More than 30 players from the team were helping lay down rock for New Hope For Families in Duluth. the Hunters are helping build their new playground.

The team has stayed active this summer pushing themselves both physically and mentally. Activities like these help them give back to their community but also grow closer as a team.

"Part of serving the community is understanding that we're not at the center of the universe. We want to do good for others and at the same time get to know each other outside of football," explained Duluth Denfeld football head coach Erik Lofald. "A lot of these kids don't hang out outside of practice, so it's a great way to build your team cohesion up."
