For the past seven years, Big Game has been behind many of the themed sporting events, planning tailgates and other school spirit ideas. While in the past, Big Game has focused on covering “The Big Three”: football, basketball and baseball. This year, however, the club has expanded into covering volleyball and cross-country.

Co-president and senior Conner McGeehan said, “I’ve been leading and hosting a lot of tailgates and creating the themes for games and just encouraging people to just go to the games and not just only the main sports like basketball and football, but also soccer, tennis and cross-country.”

Big Game aims to increase overall student participation at sporting events, and according to co-president and senior Nicky Jasin, it has been successful in achieving its goals.

“I think it has gotten Carmel students excited about sporting events, and it really has increased attendance and school spirit throughout Carmel High School,” he said.

Before taking his leadership role in Big Game, Jasin was heavily involved in Carmel sports, going out to numerous games.

Jasin said, “I just am really interested in attending all the sporting events, and I thought it would be interesting to help come up with themes and tailgate ideas.”

McGeehan similarly went to many sporting games throughout his high school years.

“For the past three years, freshman year through junior year, I pretty much went to every sporting event I could. So I figured, why not just go out and become the leader of Big Game?” McGeehan said.

According to McGeehan, some possible future events include partnering with the school’s student government for a suit-and-tie theme for a basketball game, as well as a Gatsby-themed dance later this year.
