Countryside welcomes US Army, Tampa Bay Bucs for combined Campus Tour stop

2019, Tampa

The 2019 FNF Tampa Bay Campus Tour continued Sept. 27 with a stop at Countryside High for a game against Largo. The road team from Largo came out on top, 42-31.

This game served as the fifth of eight stops with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers during the fall season. It also served as the second of five stops on the US Army Campus Tour.

The FNF Tampa Bay Campus Tour staff collaborated with the Bucs to engage fans with giveaways and interactive activities. We distributed hundreds of Bucs prizes as well as over 100 copies of the 2019 edition of FNF Tampa Bay. Fans who wore Bucs gears received prize packs filled with one of each of the giveaway products, which included hats, t-shirts, lanyards, and FNF Tampa Bay magazines.

As part of the US Army tour, FNF and two US Army recruiters educated teachers and football fans about the March2Success program, which provides an online study program to help students prepare for standardized tests, improve school work and review materials. The program is also designed to provide tools for educators and parents to track and encourage their students.

More than 20 educators gathered for the luncheon, which was organized by Countryside Assistant Principal Erin Overall.

The FNF Tampa Bay Campus Tour’s partnership with the US Army will include five stops in the region, beginning with a visit to Palmetto High in August. At each stop, FNF Tampa Bay staff and US Army recruiters will host a luncheon for teachers and administrators, providing our partners with an opportunity to share information about the March 2 Success program. FNF supplies subs, chips, drinks and dessert for each teacher in attendance.

The US Army’s FNF Tampa Bay Campus Tour includes a stop at each of these schools for the Friday night football atmosphere. FNF Tampa Bay staff sets up a tent and table by the entrance to each school’s field. The interactive and engaging experience with the US Army recruiters is tailored to the football audience with halftime promotions, give-aways, announcements and presentations.

Aug. 30 — Manatee at Palmetto
