Gorilla Dash is a 5k obstacle course at the PSU Baja course. The course will consist of 30 or more obstacle that will need to be navigated in order to complete the course. All proceeds benefit the SFC Forrest Robertson Memorial Scholarship. Anyone up for a challenge is encouraged to partake in this event! See more Gorilla Dash photos under Events and Videos!
Events that happen before the game include rope bridge, face painting, national guard activities, t-shirt sales, and more.
A time honored tradition at PSU, gorilla battalion cadets present the colors (United States and Kansas State Flag) at ceremonial events including home football games and local parades. Color Guard training demands precision and coordination from participating cadets, which enhance their dill and ceremony skills. The Gorilla Battalion Color Guard is in high demand by groups and communities in and around the Pittsburg area due to the exceptional performance by its members.
This elite group displays the Army’s strength through firepower and, sometimes pushups at PSU home football games. After each Pitt State touchdown, the 75mm cannon is fired and pushups are conducted according to how many points have been scored. Wimps need not apply because this group’s motto is: "Only the Strong Survive".
