The Rampage are pleased to announce FAN-tastic Friday for all of our fans who “Like” us on Facebook. Each Friday throughout the offseason, we will pick one fan to highlight on both Facebook and sarampage.com. Fans will be playing for fabulous Rampage prizes each week and will be entered into a Fan Playoff bracket. Once 16 fans have been highlighted, we will begin Fan Playoffs in which all Rampage fans will vote on the match ups through Facebook. One lucky fan will be voted as the most FAN-tastic and will win a team autographed stick.
This week’s FAN-tastic Friday winner is Kevin Roark and his son Sam!
Learn why Kevin and Sam are this week’s winners in their Q&A with sarampage.com:
In their own words, why they are the biggest Rampage fans:
Sam is my 11 year old son, and became a great fan of the Rampage during the 2010-11 season. We were partial season ticket holders and decided to get full season tickets for 2011-12. Other than the games, Sam loves to attend the jersey charity actions and has managed to get most of the teams autographs on his jersey. His love for the Rampage has created an interest in playing hockey and ice skating. This summer he is taking lessons and has decided he wants to play in the NHL. Sam has really gravitated to the sport of hockey and the Rampage has inspired him to get involved in a sport that he enjoys and is great exercise. We have actually been stopped in public because someone recognizes Sam from doing what he calls the “bunny face” on the “Smile cam” during the game. We can’t wait until next season!
How long have you both been Rampage fans? How did you find out about the Rampage?
My son Sam and I have been Rampage fans since the beginning of the 2010 season. We are fairly new to San Antonio and decided one Sunday to go to a Rampage game. We had such a great time that we bought a 10 game flex pack. A couple of games later, we decided to get season tickets 3 rows up from the ice in a great section.
What is your favorite thing about going to Rampage games?
Hockey is the greatest sport to watch live. Sam and I are both hockey fans and the games are a great way for us to spend the afternoon or evening together. The variety of special events that the Rampage put on always keeps us looking forward to going to the AT&T center.
Who is your favorite player? Why?
Nolan Yonkman- He plays with a lot of intensity no matter what the score is. We are excited he is going to be wearing a Panthers Jersey.
What is your best memory from the 2010-11 season?
We have really enjoyed the jersey auction events. The players are very friendly and willing to sign autographs for the fans. Sam has managed to get most of the teams autograph on his Rampage jersey!
What are you most looking forward to in the 2011-12 season?
We can hardly wait until the season starts. We bought our season tickets as soon as they were available and we have great seats this year. Hockey seams be getting more attention in San Antonio and we are looking forward to enjoying the games, theme nights and special events with all the Rampage’s great fans! This is the year we will take the Calder Cup. Ready. Set. Rampage!
