40, 30, 20, 10, TOUCHDOWN, TOUCHDOWN!
The screaming of the announcer resounds in the Emory Sewell Stadium as the video of Warriors scoring a touchdown in a previous year plays on the new jumbotron, which highlights all of the Warrior’s accomplishments throughout the last 61 years. This video brings a light to NC, showcasing and encouraging a school spirit that continues to soar with the cheers of the student section, as baby powder launches into the air.
“[I] made the video in the hopes that we could highlight the history and tradition of NC. There’s a really rich football history here and in a day and age when a lot of kids are transferring to whatever school seems to be the latest and greatest, I wanted to be able to show that there was something special about being a part of the program,” Team Chaplain and video creator Dallas White said.
White gave the gory details associated with creating this chilling masterpiece, exclaiming the grueling searches and long hours it took.
“I searched various video sites and clicked through various links until I found things that fit. I would’ve loved to have found much older footage. We go back to the late ’80s, but there were some great teams here long before then and I would have liked to have been able to feature them,” White said.
The video gives students a new perspective into the rich 61-year history that NC holds to a great pedestal. It brings comfort and pride within the student body to see this history played out before every game.
“The new video on the jumbotron really shows the character NC has. It’s motivating and a good piece to open a game with spirit,” senior Priscilla Peterson said.
