FREDERICKTOWN -- Under perfect weather conditions the 18th annual Fredericktown-Willie Davis golf outing took place on Saturday, July 10, at the Chapel Hill Golf Course.

Brad Mast and Jim Davis, the event organizers, reported that the outing was the “best ever” with 34 teams and 130 golfers participating in a scramble format. While presenting multiple awards and donated door prizes, Mast and Davis thanked all the volunteers, the golfers and the 28-hole sponsors saying that 100% of the proceeds would go to support the 3rd through 6th grade youth football program.

Several prizes were awarded to participants for longest drives, closet to the pin, longest puts along with door prizes donated by the sponsors. Casey Ewers led the winning foursome with their team generously donating 100% of their prize money back to the kids, simply saying “someone did it for us.”

During the steak dinner and awards ceremony, the crowd enjoyed motivating remarks from Fredericktown football coach Will Hartley, and Ben Burns, a current Capital University football coach who played his youth and high school football at Fredericktown.

Davis concluded by saying that information on next year’s golf outing, along with information on team schedules, scholarships and more are posted at Willie Davis Youth Football - Fredericktown.
