Lone Florida Player Stays To Sing Alma Mater Song After Embarrassing Loss

Lone Florida Player Stays To Sing Alma Mater Song After Embarrassing LossAt the end of Florida victories, the team usually sticks around to sing the alma mater with the band.

‘One player stayed’

But after Wednesday’s embarrassing 33-23 loss to Louisville in the Sugar Bowl, most Florida players couldn’t get off the field fast enough while others went to find their friends and family in the stands. But one player stayed to sing his last fight song of the season.

Junior linebacker Darrin Kitchens ran over to the band section, held his helmet high and proudly sang the fight song. It didn’t matter that he was the only one standing alone while his other teammates ignored his gesture.


‘Savor this final moment’

According to the participation report, Kitchens never played in the game. Yet he seemed to savor this final moment and I’m sure the band appreciated his participation.

Do you admire Darrin Kitchens for his visible dedication to his alma mater? Would you be able to do the same if you were in the same situation, or would you also hurriedly hide behind the bleachers after an embarrassing loss? Feel free to comment on this unusual move and tell us what you think of Darrin Kitchens!
