Seniors’ Last Big Hits

year, the senior members of the Mizzou Football Family experience the ZOU in a bittersweet way. Every event, practice, and game is significant because it is his last. No matter if it’s the memorable senior sendoff during the final home game or team dinners, the football family makes it special.

As the senior Tigers prepare for the 2015 Buffalo Wild Wings Citrus Bowl in Orlando, Fla., they took part in the annual tradition of final hits, where each senior gets his final hits in before the big game.

The seniors’ last hits drew the attention of the coaches and younger players, and it became a spectacle as the crowd witnessed each senior take a running start and take the final hit of practice.

Early on in the annual tradition, the seniors added their own style to their spotlight moment. The senior Tigers did everything from flips and kicks to throwing a crutch in the air.
