This week’s Fan of the Week is Mark Brock. Here is his Ole Miss story:
My longest consecutive home game streak was 137 from 1985 until the Sept. 22, 2007 Florida game..
Part of the streak was due in part to going to work in the Ole Miss Athletics SID as a student assistant in the fall of 1987. I began working on the stat crew that year and have worked 31 consecutive seasons at the home games despite moving to Atlanta in 2002.
I worked six games in 2007 and 2008 missing the first for my honeymoon (2007 FL) and the second for a close family friend’s wedding (Sept. 20, 2008 vs. Vandy). Since that point I have been to 73 consecutive home games, two bowl games and the Chick-Fil-A kickoff game.
This past season (2017) I became the lead stats person. I would never had thought this would be such a long and fun trip. Everything from The Stand to knocking off highly ranked Florida and Alabama in Oxford.
Fortunately, my wife, Janette, became a big fan and enjoys our trips to Oxford. I look forward to many more games working and enjoying my time being a part Ole Miss game day
