DURHAM, N.C. - With a week between the end of the spring semester and the beginning of the first summer session, 13 members of the Duke football program will spend those seven days in Guatemala with Habitat for Humanity. 

Gabe Brandner, Ben Wyatt, Brandon Hill, Elijah Deveaux, Koby Quansah, Daniel KarlinParker Boehme, Antone Williams, Daniel Helm, Scott Jones, Kevin Gehsmann, James Mitchell and Will Cole will all take part in the trip to Central America from May 6-13. 

Last summer the Blue Devils spent time with the Durham Habitat for Humanity chapter to work on a local building project. 

"For me, this trip is a thank you to Duke football for these past five years," Brandner said. "For a program that's given so much and taught me many life lessons, I wanted to coordinate a trip to give teammates, coaches and administrators an opportunity to serve abroad. It is my hope that was a result of our time in Guatemala, we will further deepen the meaning of #DukeGang and strengthen our relationship with Durham Habitat."

Habitat for Humanity was founded on the conviction that every man, woman and child should have a simple, durable place to live in dignity and safety, and that decent shelter in decent communities should be a matter of conscience and action for all.
