Seminole Student Boosters is proud to present the second Annual “Seminole Uprising,” featuring a special appearance by Coach Bobby Bowden and the Florida State football team, on Wednesday, August 30 in Tully Gym. The event, hosted by Seminole Boosters, Inc. Executive Director Charlie Barnes, is celebrating 155 years of unconquered spirit. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the event will kick off at 7:00 p.m.

“We are excited about the student pep rally to kick off the school year,” said Senior Associate Athletics Director Kim Record. “It is a great opportunity to recognize all 19 athletic teams, especially our national champion men’s track and field team, as well as get students excited about our season-opener at Miami.”

All student-athletes and coaches will be in attendance and Coach Bowden will get things started with a few comments. Tallahassee Mayor John Marks will give special recognition to the men’s track and field team, which earned its first national championship in June. The Marching Chiefs and the Florida State cheerleaders will perform throughout the evening, showcasing Seminole spirit and many of the school traditions.

“The event will introduce students to Florida State traditions, athletic facilities and programs, and the athletes and coaches,” said Seminole Uprising coordinator and Student Boosters Vice President Joe Mahshie. “We really want the students to gain an appreciation for what our school was founded on and the traditions we uphold.”

Seminole Uprising, which is dedicated to promoting and fostering school spirit, will also provide students with the opportunity to interact with student-athletes and coaches.

Seminole Student Boosters is the largest student organization on campus. Members receive priority tickets to home and away games, coach and player interaction, tours of the athletic facilities, a T-shirt, a car tag and a yearly 10 percent discount card from Bill’s Bookstore.
