Bill Moos makes a nice gesture with some of his unsold tickets

After the tragic events at Freeman High School last week, WSU Athletics is doing its part to help the healing process. It was announced Thursday, that fans from the surrounding area of Rockford, Washington will be able to get free tickets for WSU’s game against Nevada on Saturday.

"The events that occurred at Freeman High School last week hit very close to home for many in our area and Washington State Athletics would like to have those affected as our guests," Athletic Director Bill Moos said. "We know that many hearts are still heavy, so we would like to provide some relief by offering an opportunity to enjoy Cougar Football this weekend."

Tickets for the game are not in very high demand, but at least some of the unsold seats will go to a good cause. Anyone with a student or faculty ID from Freeman High School or a Rockford/Valley Ford drivers license can pick up tickets from the ticket office on Saturday.

You may remember that this isn’t the first time WSU has given tickets away to a community going through a tragedy. In 2015, victims of the eastern Washington wildfire could claim free tickets for the game against Portland State. Hopefully, the fans get to see a better result this time.
