2013 Tennessee Tech Baseball

the averitt express baseball complex

Built in 1978, Bush Stadium at the Averitt Express Baseball Complex has been the home of Tennessee Tech baseball for more than 40 years. The Golden Eagles moved into the stadium at the start of the 1978 season, and won the first game ever played there, a 7-6 win over Eastern Kentucky. But Bush Stadium hasn’t always looked the way it does today.

In 2000 the team added a batting cage to the facility. The cage is inside a 3,600 square foot covered building adjacent to the clubhouse. With all the additions over the years, Bush Stadium at the Averitt Express Baseball Complex has transformed into a first-class baseball facility, and is truly a home field advantage to Tech baseball players.

Over the past 15 years the facility has seen tremendous upgrades. In 1995 the stadium saw the addition of its 3,240 squarefoot clubhouse. Among the features of the clubhouse are player and coaches’ locker rooms, coaches’ offices, team weight room and a team lounge area. In 1997 lights were added to the facility and the Golden Eagles played their first night game at home on March 25, 1997, a 9-6 loss to Tennessee. At the time, Tech was only the fourth school in the Ohio Valley Conference to have a lighted baseball field. The facility was dedicated as “Bush Stadium” in 1997 in honor of Howell W. Bush, who donated the funds needed to bring lights to the facility. The next addition to the facility came just a year later, in 1998, when a new press box was added to the top of the stands. The 460 square foot press box features three separate rooms to house game management, home and visiting media.

HEAD COACH

MATT BRAGGA TENTH SEASON • KENTUCKY, 1994 2010 OVC COACH OF THE YEAR

The 2010 Ohio Valley Conference Coach of the Year and the 2009 Tennessee Baseball Coaches Association Coach of the Year, Matt Bragga, enters his tenth season at the helm of the Tennessee Tech baseball team after leading the Golden Eagles to their four Ohio Valley Conference Tournament appearances in five seasons. With 21 wins in 2012 Bragga eclipsed the 200-win mark as a head coach for the Golden Eagles and currently owns 215 total victories. The milestone victory came on the road as Tech took down in-state powerhouse Tennessee in Knoxville by a score of 5-1. Another milestone was met under Bragga’s watch in 2012, as the baseball team put together the highest single-semester GPA in program history. Collectively, 35 student-athletes combined for a 3.177 GPA over the 2012 fall semester, an improvement of .364 over the 2012 spring semester. Twenty-five players were named to the Athletic Director’s Honor Roll, a program record for one semester. Since his debut as Tech’s head guy in 2004, Bragga owns 144 home victories. Following last season’s 21 wins, the Golden Eagles have finished six straight seasons with 20 or more wins. Five members of the 2010 Golden Eagle lineup appeared on the All-Tournament team, while senior right-hander Lee Henry was named Ohio Valley Conference Pitcher of the Year. Juniors AJ Kirby-Jones and Chad Oberacker combined for nine total All-America Team appearances, boasting selections by Collegiate Baseball News, Ping!Baseball, Baseball America, the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association (NCBWA) and the American Baseball Coaches Association. The team was also awarded the Ohio Valley Conference Sportsmanship Award as voted by coaches throughout the OVC. Additionally, four Golden Eagles were selected in the top 21 rounds of the 2010 Major League Baseball First-Year Player draft. Junior Stephen Pryor was selected in the 5th round by the Seattle Mariners, Kirby-Jones in the 9th round by the Oakland A’s, Oberacker in the 19th round by the St. Louis Cardinals, and senior Adam Liberatore in the 21st round by the Tampa Bay Rays. Recently, Oberacker was drafted by the Oakland A’s in the 25th round of the 2011 draft. In 2009, the Golden Eagles made a thrilling run to sweep the Ohio Valley Conference baseball tournament and eliminate No. 14 Alabama from the NCAA regionals, setting the standard for what proved to be an epic 2010 season. They finished the 2009 season with a 31-24-1 record, marking the first back-to-back 30 win seasons in Tech history. The Golden Eagles swept the OVC tournament, going 4-0, including back-to-back extra-inning victories over Jacksonville State to clinch the OVC title.

