Cats go Christmas caroling


Purple joined the normal Christmas colors of red and green as a group of K-State football players took to the streets of Manhattan Thursday to sing Christmas carols.

Freshman safety Denzel Goolsby put out a call on Twitter on Dec. 8 to “assemble the greatest Christmas carol group in K-State history.”

Even actor and K-State alum Eric Stonestreet and the Pride of Wildcat Land wanted in on the holiday fun.

Goolsby incentivized festiveness with hot chocolate goodness.

After just one week of preparation, the group was ready to warm hearts and bring festive cheer throughout the Little Apple.

Carolers who joined Goolsby included senior wide receiver Deante Burton, senior linebacker Charmeachealle Moore, senior safety Dante Barnett, freshman defensive back Johnathan Durham, freshman quarterback Skylar Thompson, freshman running back Alex Barnes, freshman defensive back A.J. Parker, freshman offensive lineman Tyler Mitchell, senior offensive lineman Will Ash, sophomore running back Dalvin Warmack, freshman defensive back Brock Monty and senior wide receiver Steven West.


One of their stops was Zeta Tau Alpha sorority.

And if 14 seconds of “Silent Night” wasn’t enough for you…

Wildcat hearts grew three sizes that day.

The team definitely did not take an L for their performance. Listeners were throughly impressed with their vocals.

And most importantly, they passed their final.
