I grew up in a family of serious NC State fans. From the day I was born, I knew my blood ran Wolfpack red. It always has, and it always will.
But, unlike the rest of my family, I'm not an NC State alum. My college adventure took me to a different place -- the luscious grounds of Elon.
As a Fightin' Christian/Phoenix fan, we didn't always have a whole lot to cheer for. Not that our team wasn't decent, but we just didn't quite have the hype of the larger ESPN Game Day type schools. For the first year or two of my college career, going to Elon football games included a trip to the local high school for use of their field.
Over the past decade (decade?!?), however, the Elon football program has been steadily building and growing. Elon now has it's own football stadium and is preparing for one of the biggest games in Elon history -- playing Appalachian State for the Southern Conference championship.