the coaching staff They then went on to the NCAA regional in Clemson, S.C., where they eliminated No. 14 Alabama before being eliminated by eventual regional-champion Clemson. The Golden Eagles had two all-conference team members, six alltournament team members, and the OVC tournament MVP in A.J. Kirby-Jones. Alex Henry was also named to the all-regional team at the Clemson Regional. Following the 2009 season, pitcher Ryan Dennick was drafted by Major League Baseball’s Kansas City Royals. Bragga has built a solid foundation for his program — on the field and in the classroom — during his nine seasons as Golden Eagle head coach, and is confident that Tech Baseball will continue to reach new heights in and out of the Ohio Valley Conference. In 2011, 10 Golden Eagles were named to the OVC Commissioner’s Honor Roll, marking the second time at least 10 Golden Eagles have been named to the honor roll in a season under Bragga. The veteran coach continues his work toward redefining the program with high ideals and even greater expectations. Taking over the head coaching reins in January 2004, Bragga has shown the dedication needed to win an OVC championship, and his players exhibit that same down-to-earth determination, day-in and day-out. His plan has brought about marked improvements in the team’s on-field performance, academic performance, alumni support and program facilities. On the field, Bragga’s silent resolve has taken the program from a 13-42 record in his first full year in 2005, improving 5.5 games in 2006 with a record of 18-36, making an eight game improvement in 2007 with a record of 26-28, and another seven game improvement in 2008 as the Golden Eagles went 3523-1, leading to the OVC championship and an NCAA Regional berth in 2009. With success on the recruiting trails, Bragga continues to take the TTU Baseball program to a new level. Before taking the head coaching position at Tech, Bragga spent three seasons as an assistant coach at Birmingham Southern College under head coach Brian Shoop. He spent the majority of his time at BSC working as the hitting and outfielder coach as well as recruiting for the Panthers. Under Bragga’s direction, BSC hitters batted a combined .316 during the 2002 and 2003 seasons.

In 2003, 10 Panthers hit over .300 for a team batting average of .318 overall. The Panthers scored 7.9 runs per game which ranked 15th in NCAA Division I. Before moving to the NCAA Division I for the 2002 season, the Panthers won the NAIA National Championship in 2001 as 11 Panthers hit .300 or better and averaged 8.5 runs per game. In 2001, the Panthers set a school record for most wins in a season, going 55-11. Bragga also owned some head coaching experience before coming to Tech. At the age of 25, prior to his role at Birmingham Southern, Bragga served as the head coach at Bevill State (Ala.) Community College for four seasons. Bragga took over a Bevill State baseball program that, prior to his arrival, had an all time record of 175-350 (.343), and was considered by many one of the worst programs in the state of Alabama. With the Bears going 39-20 in 1998, Bragga’s second season at Bevill State resulted in a school record for most wins in one season. That team also participated in the schools first-ever postseason tournament. In 1999, Bragga led his squad to a 40-19 record, surpassing his previous record and taking the team to another regional tournament. During his time at Bevill, his teams compiled a 148-86 record and BSCC went from a .343 winning percentage prior to Bragga’s arrival, to one of Alabama’s best Community/Junior College programs, amassing a remarkable .630 winning percentage during his time.

the coaching staff honors including second-team All-Southeast region and Southeastern Conference all-tournament first-team in 1993. In his senior season Bragga finished with a .408 batting average in SEC play, which ranked him second in the league. He also etched his name in the Kentucky baseball record books, ranking among UK’s all-time best in multiple season and career categories. During Bragga’s four-year career with UK, the baseball team compiled the most wins in any fouryear period of UK baseball, a record which was recently broken by the 20052008 Kentucky squads. After graduating from Kentucky with a degree in communications, Bragga signed as a free agent with the Cincinnati Reds organization in 1994. He played one season in the Pioneer League with the Butte (Montana) Copper Kings before moving to Charleston, W.Va., to play with the Cincinnati Reds’ Single A affiliate the following season. Bragga earned his master’s degree from the University of Alabama. Matt is married to the former Elisa Currins, a 1997 graduate of the University of Alabama. The couple are the proud parents of two children — Luke and Emerson.

