Starting at 12PM December 31, 2018, the UC Bearcats will face off against the Virginia Tech Hokies at the Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium in Annapolis, MD in the long-anticipated Military Bowl.
This match-up between the Atlantic Coast and American Athletic Conferences is sure to be an exciting game. As part of the pre-game festivities, Team Fastrax™ will deliver the game ball with a spectacular patriotic skydive performance, shown via live feed on the scoreboard.
Just as the first notes of the National Anthem are heard throughout the stadium, fans will look to the sky as the team reverently jumps in with their 2,000 sq. ft. American Flag, 1,100 sq. ft. Purple Heart and Honor and Remember Flags, and all five flags of the Armed Forces.
“We are honored to be performing our patriotic skydive on such an important day at the Navy-Marine Corp Memorial Stadium,” commented John Hart, owner of Start Skydiving, and Founder of Team Fastrax™. “Members of Team Fastrax™ have served the United States of America as part of the Armed Forces, many in combat, so we particularly enjoy performing at any event that honors our Nation’s military.” He added, “We’re cheering for both teams this year because they each have a special place in our hearts. So, go Bearcats and go Hokies!”
