WHITEWATER (WKOW) -- The UW-Whitewater football team understands the importance of building strong bonds. That's why the Warhawks have joined other teams on campus in reaching out to the surrounding community. Most recently, the Warhawks played bingo with residents at Fairhaven Senior Services.
UW-Whitewater head coach Kevin Bullis says the relationship with Fairhaven began years ago and includes multiple teams in the athletic department. His team has made a yearly tradition of coming to play bingo, while also inviting residents to come watch a football practice in fall.
"Because each year we come back and they visit us once, we visit them, there's a bond. People and the players get to know the seniors. Even many of the classes that they have will come over and do types of things. It's really a great university connection."
