Two-Minute Drill

Every Friday at 7:31 a.m. and 5:18 p.m., Nate Saverino highlights players, coaches and more in the Two-Minute Drill. Keep up with the Redhawks on KRCU.

In light of the recent shootings in the United States, Southeast Missouri State University head football coach Tom Matukewicz felt compelled to do something.

Matukewicz immediately turned to his player-driven leadership council for ideas and Jackson native Dante Vandeven was quick to suggest a charity flag football event that would involve Southeast’s football team and local law enforcement personnel. Not a game that would pit Cops against Redhawks, but an event that would bring an entire community together.

Southeast Missouri State University

Southeast Missouri State University freshman midfielder Esmeralda Gonzales is used to scoring goals. 

Before joining the Redhawks, Gonzales is the national high school record holder for goals scored in both boy’s and girl’s soccer – she scored 316 goals during her outstanding four-year career at South Hills High School in Fort Worth, Texas.
