NEO to Honor Six at Military Appreciation Night

Thursday, Sept. 1, 2016 – NEO will honor six American heroes at the annual Military Appreciation Night football game to be held on Sept. 10, 2016. Rick Aldridge, Rex Burtrum, Max Todd Buzzard, Leonard Finnell, Bob Hayes, and Rear Admiral Jeff Trussler have made incredible sacrifices in defense of the United States of America, and NEO would like to invite the community as we honor them during halftime of the game.

“This is one of our most popular games as we pay tribute to the members of our community who have dedicated their services to our country,” said Dale Patterson, NEO athletic director. “We received numerous nominations and it was very tough to narrow the selection down to six individuals. To show our appreciation for our men and women of all armed services, we want to invite all active and retired military personnel to come to the game as our guest.”

Prior to the game, NEO will host a hot dog bar tailgate at 4:30 p.m. outside of Red Robertson Stadium. Cost of attendance is $6 for non-students, and tailgaters can choose from a variety of hot dog sausages and toppings, along with a drink and dessert.

The American Legion Color Guard will present the flag for the National Anthem and the Military Appreciation game against Trinity Valley Community College will kick off at 6 p.m. Tickets will be available at the gate for $5 for general admission and $10 for reserved seating. Active and retired military personnel will receive free admission to the game with ID.
