12TH MAN ON CAMPUS

Kyle Field has been made famous for being the Home of the 12th Man.

But what you might not know is that the 12th Man has taken on many different forms in many different places.

The drumbeats and chants of the Maroon Militia create an electrifying atmosphere which makes Ellis Field one of the most challenging destinations in college soccer.

At the Aggie Softball Complex, the Sugar Daddies ensure that any opponent the team faces will never have an easy pitch and never have an easy at-bat.

And Blue Bell Park is not only the home of "Olsen Magic", but home of the Aggie Raggies and Section 203. Coach Rob Childress said himself that there has never been a more challenging place to come play ball, and there has never been a more enthusiastic and die-hard group to support their team.

No matter the venue, the 12th Man is alive and well in Aggieland.
