BIRMINGHAM, Ala. -- UAB Athletics will host a new-and-improved Green & Gold 101, a free event for fans of all ages, Friday from 6-7:30 p.m. on the UAB Campus Green.
Join members of the Blazer family as we introduce the UAB teams competing in the fall, including football, soccer, volleyball, cross country and -- newest of all -- bowling. But this event isn't just about meeting the student-athletes.
The night will be filled with fun as the action gets kicked off with a pep rally by the UAB Marching Blazers and spirit teams. The "Voice of the Blazers," David Crane, will emcee the event with coaches and student-athletes alike onhand to preview the upcoming seasons.
If that weren't enough, your favorite UAB players will challenge you to test your sports prowess. Can you catch a Hail Mary pass from starting quarterback Bryan Ellis? Can you score a goal on all-conference and all-region Carl Woszczynski? Can you handle your own on the volleyball court against record-breaking libero Heather Thomas and All-American Sam Serley? You won't know until you try.
Plenty of other activities will be going on, from bocce ball and cornhole to cheer exhibitions and information on intramural sports. There will be free food for the first 300 UAB students.
Celebrate the end of the first week of classes and the beginning of the fall sports season by coming out and having fun at Green & Gold 101.
