Sept. 27, 2005
Seminole Uprising – a student pep rally presented by Seminole Student Boosters has been rescheduled for Wednesday, September 28, 2005 at 8 p.m. in Dick Howser Stadium. The event, which was postponed due to Hurricane Katrina, will focus on recognizing all of the athletic teams and coaches – especially the undefeated football team. The pep rally will also serve as a teaching tool to learn all of FSU’s cheers, chants and songs.
The overall theme for the evening is to make “MAGIC” – an acronym which stands for “Make A Greater Individual Commitment.” This past summer, the FSU football coaches and players decided that their goal for the season would be to make “MAGIC” on the field. Student Boosters is calling for all students to do the same and make a greater individual commitment to FSU and its athletics by attending the event.
“Each player has made an individual commitment to play each quarter and each down like if it were their last,” said Ramsey Krupilis, Seminole Student Booster vice president and creator of the event. “This is their commitment to themselves and to us – their fans. We need for the student body to make MAGIC and attend this event.”
Gates open at 7 p.m. for pre-show festivities. Students will be able to watch some of the best high lights from each sport, peruse the tables of student organizations and intramural sports and receive a bag of free pop corn with a purchase of any food or drink item. Those who arrive early will receive posters of the various sports teams.
“Student Boosters hosted a pep rally very similar to this last year,” said Allin Hedge, Seminole Student Boosters member at large, “but only the athletes and coaches attended. It had so many rave reviews from the athletes, staff and administrators that we decided to expand it this year to the entire student body.”
Coach Bowden will be in attendance and will address the players and fans about breaking the six year curse against Miami, the win against the highly ranked Boston College Eagles and his thoughts about the upcoming Syracuse game.
The Marching Chiefs will play a major role in this pep rally as they will perform a portion of their Brasstacular concert. The songs played will range from our all time favorites to the latest songs played on the radio.
“This pep rally comes at a time when both our football and women’s soccer team are having incredible seasons,” said Kelly Alvarez, Seminole Student Booster president. “We as students need to unite and celebrate the Seminole triumphs and victories we have achieved thus far and recognize the athletes that continue to make FSU a premier power-house in athletics.”
The entire student body, administrators and staff are invited to attend. Seating is based on a first come first serve basis. The event will be canceled in lieu of rain.
Seminole Student Boosters is the largest organization on campus. Members receive priority tickets to home and away games, coach and player interaction, tours of the athletic facilities, t-shirt, car tag and yearly 10% apparel discount card from Bill’s Bookstore.
