TEAMMATES: Honorary coach Patrick Karr, 6, of Rochester and Yellowjacket linebacker Edward Dauphin ’11 of New Hartford, N.Y., prepare to walk to the coin toss before the start of the this fall’s Courage Bowl in downtown Rochester. The annual game pits Rochester and St. John Fisher College in a crosstown rivalry that serves as a fundraiser for Camp Good Days and Special Times, a Rochester-area nonprofit organization that offers summer camping experiences and other activities for children facing cancer and other life-threatening illnesses. Each year, several campers like Patrick serve as honorary coaches and cheerleaders, attending practices and joining the teams on the field. This fall, the game was played in Marina Auto Stadium, a 14,000-seat venue that’s home to Rochester’s professional soccer team. After pulling ahead with two late second-quarter touchdowns, the Cardinals defeated the Yellowjackets, 49–21.
