The Mansfield University sprint football teamed up with the Wellsboro House & Brewery to Sack Cancer throughout the 2019 season.

The Wellsboro House and owner Chris Kozuhowski donated $25 for every Mountie defensive sack to St. Jude Children’s Hospital and is matching that total as a donation to the football program.

The Mountaineers finished with 20 sacks on the year, raising $500 for both St. Jude and Mountaineer football.

Founded by Danny Thomas is 1962, St. Jude has been leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases for over half a century. Visit stjude.org to get involved or to learn more about the organization.

Proud supporters of Mansfield Athletics, Chris and Laura Kozuhowski opened the Wellsboro House on July 17, 2008. Located a short drive west of Mansfield, the Wellsboro House Restaurant & Brewery is your game day destination for great food and drinks. The restaurant offers a wide variety of great meals along with brewery tours. Visit TheWellsboroHouse.com for more information.
