Big Rapids, Mich. - The Ferris State University football team put its finishing touches on fall preseson camp on Friday (Aug. 24) as the Bulldogs held their annual media and photo day activities at Top Taggart Field.
A variety of individual and group photos were taken at the stadium, including the official 2012 team photo. Additionally, several FSU players took part in media interviews, including a live show from the Wheeler Pavilion broadcast booth on the flagship home of the Bulldog Sports Network, Sunny 97.3 FM.
After the media day activites, team members also spent the afternoon assisting incoming students and their families move into campus residence halls as part of the "Bulldogs In Action" initiative. They were joined by other Ferris State varsity athletics programs, including the Bulldog women's soccer along with men's and women's basketball teams.
