Students, families and the community gather at the West parking lot with food, drinks and game day excitement. A normal tailgate to some, but to others it was an opportunity to help save HSU athletics.
As The Lumberjack previously reported, the Lumberjack football team may be in its last season. The school’s reason for cutting the team reflects budget cuts across the board.
Yet students, their families and locals got together for some time in the sun before Saturday’s game.
Food was all around, and faces were getting painted. Notably, there was a group with a large following called Save HSU Athletics. Raising money through fundraising and donations, the tailgate provided an additional opportunity to do just that.
Saturday was an example of our HSU community meshing with the Humboldt community. No ill will, just a bunch of fans with the same mindset: To have fun and support our Jacks.
