mascots in 20 years....from hey reb all the way down to mister trash back in home state of new jersey. he's also got a national following after starring in a 10 episode hulu documentary called behind the mask. and he's done all of it knowing he had an added danger. jersey: i was born with epilepsy. so really it's taking a chance being in stressful atmospheres that that could bring on an episode. there has only been one episode - and we were there - at a unlv kids event beofre a runnin' rebels game in 2011. hey reb hit the deck....and people soon realized it wasn't part of an act....goldman had a seizure. jersey: i was so excited to be surrounded by 2500 kids and parents on a day where that might not happen that i came out of that elevator so excited. apparantly my brain couldn't take it.
7:51 am
night's game but was right back in action after that...adding everything from shooting off fireworks at mid court....to crowd surfing the student section. jersey goldman: you just have faith that those people are gonna carry you all the way up. the hey reb bar has been raised - but goldman's time as hey reb is over. it's time for the torch to be passed...but he wants to make sure his successors don't drop the ball - because the fans deserve a complete game experience. jersey: if i can come to every game and put one smile on someobdy's face, it's been successful. it's been a successful day. a smile....a giggle....a part of the game that is often overlooked. hey reb may be representing the best university in nevada....but it will always have a little jersey in him. forget playing
