FAMU Seniors Ready for Classic

By  | 

For the Rattlers 27 seniors, the annual meeting with Bethune Cookman in the Florida Classic will mark their final regular season game wearing the Orange and Green.
FAMU Senior Offensive Tackle Robert Okeafor says,
"I've been going to the Classic since '99. I had a cousin who played for Florida A&M back in the day so I think I've missed two since '99 so I know the excitement. All my family is going to be there, a lot of my friends will be there so it's going to be a real big deal come Saturday."
FAMU Senior Outside Linebacker Gregory Boler adds,
"Coming from Philly, there's really no type of anything to that magnitude."
The Rattlers will look to go out with a bang in 2009, similar to the way they ended 2008, when they beat Bethune 58-35.
FAMU Senior Offensive Lineman Anthony Collins adds,
"We can't lose to them and that's just the motive we're going to this game. We're going into this Classic to have fun with our family and friends but we can't come out there without a win."
This year will mark the 30th renewal of the Florida Classic, which has drawn over 60,000 fans since 1998.
