Friday, August 31, 2018---First 2018 Football "Jock" Rally

Trojan Candy arrived early at the Heritage Hall patio for the first "Jock" Rally on the afternoon before our football game versus UNLV. I was able to get my favorite picture/video taking spot on the corner atop the brick wall. I need some elevation, because I am only 4'11" tall.

Spirit of Troy
At 5:00 p.m. the Spirit of Troy marched to the cadence of the drums into the patio from their own practice in the Loker track stadium.
