Football Assistant Coaches Help Raise Research Funds

R LogoTERRE HAUTE, IND. -- Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology football assistant coaches Chris Scheidt and Brian White recently joined more than 300 coaches for the fourth annual Lauren´s First and Goal Football Camp at two sites in June.

On June 2 at Lafayette College in Pennsylania, White joined nearly 2,100 high school student-athletes attending the camp, which raised more than $104,000 for pediatric brain tumor research.

On June 22 at Otterbein University in Ohio, Scheidt and White were part of a gathering including 475 high school players from 197 schools in 15 states.  This event raised $18,000 for the effort.

The camp is the primary fundraiser for Lauren´s First and Goal Foundation, with all proceeds going directly to its mission of providing financial support for brain tumor research and cancer services, offering financial and emotional support to families living with pediatric cancer, and increasing awareness of the disease.

During the camps, players received instruction in a variety of offensive and defensive skills from college coaches from around the country.

White begins his third season on the Rose-Hulman coaching staff and his second season as offensive coordinator in 2013.  He also serves as the team's recruiting coordinator and the offensive line coach.  Scheidt will start his second season as Rose-Hulman's wide receivers coach this fall.
