The 2nd annual Blue Devil Blitz fundraising campaign is now is full swing with football players and campaign supporters placing blue and gold tridents, on the front lawns of local residents and businesses with the announcement, “You’ve Been Blitzed!”

The campaign encourages community members to donate to the football program and to “blitz” others whom they think will support the program with their donations.

“The support from the community last year was unprecedented during my time at Merced College,” said head football coach Bob Casey.  “The generous donations from our supporters created many more opportunities our student-athletes."

Last year, the campaign raised more than $10,000 during its one-month campaign.

“This funding helps us purchase things that we have struggled with providing in recent years, such as replacing older equipment,” Casey said.  “It will also help with costs associated with transportation.”
