2017 Belk Bowl

This past Friday, I had the opportunity to cheer on the Wake Forest Demon Deacons in the Belk Bowl. It was probably one of the most exciting experiences of my life. I had such a fun time getting to cheer my team to victory surrounded by so many of my schoolmates and fellow demon deacon supporters. As a result, I wanted to recount the experience here as well as share some fun pictures and a video!

We arrived in Charlotte, NC on Thursday night. It was only a 4-hour drive, but we had just driven home from Florida(10 hours) the day before so upon arrival at our hotel we basically passed out. We missed a few pregame parties, but I didn't mind as I wanted to save my energy for the big game day. 

We woke up early on game day and headed to the Famous Toastery, one of my absolute favorite places to eat breakfast. After that, we headed downtown and over to the stadium. The game wasn't until 1, but Scotty McCreary was putting on a concert beforehand at 11. He was very good and as a big country music fan, it was so fun to hear him sing his own songs as well as country classics I know and love. 

After the concert, we headed into the stadium to watch the Demon Deacons play. The Deacs started out really strong, struggled a little bit after the half but finished up strong and won! It was cool to watch our coach and players receive the trophy and our senior quarterback to get the MVP trophy. It was such an amazing experience full of lots of happy cheers. 

It was a day full of freezing toes, lots of layers, but many more smiles and cheers. I feel so happy and lucky to have gotten to experience it firsthand. It is certainly a day that I will never forget. GO DEACS!
