What would be so enticing that these students would stand in such a long line in the Brickyard today?
Well, those students who chose to wait and wore red were given “Beat Liberty” buttons by members of AASAP (Alumni Association Student Ambassador Program).
AASAP gave out 500 total buttons today. They saw 250 go in the first 20 minutes.
The button giveaway is an effort by AASAP to encourage school spirit during football season, which starts for the Wolfpack Saturday with a 6 p.m. kickoff against the Liberty Flames. The organization will be holding these giveaways on Fridays before each home game this year in the Brickyard from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
“A lot of schools give away T-shirts,” says AASAP member Danielle Laundon. “The buttons are really simple. You don’t have to worry about running out of sizes. And you can collect them.”
