Being a senior at George Fox has been great so far, and to top it all off, our football season has begun! On Saturday, Sept. 6, students gathered to attend the university’s first football game in 46 years! Hundreds of students showed up days before to pick up their tickets; no one was going to miss out on their chance to see history being made.
Being in the stands was a crazy event. There were faces painted and even a few full bodies. We all waited for the moment we could cheer on our team as they came running onto the new field.
George Fox has added two new sports in the last year. Women’s lacrosse played their first ever game last spring with the same support and enthusiasm from Bruin fans.
I am lucky enough to be a part of the lacrosse team at Fox and to be supported by the students and faculty. There was much excitement and many nerves before our first lacrosse game last year, but with the same adrenaline and support from our George Fox community, we were able to have a fantastic game and season.
I can only imagine the same for our football team, it’s going to be an amazing season to watch them grow. With the next home game being Homecoming weekend, students and families will only continue to do an amazing job cheering on our sports teams. They sure do love their Bruins.
