Community leaders including Akron mayor Don Plusquellic are planning an event at InfoCision Stadium to show LeBron James how much the community wants him to stay.
LeBron Appreciation Day will be Saturday, June 19. The organizers are hoping James, himself, will show up. The event even has a Web site (but turn down your computer volume before visiting it). Sponsors include the city, the university, InfoCision, Acme, FirstMerit Bank and the Greater Akron Chamber of Commerce.
This is good exposure for Akron football program, as this event will attract a lot of outsiders to the stadium.
Deryn Bowser (Arizona) and Andre Jones (Kansas City) have signed one-year contracts with NFL teams. They must still make the team in fall camp to be included on the roster.