Matt and Elisa with Luke and Emerson Before jumping into the college ranks, Bragga served as head coach for the Junior American Legion Baseball Team Post 208 that won the Alabama state championship in 1996. That same year, he also took on the role as assistant coach for the Tuscaloosa County High School baseball squad. One aspect that makes Bragga such an influential coach, and what some describe as a player’s coach, is that he has coached and played at nearly every level of baseball. Bragga played his collegiate career for the University of Kentucky Wildcats, earning four letters from 1991 to 1994. He played multiple positions at Kentucky, including outfield, catcher, first base and designated hitter, and also excelled at the plate. Bragga earned multiple

ASSISTANT COACH/ RECRUITING COORDINATOR

BRANDON TURNER SECOND SEASON MISSISSIPPI STATE, 2007 A two-time SEC Freshman of the Week during his playing days at Mississippi State, Brandon Turner returns for his second season as a member of the Tennessee Tech staff, bringing a wealth of experience both as a former player and as a coach. Since joining the Golden Eagle staff, Turner has been heavily involved with hitting and infield work and the results have been fantastic. In 2012, Tech finished in the top 50% in the country in fielding percentage. The Golden Eagles were even better offensively, ranking in the top-30 teams in the nation in a majority of offensive categories. Recruited by Bragga out of Walker Valley High School, Turner eventually joined the Mississippi State Bulldogs, where he quickly made a name for himself. Named second-team NCBWA All-American as a shortstop in 2007, Turner participated in the 2007 College World Series. He wrapped up his sensational freshman campaign earning consensus Freshman All-American honors due in large part to his .399 batting average, which ranked second in the SEC. He was the first Bulldog since Rafael Palmeiro to finish a season with a batting average that high and it ranked 10th on the Mississippi State all-time list for single-season batting average. Entering his sophomore season, Turner received preseason All-American honors from both the NCBWA and Collegiate Baseball. Also in 2008, he found himself drafted by the then-Florida Marlins in the 12th round. As a member of the Jamestown Jammers, Turner finished third in the New York-Penn League in batting average with a .331 clip. He was named to the NYPL All-Star Game for his efforts. In 2009, he was promoted to the Single-A Greensboro Grasshoppers. Turner began his coaching career as a member of the Chattanooga Traveling team in 2009, before serving as the advanced scout and infield coach for the Lee University Flames. In 2010, Turner helped guide the Flames to the NAIA National Championship Series. Following his time at Lee, Turner moved on to Carson-Newman, where he took on several responsibilities including the infield, hitting and recruiting. During his time in Jefferson City, Tenn., Carson-Newman finished in the top-65 in the nation in fielding percentage. In 2011, Turner got his first taste as a head coach as he helped guide the Tennessee Styx to the regular season co-Championship in the Great South league. He has also helped out at several baseball camps including Wes Hodge’s Real Sports Academy Hitting Camp and the Bobby Valentine All-American Baseball Camp. Brandon and his wife Morgan (Lyle) currently reside in Cookeville.

He wrapped up a stellar summer with a complete-game shutout in the first round of the playoffs. In his senior season, Church was voted team captain and led the team to its best conference finish since becoming an NCAA member. He also led the team with six victories and added two saves in over 40 innings of work.

The Ohio Valley Conference

From left: Beth DeBauche, Ohio Valley Conference Commissioner; Brad Walker, Associate Commissioner/Chief Operating Officer; Jennifer Gibbs, Assistant Commissioner for Championships; Kyle Schwartz, Assistant Commissioner for Media Relations; Brian Pulley, Assistant Commissioner for External Affairs; Matthew Banker, Assistant Commissioner for Institutional Services; Heather Brown, Director of Media Relations. Entering its 64th year, the Ohio Valley Conference continues to build on the success that has made it the nation’s eightholdest NCAA Division I conference.

role on what has become a national issue. In 1995, the OVC implemented a first-of-its-kind “Sportsmanship Statement,” a policy which promotes principles of fair play, ethical conduct and respect for one’s opponent. The statement has become a model for others to follow across the nation, and has answered the challenge of the NCAA Presidents Commission to improve sportsmanship in collegiate athletics.

