All you guys need to be proud, even those that don’t get to travel (as was the case with me). You all contribute in that little way that helps to make the team what it is. Go Noles!

Hello, my name is Will and I’m in the military currently stationed in Iraq. I was having a bad morning until I saw the headlines on the website about winning the national championship, it’s amazing how my sadness turned into happiness, because of what you athletes accomplished through all your hard work and dedication to your coaches and trainers. Thank you and good luck in the future. GO NOLES. I was a track standout some years ago from a nearby school, (Chipley High) so I know what it takes.

I cannot tell you how great it was to watch all of you go out with everything on the line and kick ass. To realize that we were not even in the top 5 when the CBS broadcast started and then to win by over 20 points is truly remarkable. You have launched our track and field program to a bright future. We Seminoles are so proud of you all.
