BYU Athletics began the 2014 fall season with its 10th annual Cougar Kickoff Wednesday evening.

Thousands were in attendance to meet athletes from the football, women’s soccer, women’s volleyball and cross country teams. Players signed autographs and played games with fans.

Those who participated also had a chance to meet Cosmo, the Cheer team and the Cougarettes.

Photos of the evening’s festivities can be found on the BYU Cougars Facebook page.

Fans will have an additional opportunity to visit with members of the football team this Saturday when the Salt Lake Chapter of the BYU Cougar Club sponsors the Big Blue Bash. The event begins at 7 p.m. MDT at the Sheraton Hotel in Salt Lake City. Admission is $10 at the door.

BYU's student section, The ROC, is creating a board for the 2014-15 season and is looking for a few energetic and creative students to get involved.

The ROC is an official club on campus with ties to BYUSA and the BYU Athletic Department. Currently led by student employees of BYU Athletic Marketing, the ROC is shifting to volunteer student leaders, giving everyone on campus a chance to have a voice in the affairs of the student section.

The ROC board will handle everything ROC-related: gameday atmosphere, advertising, planning trips to road games, the ROC app, cheers, student involvement and more.

The goal of the ROC is to give the Cougars a great homefield/court advantage at all home events while upholding the standards of BYU. The board will play an important role in progressing the mission of the ROC and helping BYU have one of the best student sections in the country.