In May 2011 the Conference expanded for the second time in four years, adding Belmont University which will begin competition in the 2012-13 academic year. The addition of Belmont will give the OVC 12 members, the most the league has had at one time in its illustrious history. The move added a second team in the city of Nashville and was the first addition to the league since Southern Illinois University Edwardsville joined in 2008. SIUE will begin regular season competition this season (2011-12) and be eligible for postseason the same year Belmont joins the league. The 2009-10 school year saw a change in leadership as Beth DeBauche was named the seventh full-time Commissioner in league history on July 28. She is currently one of just five females to be the head of a Division I conference, and one of just eight to lead a Division I conference all-time. The last three commissioners of the OVC have moved onto jobs as the commissioner of the Big Ten, Big 12 and the MidAmerican Conferences. The OVC’s proud past dates back to 1948, but seeds for the new league were actually planted in 1941. Discussions were put on hold by World War II but reemerged Feb. 27-28, 1948 at the Kentucky Hotel in Louisville as Morehead State, Louisville and Evansville merged to form the OVC. Tennessee Tech joined the OVC the following year. In the 1950s, the OVC became a pioneer on a much more significant scale socially, breaking racial barriers to providde educational and athletic opportunities to African-Americans. Through the past 63 years, 15 teams have won or shared the league’s football title. The list is led by Eastern Kentucky, winner of 20 outright or shared football crowns, including both the 2007 and 2008 championships. Former member Middle Tennessee is next with 11 titles, followed by Tennessee Tech with nine. The first Division I-AA/FCS football playoff was held in 1978 with only four teams, which is the only year through present day that the OVC did not field a playoff representative. In the late 1970s, women’s athletics began somewhat of a rebirth on the national scene as the NCAA began sponsoring and marketing women’s sports. Recognizing the need to provide increased opportunities for female athletes, the

78

OVC established women’s championships in the sports of basketball, tennis and track in 1977, with cross country and volleyball added over the next four years. Those sports were initially governed by the Association of Intercollegiate Athletics for Women (AIAW), but the overall strength of women’s programs in the league was demonstrated by the automatic bids the OVC instantly received when the NCAA became the governing body in 1982. The playing field is not the only place where OVC athletes are working hard. The league also recognizes excellence in the classroom. Six Scholar-Athlete Awards are presented yearly to male and female athletes, while others are commended for their academic success by being Medal of Honor recipients or earning a spot on the Commissioner’s Honor Roll. Additionally, the league annually presents one institutional Academic Achievement Award, as well as separate team awards in each Conference-sponsored sport. Since the College Sports Information Directors of American (CoSIDA) Academic All-America program began, the Ohio Valley Conference has had 202 student-athletes honored with the award, including 35 over the last three years. Through the early years of the league, administrators wrestled with fan behavior due to the close proximity of the Conference members and the intense rivalries which developed. Just as it did decades ago, the OVC took the leadership

5 OVC Regular Season Titles

Additionally, the OVC annually presents the Steve Hamilton Sportsmanship Award, in honor of the former Morehead State student-athlete, coach and athletics director, to a junior or senior student-athlete with significant athletic contributions who best exemplifies the characteristics of sportsmanship and citizenship. Most recently, the Conference has also implemented the OVC Institutional and Team Sportsmanship Awards, which are presented to one institution and 18 sportspecific teams voted by their peers to have best exhibited the standards of sportsmanship and ethical conduct as outlined by the OVC and NCAA. The vision of leadership demonstrated by the Founding Fathers in 1948 remains alive today as the Ohio Valley Conference prepares for the future. One example is in regard to the current trend in collegiate athletics administration for increased involvement of university presidents in setting policies and making rules. The presidents of OVC institutions, however, have always governed the Conference, long before presidential governance became a national theme. The Ohio Valley Conference sponsors the following sports: baseball, basketball, cross country, football, golf, tennis and track for men, and basketball, cross country, golf, soccer, softball, tennis, track and volleyball for women. In addition, the OVC also sponsors the combined men’s and women’s sport of rifle. Now in its seventh decade of competition, the Ohio Valley Conference has grown significantly from its humble beginnings while increasing the number of athletics opportunities it provides for students. Current league representatives include charter members Eastern Kentucky University, Morehead State University and Murray State University, along with Austin Peay State University, Eastern Illinois University, Jacksonville State University, Southeast Missouri State University, Southern Illinois University Edwardsville, Tennessee State University, Tennessee Technological University and the University of Tennessee at Martin. Belmont University will become the league’s 12th member on July 1, 2012.

