Jayhawks Host Fall Pep Rally In Olathe

Oct. 9, 2010


Kansas fans congregated in Olathe for a pep rally during KU’s off football weekend Saturday evening. Sponsored the Kansas Athletics and the KU Alumni Association, Kansas basketball coaches Bonnie Henrickson and Bill Self and KU football coach Turner Gill addressed the crowd of more than 1,000 outside Johnny’s Tavern with the KU band, cheerleaders and mascots in full support.

The family-friendly KU event included inflatables for kids, merchant giveaways and plenty of KU flair. Henrickson and Self discussed the upcoming basketball season, but first encouraged the Jayhawks fans in attendance to cheer loud versus Kansas State in the upcoming football game. Gill then addressed the crowd, showing his support to his fellow coaches before also exciting the crowd when discussing the Jayhawks’ next football game.
