Hurricanes great and University of Miami Sports Hall of Fame member Charles Johnson will serve as host of the UMSHoF's sixth annual Celebrity Bowling Tournament, on Monday, Feb. 27, from 6-9 p.m., at Splitsville in the Shops at Sunset Place in South Miami.
"I'm looking forward to hosting the upcoming UMSHoF Bowling tournament this year," said Johnson, a four-time Gold Glove winning catcher with the Florida Marlins. "It's always a good thing to support student-athletes that have gone to UM. It is part of the reason I started Catch This Academy, to give back to the community that supported me."
Canes fans can bowl with some of their favorite former Canes all-stars in a relaxing evening of family fun, food and Hurricanes camaraderie. Other Hurricane greats who have attended past bowling tournaments include Reggie Wayne, Clinton Portis, Santana Moss, Bubba Franks, Brett Romberg, KC Jones, Randal Hill, Eric Brown, Tracy Kerdyk, Darrin Smith and Heisman Trophy winner Gino Torretta.
