Learning the rules Bradley T. Robinson, a manufacturing engineering technology student from West Chester, volunteers his time each Friday to help instruct pupils on game rules during Sheridan Elementary School’s primary and intermediate recess times. At left, Robinson president of Penn College’s Student Athlete Advisory Committee and a member of the cross-country team teaches pupils the rules of playing football at the school, one of which includes no tackling. Penn College Wildcats have a history of working with Williamsport Area School District youngsters; in a program to resume next spring, student-athletes often visit Sheridan classrooms as part of the Read Across America effort.
