Tailgating

Whether you are a former Ole player, the parent of a current Ole, a diehard Ole fan, or even if you just simply forgot to eat breakfast; everyone is invited to join us before every Ole Football home game at the Tailgate. 

Grillmeister Brian Hanson ('04) will have the charcoals lit and beverages chilled at 10:30 a.m. every gameday under the black and gold tent off the east end zone. Please stop by for a burger or hotdog and a chance to relive the time you scored four touchdowns in one game, roasted a senior during the rookie show, or to just stare at Thorson hill and be thankful you aren't running it for jumping offsides.

While the Touchdown Club is pleased to provide food and beverage at the Tailgate free of charge to all (except Carleton fans), we do ask that you please consider the following:

  • Make a donation to ensure that the Touchdown Club can continue in its mission of supporting current and future St. Olaf Football teams (and feeding you). 
  • Express your thanks to the volunteers working under the tent for their dedication.
  • Take the time to introduce yourself and get to know others within the Ole Football family. 
  • Shake the hand of Grillmeister Brian Hanson, and tell him that you've heard about his deceptive speed (he loves that).
