United States Military personnel were recognized at Smith-Wall Stadium Friday night before the game between the Queen City Bulldogs and the Hooks Hornets.  2017 Queen City graduate, Rylie Price Purtle who is currently serving in the U.S. Air Force and retired U.S. Navy Veteran, Michael Lee joined the coin toss at the center of the field as Honorary Captains.

The Bulldogs donned American flag cleat covers and helmet decals to honor those who have chosen to serve our country. Athletic Director and former U.S. Marine, Eric Droddy believes in the importance of teaching the students of Queen City to value these men and women and their loyalty to our country.  “Military Appreciation Night is a simple way for us to say ‘Thank You’ for their service and dedication,” said Coach Droddy.
