Get Excited About the Eagles!
If you are a potential student considering coming to Pensacola Christian College or already are a student here at PCC, getting involved in Eagles sporting events—whether as a spectator, athlete, cheerleader, or tumbler—is probably something you’ll want to consider.
Last season, the men’s basketball team won 16 of their final 22 games and went on to advance to the second round of the NCCAA South Region Tournament. Playing in the 3,100-seat Sports Center arena, the Eagles scored 2,214 points while providing exciting and competitive games at Pensacola last year.
If you don’t consider yourself to be perhaps quite as athletic as those on the team (or were always too short to play basketball, like myself), there are many other ways to stay involved with the school’s three teams.
- Try out for the Eagles’ cheerleading or Tumbler squads.
- Attend home games in the Sports Center (full schedule here).
- Follow @EaglesPCC on Twitter and tweet your in-game thoughts, words of encouragement and photos with the hashtags #ShowYourPCCSpirit and #PCCEagles on game days.
- Follow the Campus Post blog for updates throughout the season on the state of the Eagles.
One of my personal favorite games of the year is the team’s annual White Out game. Last season, the Eagles defeated Clearwater Christian College 110-62 in front of thousands of PCC students—myself included—adorned in white apparel on White Out night.
From the mascot Eagor to the energizing Tumblers and cheerleaders, there’s plenty more than just the on-court performance to get excited about on game days—and you can be a part of it!
As for those of you reading this that consider yourself to be athletically gifted, there’s exciting news for you.
Each fall, every Eagles team holds tryouts that are open to everyone. That's right, everyone.
That means you could become an Eagle!
- First, go to pcci.edu/athletics/PlayerInformation.aspx and submit the form.
- Once you arrive on campus, you may participate in open tryouts.
Prior to joining the Eagles, many high school athletes participate in Youth Outreach summer camps in Pensacola, giving them a jumpstart into the atmosphere of PCC sports (though attending one of the camps is certainly not a prerequisite to joining the Eagles).
This year, the Eagles’ first home game will be played on Tuesday, November 19 against LaGrange College at the Sports Center Arena at 7:30 p.m. CT. The following week’s home game against Johnson University of Florida at 3 p.m. will be streamed live at pcci.edu/Athletics/EaglesStreaming.0
