Dixie’s D-Crew Club has a fresh and exciting vision for this year as it introduces its newest team member: the D-Crew Car.
In the Wade Alumni House, west of the Hansen Stadium, Dixie’s rowdiest and most supportive group of students are putting on their best red attire and warming up their vocal chords for the loudest, most pumped up year of school spirit at Dixie football games. The D-Crew is letting everyone know the Red Storm is on their way in their official automobile.
The decked-out car made its debut at the Week of Welcome’s Club Rush. Incoming freshmen flocked to the D-Crew booth to check out the unique qualities of the vehicle.
The white, old Crown Victoria is rocking a new set of speakers, donated by Advanced Sound and Performance, and will soon be getting a set of LED under-the-rim neon glowing lights. A music blasting, light show display of Dixie spirit is the sort of spectacle students can expect at the upcoming football games.
In addition to DSU’s first home football game on Sept. 14, the car will be present at parades, D-Crew parties and school events for spectators to take pictures with or go on a ride with the D-Crew members.
Tanner Laub, a junior business major from Beryl and president of the D-Crew Club, has one goal in mind for the D-Crew Car this year.
“We are pushing for a lasting effect and climbing higher to be a better supporting school,” Laub said. “The car is helping us make it fresh.”
He said the idea of the car was to catch the attention of those who don’t otherwise pay attention to the Dixie school spirit, in hopes they will also consider joining in on the fun.
“I’m just so excited for all of it,” Laub said. “Our push this year is to show the pride of Dixie.”
Mikayla Loosli, a freshman elementary education major from Logan and newly recruited D-Crew Club member, said she’s excited for what the new car will be doing for this year’s school spirit.
“This is my first year of college, and being able to see all the D-Crew events going on and that sweet car they have, I’m seriously pumped for this season of sports,” Loosli said.