NORTH OLMSTED, OHIO • LHP

LOUISVILLE BATS

Ryan Dennick spent just six games as a member of the Advanced Single-A Wilmington Blue Rocks before earning a call-up to the Northwest Arkansas Naturals of Double-A. After the call-up, Dennick spent time as a starter, reliever, and closer. He wrapped up the season with a 4.62 ERA in the Texas League. He struck out nearly a batter-per-inning with 72 in 74.0 innings. He walked only 30 batters while picking up six wins. Dennick struck out a season-best six batters on two separate occasions. In December, Dennick was picked up by the Cincinnati Reds by way of the Rule 5 Draft which aims to prevent teams from stockpiling too many young players on their minor league clubs.

campus life

For nearly 100 years, Tennessee Tech has served the various needs of the region, the state and beyond. Not only is Tech renowned as a fine institution of higher education, it also serves as a public resource center and encourages scholarly research and creative activity by its faculty and students.

Tennessee Tech students know that there is a lot more to college life than what goes on in the classroom. Nearly 200 student organizations on campus offer activities ranging from academic, athletic, cultural, political, community-oriented, social to spiritual.

Today, Tech makes a number of contributions to economic development locally, regionally and nationally. Tech’s 65,000-plus alumni occupy positions of leadership in education, business, industry, government and public service. Tennessee Tech is widely known as an institution noted for its academic quality -- an institution where the energies of the faculty, staff and students are devoted to ensuring that the university’s quality is maintained and enhanced. The university is divided into seven academic divisions offering 44 programs of study leading to the bachelor’s degree and 20 programs of study at the graduate level. More than 75 percent of the 370 full-time faculty members hold doctoral degrees.

At Tech, it’s easy to get involved and make friends. Campus recreation coordinates 11 intramural and club sports: basketball, bowling, flag football, golf, racquetball, rugby, soccer, softball, tennis, volleyball and wrestling. The Fitness Center is a free, full-service health club for students. It houses a fully equipped weight room, 25-meter indoor pool, cardiovascular equipment and an indoor track. Tech is also a center for the arts, presenting concerts, theatre productions, lectures, dance performances, films, workshops, demonstrations and art exhibits each year. And, of course there’s always an athletics event to attend. Tennessee Tech’s athletic teams compete in the Ohio Valley Conference for 14 sports on the NCAA Division I level, and students can attend all regular season athletic events absolutely free!

Considered one of the most picturesque campuses in the South -- and one of the safest -- the buildings carry an attractive Georgian style of architecture that lends the Tech campus an Ivy-league character. Tech was established in 1915 as Tennessee Polytechnic Institute, located on the site of its forerunner, Dixie College. TPI gained university status in 1965, reflecting the institution’s role as a multipurpose, state-supported university. Tech’s current enrollment continues to include students from almost all 95 Tennessee counties, along with students from more than 40 other states and about 40 foreign countries.

ATHLETICS ADMINISTRATION MARK

WILSON - Director of Athletics UNIVERSITY OF MAINE, 1991

Mark Wilson’s first eight years as Director of Athletics at Tennessee Tech have showcased his vision, energy, and enthusiasm for providing outstanding experiences for Tech’s studentathletes and fans. Highlights of his efforts include major improvements in Tennessee Tech’s athletics facilities including the Basketball Coach’s Complex and the Athletic Performance Center, high graduation and APR rates by Golden Eagle student-athletes, outstanding academic success, and excellent relationships with the campus, community and alumni. In short, Wilson has facilitated growth and excellence in all areas of TTU Athletics. In June, Wilson agreed to a five-year contract extension, keeping him at the helm of the Golden Eagle athletics program through 2017. Coming off an appointment on the NCAA Leadership Council, Wilson is beginning a four-year term on the NCAA Division I Football Championship Committee and Division I Football Issues Committee, and has been very active in the Ohio Valley Conference governance structure. Wilson, 43, has led Athletics to several milestone accomplishments during his first eight years, including enhanced facilities and fund raising, high profile staff additions, and compliance and academic success. Under Wilson’s guidance, the program has continued to focus on the academic success of its student-athletes, with soaring numbers each semester on the Athletic Director’s Honor Roll. Tech’s student-athletes have achieved their highest overall combined semester GPAs. Wilson also developed a strategic plan for Tech’s athletic facilities and has already seen some of those plans become reality. During the past five years, Tech has completed several construction and renovation projects to athletic facilities, including a spectacular, new Athletic Performance Center on the western edge of campus, a spacious, new basketball office complex in Eblen Center, a new natural grass practice field, installation of new turf in Tucker Stadium, renovating the running track, renovating the football offices, meeting rooms and locker rooms, and new lights at Tucker Stadium.

