Albany- Inside the Civic Center, the South Georgia Wildcats Marching Band is getting familiar with the football field. "Getting ready for the big game tomorrow, students are very enthused about it and just putting the finishing touches on the show," says band general manager Chris Pike.
From the brass to the drumline, the band will add another dimension to the game Saturday night. "We're going to add that extra umph the football team needs," says Pike.
So will the the Ladycats cheerleaders. Dress rehearsal is gearing them up for their special part in team support. "What do cheerleaders always add to the game? Excitement, fun, they look good so I always think it's the picture frame that frames a beautiful picture," says dance coach and choreographer Tracy Rutledge.
A picture perfect addition to South Georgia, arena football. Owners are seeing the preparation right before their eyes. "To see all of that happening and all of that coming together is going to be exciting for the participants and it's exciting for the families that'll be in attendance," says managing partner Mike Storen.
Player Roy Williams says, "We would just like the public to know us as a family as a team. It's gonna be really exciting tomorrow." Players got their practice time in earlier but now they're relaxing and getting ready for opening night.
"We just sharpened everything up. Practice went great. We had a lot of fun in practice today," says Williams. And they'll take that energy to the field along with the band, the cheerleaders and the cheering fans in the stands.
"The way that we're going to measure success is when everyone goes home, will they say wow, that was some event," says Storen. Because they're giving 110 percent to make sure opening night goes out with a bang.
