As a special treat, we will also perform a crowd favorite as we pull our enormous American flag! We will not be signing up for this specific task, but will need about 40 people to help us, so if you can help and want to take part in this amazing Trojan Tradition, join us on at the back of the field about 6 minutes before half-time for instruction.
