This week’s Fans of the Week is Jennifer & Gary Phillips. Here is their Ole Miss story:
My family bleeds red and blue! When my husband, Bobby, and I had children, we knew that we were a sports family and always had dreams of bringing up our children to have a love for Ole Miss, just as we do! Last year, we were finally granted the ability to become season ticket holders and can not be more grateful! Every home game weekend we travel from the Gulf Coast (we live in Vancleave) to experience Game Day! The whole experience is never short of amazing! The memories we have created and continue to create will last a lifetime! My children are into the game and fun times just as much as we are! At the end of each game, they race to the bottom of section A, where our seats are to speak with the players after the games! In my opinion it’s priceless! From the game used pieces (wrist bands, gloves, towels, etc.) to just the players’ smiles and hand shakes, it makes their world go round! My son began playing middle school football this year and brings with him to every game a pair gloves he received! We love Ole Miss!!
