ETBU Hosts Field Day for Marshall ISD WECC Students

MARSHALL NEWS MESSENGER (10/29/15) - Twenty, 3- to 4-year-olds file in a circle around East Texas Baptist University kinesiology student Michael Coyne as he holds a green ball over his head symbolizing a "green light" in a ongoing game of red light/green light.

"Red light! Stop!" Coyne, a junior, shouts as he trades his green ball for a red one. "Now, shake!"

Coyne puts down the red ball and dances, each child joining in with him. 

All throughout the game, Coyne remains dressed in his Halloween costume, a full-sized hot dog with mustard.
