FORT COLLINS, Colo. - To the thousands of Colorado State volleyball fans that flock to Moby Arena for each of the Rams' home matches, the players in uniform may be heroes.
After all, the players put in countless hours at practice honing their skills to showcase for the Rams' fans. And, much more often than not, the CSU volleyball program emerges as the victor in battles against the best programs from around the country, not to mention MWC and regional rivals.
But the CSU volleyball team got a first-hand glimpse of what it's like to be a true hero, when 14 players and Head Coach Tom Hilbert visited the Poudre Fire Authority Fire Station No. 1 for a chance to meet with and learn from some of Fort Collins' bravest.
The event, scheduled in the days leading up to this weekend's "Local Heroes Day" on Sept. 11, gave the Rams an opportunity to meet and thank just a few of the firefighters from Poudre Fire Authority.
In addition to a tour of the fire house's living quarters and training facilities, and of course a ride down the fire pole, the Rams posed for photos and were able to try on and use some of the equipment used every day by the brave men and women of PFA.
