think that’s a real obtainable goal.”

With Spring Football in the books, the Thunderbirds will turn their attention to August 28th when they start their Big Sky title defense against North Alabama in Cedar City.
