Jaguar fans pack the amphitheater to cheer on the team.

On Thursday evening the University of South Alabama hosted its first-ever pep rally in support of the football team which lasted about an hour with an autograph session with the players afterward. The amphitheater in front of the bookstore between the student center and Meisler Hall was packed with Jaguar fans. They lined the upper and lower area of the student center, the amphitheater seating was overflowing with students, the walkway was lined with more fans, people crowded behind the band who where on the steps leading to Meisler Hall and more still crowded in behind the cheerleaders and the flower beds to get a good view of the festivities.

When the band started playing Jaguar Pride, the South Alabama fight song, the crowd went wild. Several people spoke including university president Gordon Moulton. But the stage was for Coach Jones and his players. The crowd went crazy when they were finally announced and came spilling into the courtyard of the amphitheater. It was quite evident to everyone in observance of this event, that the players were amazed and excited at the same time.
