Purple Haze Association
Purple Haze, a tradition created by a group of student leaders, is more than a section of students at the football game. Purple Haze is a commitment and dedication to the Lumberjack spirit. Each freshman who attends orientation is given a Purple Haze shirt that displays the SFA school song across the back. In 2013, Purple Haze Association became an official student organization. They basically are like unofficial cheerleaders for everyone!
At every home football game, the SFA ROTC introduces the opposing team to Ole Cotton. Each time the Lumberjacks score, Ole Cotton is fired. The sound booms through the stadium and the town. If you have never been to a game, but you've heard the booms, don't worry. It's just those Lumberjacks kickin' some axe. This sounds so much fun. Its like hearing fireworks whenever you are at a game. I've never been near a cannon, but can you imagine this?
