UW-River Falls junior defensive back Alex Adams, center, leads youngsters from the River Falls Youth Football Association as they yell "One-two-three --bacon!" and break a huddle after Adams and his teammates practiced with the group last Tuesday at Ramer Field. When Adams asked the kids what they wanted to yell they responded, "bacon!" This is the second straight year the Falcons have hosted the youth football players for a practice and autograph session. The UWRF football team had a bye last week but returns to action this Saturday by hosting UW-Stout under the lights at David Smith Stadium at Ramer Field at 7 p.m. It will be the first home night game for the Falcons since 2006.
