ECU Football players “do a little dance” with the Special Olympics

On Thursday, October 27th, 7 ECU football players: Emmanuel Davis, Drew Gentry, Antonio Allison, Joe Womack, Stewart Hinson, Tré Robinson, and Josh Clark attended the Special Olympics of Pitt County’s annual Halloween costume party.  The event was held at C.M. Eppes High School where the players socialized with Greenville’s special needs population.  The players joined in the festivities through dancing, taking pictures, and partaking in a party train around the dance floor.  As the party ended, the players helped clean up and take down decorations.  The players were offered many thanks and signs of appreciation throughout the night for their attendance.  The party was a great success as seen through the smiles and excitement shown from all participants.