Just as important are the relationships that Wilson has developed and nurtured, including the Cookeville-Putnam County Chamber of Commerce, the student body, the campus community and the region at-large. His leadership has been instrumental in the overwhelming success in the community’s host role at Tucker Stadium for the annual Blue Cross Bowl for the TSSAA high school state championship football games. Tech has also seen growth in regional and national media exposure for its studentathletes and coaches while his hand-on approach to marketing and branding Golden Eagle Athletics has earned increased opportunities and involvement for fans and sponsors. Some of the ideas he has implemented include the Purple Pride Caravans, a new athletics logo and branding marks that have gained nationwide recognition, and an updated and modern ticketing system. Under Wilson’s direction, Tech is also on the brink of introducing an enhanced digital video presence for athletics, including free live web streaming productions and a variety of additional video programs, interviews and features that will give fans, alumni and supporters greater access to Golden Eagle teams, student-athletes, coaches and staff. During his tenure, Wilson has successfully selected and hired head coaches for six of the school’s 14 teams, and three of those hires have earned Ohio Valley Conference Coach of the Year honors. Another highly visible product of Wilson’s leadership is the increased fan support at Golden Eagle events. Last year, while winning the OVC Championship for the first time in 36 years, the Tech football team drew the largest average home attendance at Tucker Stadium in 25 years. In February, Tech set a school record for the largest attendance at a women’s basketball game. Wilson was named Director of Athletics on July 1, 2004. He came to Tennessee Tech from a position of Associate Athletics Director at Ohio University. Prior to that, he served as the Director of Athletic Marketing for the University of Massachusetts, worked as a graduate assistant in the UMass athletic department and interned with the Northwestern University ticketing and marketing departments. Wilson received his bachelor’s degree in 1991 from the University of Maine in physical education and health, and earned his master’s in sports management from the University of Massachusetts in 1994. Mark has two daughters, Katey (17) and Meaghan (12).

Additional building plans call for a new student-athlete center and an on-campus tennis center. Another step achieved under Wilson’s direction has been increased fund raising and development efforts with the goal of providing the necessary facilities and resources for Tech’s student-athletes, coaches and staff. All of those accomplishments have come while the department has continued to stay focused on compliance with all NCAA rules and regulations. The most recent NCAA announcements show that all 14 of Tech’s athletic programs are comfortably above the benchmark for compliance in the Athletic Progress Rate (APR), including two Tech teams winning Public Recognition Awards. Prior to that, the Golden Eagle softball team ranked first in the nation for cumulative team GPA for the second time in four years.

ACADEMIC SUPPORT DR. LANCE

JASITT

- Assistant Athletics Director for Academics and Student Welfare PENN STATE UNIVERSITY, 1978 Dr. Lance Jasitt serves as Assistant Athletics Director for Academics and Student Welfare. Dr. Jasitt plays a key role in the academic success of each of Tech’s varsity student-athletes, managers, and graduate assistants. His primary goals are to provide guidance and academic resources to permit student-athletes to maintain their academic eligibility under NCAA rules and to progress to graduation. In this process, Dr. Jasitt serves as a primary liaison between coaches and faculty. A detail-oriented person and a diligent worker, Dr. Jasitt has developed a solid understanding of the operations of the Athletics Department, the staff and the needs of its student-athletes. In addition to his academics/student welfare roles within Athletics, he has served in compliance and administrative operations roles in the Tech Athletics

Department since 1998. Dr. Jasitt is also highly involved in promoting reading and literacy at all age levels. He was the 2008-09 president of the TTU Council of the International Reading Association and is actively involved in that organization. He also has served on the President’s Commission on the Status of Women for seven years. Raised in York, Pa., he earned a bachelor’s degree from Penn State in 1978 and added a master’s in public administration from Valdosta State in 1987. In 1993, he received a master’s degree in education from Old Dominion University and added a Ph.D. in literacy education from Tennessee Tech in 2004. Dr. Jasitt is a former Commander in the U.S. Navy. His wife of 30 years, Donna White Jasitt, is a former Captain in the U.S. Navy Reserve. They have two children, Ian and Meagan. Ian recently received his second degree from Tech, this one in Environmental Geology. Meagan is a senior Pre-Physical Therapy major at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga.

