Pride of Mississippi previews first halftime show

-

The Pride of Mississippi hosted its annual Pride Preview on the newly renovated Pride Field this past Friday.

The Department of Intramural Sports kicked off the show with a ribbon cutting ceremony to officially declare Pride Field as open. The Pride kicked off the performance with the entire pregame show sequence that will be performed at every home game before kickoff. The immense crowd showed their support from the start and were im- pressed by the new facility.

Next Saturday, the halftime show will feature music selections of the Doobie Brothers, which includes China Grove, Long Train Runnin’, and Listen to The Music. The Pride showcased these songs Friday night, as well as a fifth quarter tune titled “Tennessee Waltz.”

The Drum Line and Dixie Darlings also got to display their features Friday, and the night finished with the singing of the Southern Miss fight song and alma mater.

With football season approaching abruptly, the Golden Eagle football fans are not only gearing up for the Kentucky game, but for the Pride of Mississippi halftime show.
