Transcript KEEPING TRADITION By Sara Nichols It's hard to miss the men dressed in long beige jackets with a red UH emblem and cowboy hats standing next to the football players at Robertson Stadium. These men — the Frontiersmen — have come to be a staple at all football games and spirit events on campus, as they epitomize UH tradition and pride. Established in 1948, the Frontiersmen have come to act as ambassadors for the University, on and off campus, and in 1996, they began to serve as ambassadors of the State of Texas as well. "We act as visual embodiments of pride on the field, inspiring the Cougar fans to cheer on their team and hold up the Cougar paw with pride and dignity," Frontiersmen Foreman Kelly Waterman said. During the football games the presence of the Frontiersmen is undeniable, as two men dash across the field carrying the Texas and University flag, while a couple more sound the Blaze, an old field warning siren, every time the Cougars score a touchdown. "It's very surreal being in that position during games," supply chain logistics technology senior and Frontiersmen Jon Werner said. "You are on the ultimate stage of support for the Coogs." The Frontiersmen are implicitly pro-UH, and for them Cougar pride doesn't stop at football. The Frontiersmen are known for their leadership around campus and around the community. They take part in several events on campus, like Frontier Fiesta and other spirit events. And off campus they participate in events including the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, Sunshine Kids, Cougar Cookers, and "H" Association events. "We are adamant about being part of UH school activities, so that everyone can enjoy UH and its sporting events the way we do," Werner said. "We do what we can to show the Coogs we love them." Waterman said one of the best parts about being a Frontiersman is that he gets to wear a cowboy hat around campus and receive gawking stares from students who are not so familiar with the tradition. "It's fun to wear the cowboy hat on campus because it's an attention-grabber," he said. "It's something that's kind of different and quirky, so it elicits interest among people. I get to tell them what it is I do." Waterman said the best part about being part of a group like the Frontiersmen is that they are a part of a long tradition which purpose is to love the University, uphold its traditions and represent what it stands for. "It gives me another avenue to give back to UH," Waterman said. "Not only is it a privilege to get to do this, but it's an honor. In our small part, Frontiersmen inspire people to have pride and to be involved and support UH." Photo by Clarissa Arispe [158] Inside the Pride.
