b-ezzelleBrian Ezzelle ’90 moved to Richmond after graduating from NC State, but never lost touch with his strong Wolfpack roots.

As a dedicated alumnus living close to the home of NC State’s ACC opponent this week, Ezzelle spoke with us this week about what it is like to be a member of the Wolfpack living among fans of the Virginia Cavaliers.

As a student at NC State, Ezzelle was an active member of the Phi Kappa Tau fraternity. He frequented sports events with his fraternity brothers and enjoyed them thoroughly. Reminiscing about one particular game against Clemson, he described it as “a perfect win” for the Wolfpack.

Trying to stay connected across state lines, Ezzelle participates in the NCSU Club in Richmond and has been a co-chair of the organization.

“I haven’t been as active, my kids are getting older,” Ezzelle say. But he still helps fellow Wolfpack lovers stay connected in the area by helping to maintain the chapter’s website.

Ezzelle says he has yet to see NC State beat UVA in Charlottesville, but he is pulling for a Wolfpack win this Saturday. “I hope they do [win], but I bring bad luck,” Ezzelle joked.

His prediction: A close game, 24-20, with UVA as the winner.
