The Miner Caravan comes to the East side of El Paso this weekend! Join coach Dana Dimel and 10 of the Miners’ marquee football players at Showtyme Sports Grill on Saturday (June 25) from 11 am – 2 pm. Showtyme Sports Grill, former Miner star Aaron Jones’ new restaurant and bar, is located at 2106 N. Zaragoza Road.
Also expected to attend from the Miner football program are junior defensive end Praise Amaewhule, senior running back Ronald Awatt, sophomore running back Deion Hankins, junior quarterback Gavin Hardison, senior safety Ty’Reke James, junior offensive lineman Elijah Klein, junior offensive lineman Andrew Meyer, sophomore punter Josh Sloan, senior defensive end Jadrian Taylor and senior defensive end Deylon Williams.
The Miner Caravan series is an initiative of UTEP’s 915 Campaign. One of the goals of the 915 Campaign is to sell out UTEP’s first football game of the season versus North Texas on Aug. 27. Capacity in the Sun Bowl is 45,971, and over 30,000 tickets have already been issued for the game. UTEP hasn’t sold out a game in the Sun Bowl since 2008.
Fans can purchase $9.15 tickets to the August 27 football game at each of the Miners’ Caravan stops. Also, fans can spend $20 at the Caravan on Saturday and receive a ticket to the game plus a commemorative orange 915 t-shirt.
Future Caravan stops are the El Paso Chihuahuas game versus Round Rock (July 16), Cielo Vista Mall (July 23) and Camp Cohen Water Park (July 30).