The “WIN” program: Work Intensely Now

Marilyn Borch-Jensen Academic Advisement Secretary

Virginia Lewis Academic Coordinator

The WIN Program was implemented in the fall semester of 2004 to provide additional support for freshmen and student-athletes whose general academic progress places them at risk for maintaining eligibility and graduating. The program involves the student-athlete, coach(es), academic advisor, tutors, and others to build academic skills for success. Participation in the program is primarily based on grades, and coaches or the academic advisor may recommend additional participation at any time. All incoming freshmen meet at least one time per week with their coach to discuss academic progress and needs as well as time management and study skill techniques. Other aspects of the program include monitored study hours, tutoring, and study skills workshops.

The success of Tennessee Tech University’s athletic teams is tied closely to the academic progress of each student-athlete, and the academic performance of each Tech studentathlete is closely monitored by the coaching staff as well as an experienced staff in Academic Services, led by Dr. Lance Jasitt. Student-athletes are the most visible component of a university, entertaining thousands of fans, students, alumni, family and friends. Their athletic abilities and achievements are a focus for national attention, as athletic events not only bring back faithful alumni, but serve as a welcome mat to the university for potential new students. Student-athletes devote many hours to practice, conditioning and training in an effort to be the best they can be. These hours are not required by non-athletes in the student body, and these extra demands can compete with academics for the student-athlete’s time and energy. The Tech Athletics Department works to provide help with course content (through tutors and monitored study hours) as well as with time management and study skills and any other academic support services that will allow Tech student-athletes to maximize their academic potential.

strength and conditioning CHIP

PUGH - Head Strength & Conditioning Coach OHIO UNIVERSITY, 2000

Chip Pugh is in his fifth year as Tennessee Tech’s strength and conditioning head coach. He oversees the physical development of student-athletes in all 14 sports, providing support in building toward championships. Pugh served three years in the same position at Winthrop University where he created and developed a highly successful strength and conditioning program that helped win 12 conference championships. An alumnus of Ohio University, he was an offensive lineman on the football team while earning a bachelor’s degree in sport industry and a master’s degree in physical education. Pugh believes that the qualities that athletes can develop in strength and conditioning will not only aid in their athletic development, but will also help them build quality character components necessary for life. A native of Parkersburg, W. Va., he began his coaching career at his alma mater as an assistant strength and conditioning coach where he primarily worked with men’s and women’s track, men’s and women’s swimming, and women’s

soccer. He also assisted coach Ethan Reeve, currently the head strength and conditioning coach at Wake Forest, with football while at Ohio. After leaving Ohio University he became the head strength and conditioning coach for football at Marietta (Ohio) College, where he also worked as an assistant football coach. Additionally, during his two years at Marietta College he also served as a campus minister to the college. Pugh is a certified member of the National Strength and Conditioning Association and the Collegiate Strength and Conditioning Coaches’ Association. He also holds the Club Coach certification through USA Weightlifting. He is a Level-I certified CrossFit trainer and conducts personal training classes open to the public using the CrossFit methods. Chip and his wife, the former Nicole Carey, were married July 29, 2000. They live in Cookeville, where they are active in sprint triathlons and CrossFit. The couple has one daughter, Rory Love Pugh, born October 16, 2010. Their family grew to four on June 12, 2012, with the arrival of their second daughter, Reagan Mercy Pugh.

