A Military Homecoming:
During the game yesterday, Logan McNan was honored as the Pistol Pete Partner of the Game. Little did he know he was in for the surprise of his life. Normally, they say “Go Pokes” at the end of the presentation, but McNan was surprised with a video from his big brother Corporal Kyle McNan who was deployed serving in the USMC. The surprise went even further when the corporal showed up in the stadium. This was amazing and there wasn’t a dry eye in the stadium.
