Today is election day and Coastal Carolina head coach Joe Moglia is making sure that every member of his football team shows up to the polls. To do that, Moglia took his players to the local polling station to ensure they participate.
“Every one of our guys is going to vote Tuesday, and that’s something I’m incredibly proud of,” Moglia said, via Myrtle Beach Online. “The service academies do that. There’s not going to be one other university football team in the nation that’s going to do that, and you know every one of them probably should do that.”
“Even though some players have voted early, they will go to the polls Tuesday just to support their teammates. The right to vote is one of the cornerstones of this great democracy and is a privilege no one should take for granted.”
What an awesome move by Moglia and the Chanticleers.
Prior to the election, Moglia and the coaching staff made sure every player was registered to vote and as full-time college students they are permitted to vote at the local polling location.
Make sure you do your part as well and get out and vote!
