Bulldog Nation gathered on Thursday evening for the annual Meet the Bulldogs event. However, the program, which usually lasts about an hour, was hurried due to nearby thunderstorms that were producing frequent lightning strikes.

The Voice of the Bulldogs, Art Lay, served as announcer and he called out the names of individual athletes just as fast as they could run onto the field.

At the end of the program, just as Art was introducing the last few members of the coaching staff, a lightning bolt struck just a few miles away and the students and crowd was urged to quickly seek cover.
