Medal of Honor recipient and current University of South Carolina sophomore Kyle Carpenter led the traditional “Game! … Cocks!” cheer prior to last night’s season opener against Texas A&M.
The Afghanistan vet had said prior to the game that he was nervous to get in front of the crowd of 80,000, but as you can see below, his execution and showmanship were on point.[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lD3gQNTLtbo[/youtube]
Carpenter’s performance might have been the highlight of the evening for Gamecock fans, as their 9th-ranked squad was beaten 52-28 by the 21st-ranked Aggies.
