OPSU head football coach Russell Gaskamp started the project last year as a fundraiser to help supply the players with gear and equipment needed in excess of what the budget provides. Items such as game shoes, sweat/travel suits, t-shirts, hats, and game gloves will be purchased with funds contributed.

The "Work-a-thon" took place on Saturday, April 5 in various spots throughout Goodwell. The team split up into work crews supervised by the coaches, and were given projects to complete at each site. Over 80 student-athletes volunteered six hours of their time to this effort.

Gaskamp is proud of his team and thankful to the players and coaches for their service saying, "What an awesome opportunity to give back to the community of Goodwell and raise money to give back to the players for stuff they deserve."

Donations are still being accepted. Aggie fans are able to personally sponsor individual players by going to the following link and selecting their player of choice and entering the desired amount they wish to contribute : .

Those interested in mailing their donation can make checks payable to: Oklahoma Panhandle State University and mail to the Football Office, Attn: Jesse Thompson, P.O. Box 430, Goodwell, OK 73939. For more information please contact Coach Gaskamp at 580-349-1332 or by email at
