It's a fact of life, people like to party.
Some more so than others and last night, the Southern Miss football team threw one for fans in Jackson at the Mississippi Trade Mart.
"It's a confidence booster. I feel like it gave me another reason to push myself to keep going," said junior wide receiver D.J. Thompson.
"As far as my teammates are concerned, you don't realize how many people are in it with us and you know as long as we keep pushing forward we will be great."
Southern Miss will take on Mississippi State in their season opener August 30.
