Shoeless for a good cause

HAMMOND - Southeastern Louisiana University Head Coach Ron Roberts went shoeless during pre-game preps for the football game against South Dakota State Saturday evening (Sept. 14) in support of the Samaritan's Feet International's Million Shoes Initiative. Both Roberts and South Dakota Head Coach John Stiegelmeier were barefoot in honor of the cause, which donates new shoes to impoverished children and adults around the world. Since 2003, Samaritan's Fee and its partners, including Sketchers and BOBS Shoes, have distributed over 4.5 million pairs of shoes worldwide.
