Decade-long Ticketholder Craves EMU Football

By David Wanko, Class of 1995

EMU is Eagle Nation.

As an alumnus of Eastern Michigan and a season ticket holder for over a decade, it has been a lot of fun starting and overseeing the EMU Football Facebook page (

When I heard the team was having a practice open to the public last Saturday, I jumped at the chance to get some pictures up close to the action.  Thankfully I did not get crushed by some of the very large recruits Coach English has brought in the last two years because I ventured right onto the field at times for the pictures you see in  the album.  I cannot wait for the first game on September 4th versus Army.  I will be in my usual seat on the 50-yard line (season tickets for Division 1 football for under $45!) with my cowbell ready for an EMU victory.  Go Eastern!  Beat Army!
