On Aug. 22, the 14th annual ASU Sun Devil Football Kickoff Luncheon takes place at the Tempe Mission Palms Hotel from 12:30 – 2:30. Open to the public, it features a talk by Head coach Todd Graham about the season’s plans and expectations, along with a question and answer session with star players conducted by “Voice of the Sun Devils” Tim Healey and Rose Bowl winning QB Jeff Van Raaphorst.

Sparky, the ASU Spirit Squad and the Dixie Devils will be on hand to set the energetic tone of the luncheon. Fans will hear from the coaches and players not only from the stage, but also at each of the luncheon tables which host a member of the team during the event. It’s a unique opportunity for local fans to show their Sun Devil spirit while speaking one-on-one with the athletes and coaches.

The Tempe Chamber of Commerce, ASU Sun Devil Club and ASU Alumni Association will present the event.
