A Letter from Coach Jim Grobe

Dear Deacon Fans,

Thursday night represents an important opportunity for our football program. We have a chance to show how special Wake Forest's home field advantage can be on national television. Our team needs your help to make this a night to remember for all of our players, coaches, recruits and most importantly for yourselves, our loyal fans.

We need BB&T Field to be electric from the minute you arrive. Nothing gets our players pumped up quite like looking up into the stands during warm-ups and seeing a packed house of Deacon Fans dressed in black. So, come in to the stadium early and let our players know that you are behind them for a great night of footbal.

If for some reason you aren't able to make it to Thursday's game make sure your tickets end up in the hands of Deacon fans who will cheer loud in your place. With our current record of 2-1 in the ACC a win over Florida State would put us in a great position to again challenge for an ACC Title and another bowl bid. Reaching a second consecutive Bowl would go a long way in elevating the stature of our program around the country.

Our home crowd gave us a huge boost in the 4th quarter and overtime against Maryland and Thursday night we'll need that same edge starting with the opening kickoff. So please come to the game early, show your spirit and help us make it happen against the 'Noles.

Go Deacs,

Spring Game
