The best part about these games is not only that I get to spend time with my family, but also introduce them to everyone I love at HSU,” said Kacie Eurek ’17. “My mom had an amazing time meeting other HSU Cowboys and families at the game, and she even had a chance to catch up with President Bruntmyer.
