What was your motivation to purchase season tickets for the 2014 Aggie Football season?
"Davis is home for me now, so the Aggies are my home team. I don't have any direct connection with the team but that's definitely not the only reason to attend games. As a southerner, I grew up loving football. You didn't need any other reason to be a fan -- you always supported your home team."
What are you looking forward to the most this season?"
I'm really looking forward to my five-year old son, Alexander, feeling the excitement of being at a college football game. He is a member of the Jr. Aggie Club and can't wait to run out on the field before home games. In the south, college football takes center stage and watching the game is definitely a family affair. I want my son to have those same great experiences and the love of the game that I've had, so I'm excited about spending Aggie Football Saturdays with him."
"They deserve an audience!"
"College athletes compete at a level that most people don't ever experience or understand. What makes the Aggies really impressive is that these guys are going to school at a nationally ranked university at the same time. They're doing two really hard things, really well. They deserve an audience!"
