Fans Invited to Special Midnight Yell Practice

Aggie football fans are invited to a special Midnight Yell Practice on Friday, July 30th.

Memo Salinas, Head Yell Leader, says the event will be filmed as part of Texas A&M’s national football commercial.

“As other schools across the nation are getting ready for the game by going to bed, sleeping, or at a bar, we’re just getting started. We’re packing Kyle Field the night before the game. It’s one of the best traditions in college football,” says Salinas.

Texas A&M is asking for 5,000 fans, but Salinas says the more the merrier.

“Wear maroon, bring your friends, bring your family, bring everybody. And have some fun, you’re going to be on national television representing A&M,” says Salinas.

The first 1,000 fans will receive a free, special edition t-shirt. All fans are encouraged to wear A&M gear and/or school colors.

Free food and refreshments will be provided. The gates to Kyle Field open Friday at 7 p.m.
