Alden’s full Season Ticket Holder Profile via YouTube

HATTIESBURG, Miss. – Alden Bennett grew up as a Golden Eagle fan and strives to continue his family’s legacy as Southern Miss supporters. For him, football has turned into more than just going to the game. It’s turned into a valued opportunity to reconnect with classmates, friends, and family.

Bennett earned his undergraduate degree from Southern Miss in 2013 and immediately began purchasing tickets that fall. The Southern Miss Ticket Office offers a ticket discount program for recent graduates, so it was a no-brainer to purchase the heavily discounted tickets.

“You’re more than just a casual fan. You are someone that is a valued customer. You are someone who feels closer to the individual program,” Bennett said as he described what it’s like to be a Season Ticket Holder.

In his interview, Bennett talks about the number of people he has met by being a Season Ticket Holder, many of which turned into close friends. He is known by is colleagues as “The Ticket Man” as he is constantly trying to get others involved.

Through all of his years cheering on the Golden Eagles, what game do you think Alden remembers the most? Check out his profile to find out.
