— Members of the Garner Civitan Mitey-Mite Blue Trojans ran onto the field with their counterparts from N.C. State during the Wolfpack's home game against Florida State Oct. 16.

The boys, ages seven to nine, wore official replica Wolfpack jerseys made possible by a grant from the NCAA's Youth Initiative, in conjunction with Pop Warner, Russell Athletic and Wilson Sporting Goods.

The team participated in the coin flip, standing at the center of the stadium with N.C. State captains, then watched the game from the stands.

    Great pics that bring back lots of memories! I had the chance to play a whole midget league football game prior to an NC State game there in about 1968 or 69 with the Bulldogs versus a team from Charlotte or Gastonia. Was neat playing on the "Big" field! Oh, and by the way, the Pack plays football at Carter Finley, not in Reynolds Coliseum as caption 3 states.
