Wofford has one of the NFL's finest training facilities, hosting the team in the school's 60,000-square-foot Richardson Physical Activities Building.

To help keep athletes safe and performing at their best during the hot summer months, The Gatorade Company, a division of PepsiCo (NYSE: PEP), has once again joined forces with the NFL to educate athletes, parents and coaches about heat-related illness and the importance of proper hydration and nutrition before, during and after practices and games. The Beat the Heat program is built on communicating heat-illness prevention and treatment techniques, including the four downs of heat safety.
