Gamecock Club members are obviously some of the most passionate South Carolina fans. 

Many of the Gamecock Club Board of Directors were in attendance at Will Muschamp's introductory press conference as South Carolina head football coach at Williams-Brice Stadium on Monday, Dec. 7, and seeing the passion Muschamp has is one of the reasons they are so excited about the hire. 

"We're excited with the passion and the recruiting that he's going to bring to the University," Charlotte Gamecock Club chapter president James Wolf said. "He's got a chip on his shoulder and I think we do as well as Gamecocks to show the rest of the country that we belong here."

Richard Loper of the Greenwood County Gamecock Club agrees with Wolf. 

"He brings a lot of energy with him," Loper said. "He's got some history with some championship programs and he knows what it will take to make a championship program here. He's a great recruiter and the kids should be excited to come play for him."

Frank Davis of the Edgefield County Gamecock Club is excited about the new era of Gamecock football. 

"Coach Muschamp is an experienced coach, he's a tenacious recruiter and I think that's what we need," Davis said before later adding, "I trust Ray Tanner in that he's got the right man that he thinks is going to lead our program and I'm happy with that."

Alison Mundy Burns of the Greenwood County Gamecock Club thinks the future is extremely bright for Gamecock football. 

"I'm very excited," Mundy Burns said. "I think the past is in the past and it's time to move forward and get excited to be a Gamecock again."
