Senior Patrick Probst, originally from St. Louis, Missouri has been chosen for this week’s SMU fan of the week.

Whenever he isn’t hitting the pre-med books, or hitting the right notes in SMU A capella Southern Gentlemen group, he is bleeding red and blue for his soon to be Alma Mater.

Probst is more than deserving of this title for a few reasons.

First, his attendance in nearly ever game consists of a variety of sports: men’s and women’s soccer, men’s and women’s basketball, and finally SMU football. Whether the Mustangs are up on the scoreboard or down, rest assured Probst is still cheering until the sound of the buzzer.

His Pony-Up pride stems from the SMU athletic tradition. He loves being a part of it and wishes to help return to SMU those periods of success and celebration.

Probst recalls his favorite Mustang Moment:

” It was my sophomore year. We were playing UTEP at home and if we won the game we would be bowl eligible for only the second time in the past 25 years. We sacked the UTEP quarterback to end the game and all of the students rushed the field. To be part of that experience was incredible and I hope to participate in moments like that again this year.”

Q. Whataburger or In-N-Out?

A. In-N-Out

Q. Would you rather be a vampire or a werewolf?

A. I’m not a fan of Twilight so I don’t know the perks of being

either. I’d probably go with vampire though.
