Illinois College Football Team gets to work

Annual volunteer day at WIYC a success

By Ed Anderson

“A burden heavy to one is borne lightly by many.”

Those words were an inspiration for Illinois College Football Coach Ray DeFrisco and his team on Sunday, April 3. The team was making their annual trip to the Western Illinois Youth Camp (WIYC), located at 2244 4H Club Ln. in Jacksonville, to help prepare for this year’s camping season as they have for many years.

The long list of tasks included cleaning windows, moving mattresses, removing downed trees, cleaning sheds and mopping floors. The team split into groups and in two hours had accomplished every task and more. Their attitude and efforts are an inspiration and provide an invaluable service for the camp.
