Athletics launches ‘More Than A Game’

This year, Longwood athletics is taking Lancer fans off the court, outside the box score and inside the lives of some of the school’s approximately 300 student-athletes.

Titled “More Than A Game,” the campaign comprises feature stories, videos and player specific schedule posters that tell the inspiring stories of young men and women who have pushed themselves beyond their accomplishments on the playing field.

Longwood student-athletes are more than soccer players, more than golfers, more than point guards and pitchers. One student-athlete is a volunteer firefighter. Another has blossomed from a timid freshman into an effective team captain. The entire men’s basketball team traveled to the Dominican Republic on a service trip that included volunteering at an orphanage and a daycare center.

The stories are varied and moving, demonstrating that these student-athletes are at Longwood for more than just a game. To find out more, visit MoreThanAGame