Tennessee Tech’s strength and conditioning program features: • Strength and conditioning coaches • A wide variety of workout stations at the new Athletic Performance Center • A comprehensive obstacle course • Nutrition analysis • Complete conditioning regimen

EMPHASIZING PLAYER DEVELOPMENT The Tennessee Tech strength and conditioning program is a blend of science, technology, nutrition and one-on-one attention to each athlete. Golden Eagle student-athletes make a year-round commitment to physically preparing to play their sport at the highest level. At TTU, a program is tailored to match each student-athlete’s individual needs with the sport-specific physical demands. This includes strength, speed, power, agility, flexibility, metabolic conditioning and motivation. This combination allows Tennessee Tech’s student-athletes to better reach their specific goals. Another major focus of the strength staff is the development of sport-specific speed, agility and conditioning.

strength and conditioning By taking advantage of expert instruction, Golden Eagle student-athletes are afforded every opportunity to maximize their athletic potential.

Development of Core Strength Imagine the body is a 3-link chain with the head and arms being one link, the torso/trunk being the second link and the legs being the third link. If the core link (trunk/torso) is weak or inflexible, there is little chance of maximizing potential because all body movement stems from the core. Train using ground-based, multi-joint lifting versus machine lifting Most athletes participate in stand up power sports using many muscle groups at once. The emphasis of training should be on total body athleticism and flexibility rather than having body weight supported by a machine and forcing isolation of just one muscle group. By incorporating ground-based lifts and exercises that focus on the total body, the athlete becomes more prepared to use their whole body in sport skills.

ASSISTANT STRENGTH COACHES

Train for Power (which results in increased speed) Power = (Mass Moved x Distance)/time. The less time it takes to move a mass a certain distance, the higher the output. As seen in the above formula, an increase in speed of movements results in an increase in power.

Train Athleticism Many factors are included in athleticism: strength, power, speed, agility, flexibility, coordination, fitness level and mental toughness are just a few. It is the goal to maximize an athlete’s overall athleticism. Train as a Team When teams train together, it provides another opportunity to develop chemistry, teamwork, leadership skills and a competitive environment. Within this competitive environment, teams can work on mental toughness, attacking the weights and maintaining a positive attitude. By enabling athletes to work on these things as a team, it helps to promote a stronger sense of unity, thus making it harder to “fold” under pressure. Make workouts short and intense There are many philosophies on how to get athletes stronger, faster and more flexible. But, when combined, these philosophies have the same three underlying principles: a) The workouts should be highly organized b) The workouts should be short in duration c) The workouts should be extremely intense The following are recommendations for athletes concerning days and times of strength training (including warmups): • In-season: 3 days / week; 30-40 minutes/workout • Postseason: 3-4 days / week; 45-60 minutes/workout • Pre-season: 4 days / week; 50-60 minutes/workout

T

here's no question Tennessee Tech University is a great place to get an education. And Cookeville is a great college town. The largest micropolitan area in Tennessee and one of the top 40 micropolitan areas in the nation, Cookeville has consistently been rated among the top 10 most affordable regions in the nation.

Cookeville boasts a mild climate, with an average temperature of 57 and four distinct seasons. Located within a day's drive of 75 percent of the nation's population, Cookeville is just off Interstate 40, which runs from the east coast to California. City life is easily accessible, as well, because Cookeville is situated within 100 miles of Nashville, Knoxville and Chattanooga — three of Tennessee's major metropolitan areas. The seat of Putnam County, Cookeville is the heart of a three-county alliance known as the Highlands, which centers Tennessee's 14-county Upper Cumberland region. We have hundreds of acres of unspoiled nature — from championship golf courses to natural preserves, state parks and top-rated lakes — close to home. There's plenty of nature inside the city limits, too; the City of Cookeville tends nine parks, including Cane Creek Park, a 262-acre natural area with a 56-acre lake. And while Cookeville is a relatively small town, we have no lack of culture. We are one of the smallest cities in the U.S. with a full-blown symphony orchestra, and our area attracts visual artists and craftspeople from across the nation, thanks to the Appalachian Center for Craft, a satellite campus of TTU. Drama also takes center stage here, with the 456-seat Cookeville Performing Arts Center cranking out productions year-round, including the award-winning Drama Center Backstage series. Cookeville is home to three museums — the Cookeville Depot Museum, the Cookeville History Museum and the Cookeville Children's Museum — and a year-round slate of events, including regular excursion trains and the annual Fall FunFest. A walkable downtown shopping district and an impressive roster of national chain stores give the retail segment a small-town feel with big-city convenience. Add to that our more than 100 restaurants and 1,400 hotel rooms, and you'll quickly see that Cookeville offers something for everyone.
