On Martin Luther King Jr. Day, the CUA football team spent the day off giving back to the community by participating in the renovation of local Theodore Roosevelt Senior High School.  The football team along with more than five hundred volunteers teamed up with City Year, a national service program dedicated to changing the world.  The day was filled with hard work and much needed improvements as volunteers covered graffiti, rebuilt benches and painted murals. The football team was able to use their artistic skills in painting several murals in the hallways leading up to the gymnasium with sports figures such as Muhammad Ali, Michael Jordan, and the late Washington Redskin Sean Taylor.  In addition, the team managed to paint and decorate hallways throughout the school with the help of all the coaches.  The service day turned out to be a huge success as the school had been given a facelift thanks to the teamwork of hundreds of volunteers and sponsors.
