Part of the Friday routine for Jimokes includes loading the equipment truck.
The equipment truck holds all the players’ equipment bags (shoulder pads, helmets, cleats, and pads), miscellaneous trunks, and any other important fixture to USC game-days. It’s just another very important process that we are involved in.
Each new season brings in new high-class players. And each new season brings in a new equipment truck–decorated with those players.
Guys like Taylor Mays, Kristofer O’Dowd, Josh Pinkard, Jeff Byers, and Joe McKnight are part of the feature this season.
I have included some pictures from tonight’s truck loading, which is quite exciting. With the Trojan Marching Band playing in the background and fans coming in from all over the area, the atmosphere is nearly game-like.
