Guests will have a chance to go into meeting rooms with the Huskie football coaches. Attendees will receive a unique NIU football-themed gift. There will also be a silent auction with exclusive memorabilia.

The Xs and Os with the Pros clinic costs $125.

The space for one-on-one interaction is limited. Attendees will have to register by calling the Huskie Athletic Fund at 815-753-7225 or e-mail for more information.
