The Spirit of Game Day

“Hail to the Towson Tigers, were true to the black and gold ” is what can be heard from Tiger fans in Johnny Unitas Stadium on game day at Towson University.

Towson football is in Division I in the NCAA, with a tough schedule. The games are held at Johnny Unitas Stadium which can hold over 11,000 spectators. This stadium has concession stands, a spirit shop and restrooms to accommodate tiger fans.

Game day starts off with most fans tailgating to get ready for the big game. No matter which tailgate you attend the colors black and gold, and tiger spirit are all around. Tailgate are divided up between parking lots for students, fans and visitors.

The game opens up with a performance from Towson’s marching band, playing favorites as Maryland’s State song and the national anthem. After the band’s performances, they form a “T” and play Towson’s fight song for the football team to run out to. The team rushes out of the tiger following the cheerleaders running out Towson’s flags.

The stands are filled with Tiger fans on both sections. Throughout the game you can find Doc, the band, pom squad and the cheerleaders pumping up the crowd. Fans fill the stadium cheering the fight song . As Rob Ambrose Towson’s head coach tries to lead his players to a victory.

Without all the support and details, game day at Towson would be incomplete. The spirit of game day relies on the players, coaches, staff, spirit groups and students.
