ASU reportedly raises enough money to guarantee training at Rim Country camp
The Arizona State University Sun Devils football team will reportedly officially announce its return to Camp Tontozona sometime today, June 1, at a press conference on the school’s campus in Tempe. Although ASU spokesperson Kevin Miniefield, himself a former Sun Devil football star, wouldn’t say officially the return is a done deal, all indications are the school has raised the $150,000 it needs to return to the scenic mountain retreat. “Fund-raising is going very well,” Miniefield said. “We are optimistic that we will reach our goal.” On May 23, ASU announced it had raised just under $133,000.
