The 12th Man refers to our loyal Aggie fans. It started in 1922 when a student was called out of the stands to play in a football game. He stood on the sidelines for the rest of the game ready to go in. Now, all Aggie students stand during our games to symbolize their 12th Man spirit!

Twelfth Man Statue located in front of Kyle Field. A gift of the Class of '80, this statue portrays E. King Gill a Texas A & M football player. In 1922 during a post-season game Gill was called from the stands to help the football team, which was losing players due to injuries. Although he never entered the game, by the time it was over he was the only player standing along the sidelines. Since then Aggies have stood at football games to symbolize their unity with the team as its"Twelfth Man".
