Coach Taggart's Touchdown Readers - Year 2

Reading tracker
With summer around the corner, FAU Athletics is looking forward to the second year of Coach Taggart’s Touchdown Readers, our summer reading program endorsed by head football coach Willie Taggart.
Coach Taggart's Touchdown Readers is designed to encourage elementary and middle school students (K-8) to continue reading over the summer. With a goal of reading four (4) grade-appropriate books, the program’s goal is to provide parents and teachers a way to incentivize reading outside of the school year.
Students who complete the program will earn two (2) tickets to an FAU football game for the upcoming season. Participants in attendance will also receive in-game recognition, the opportunity to take photos on the field at FAU Stadium following the game, a Coach Taggart's Touchdown Readers t-shirt, and a certificate of completion signed by Coach Taggart.
