Colorado football players volunteer to feed rescuers, families displaced by flooding

BOULDER, Colo. — Colorado football players decided to help feed rescuers and families displaced by flooding after their game was canceled on Saturday.

The team was supposed to play Fresno State at Folsom Field, but when historic rains led to massive flooding around Boulder, the school postponed the game and the athletic department teamed up to serve food to flood victims and first responders at the stadium instead.

According to the Boulder Daily Camera, Colorado football players and coaches, joined by other student-athletes and athletic department staffers, served lunch to about 800 residents of married and family housing and first responders on the suite level at Folsom Field early Saturday afternoon.

Televisions and the stadium big screens showed other college games around the country as the Buffs served up hamburgers, hot dogs, brats, cookies and chips and other game-day staples.
