The Williams-Brice crew works long before the game begins

For Jeff Davis, associate athletics director for operations and facilities management at the University of South Carolina, Thursday’s season-opening football game is the culmination of more than a week of work prepping the stadium. Some jobs, like making sure the field is ready, are obvious; others, not so much. “When a bulb goes out in one of the huge light towers, somebody needs to go up onto the catwalk and change it by hand,” he says. “That’s one job I’m glad I don’t have to handle.”
