DURHAM, N.C. - For seven days in May, 13 members of the Duke football program visited Guatemala as part of a service trip with Habitat for Humanity.
Gabe Brandner, Ben Wyatt, Brandon Hill, Elijah Deveaux, Koby Quansah, Daniel Karlin, Parker Boehme, Antone Williams, Daniel Helm, Scott Jones, Kevin Gehsmann, James Mitchell and Will Cole took part in the trip to Central America to build homes and stoves.
Blue Devil Network caught up with Brandner and Wyatt when they returned to talk about their experience in the country.
"It definitely gave us a chance to make a difference in the lives of many," Brandner said of the trip.
Wyatt added how much of a factor head coach David Cutcliffe made on the trip.
"It really shows how special the program is," Wyatt said. "Coach Cutcliffe allowed us to take this trip and was a really integral part in getting everyone ready. It is very, very unique going to a third-world country. That is not something every coach or program would allow. We're very thankful to be part of a program that allows us to take a trip like this."
