GOLDEN EAGLE FOOTBALL Tech’s new Athletic Performance Center: Building a Better Athlete In the Spring of 2011, Tennessee Tech held the Grand Opening for its brand new, state-of-the-art Athletic Performance Center for Golden Eagle student-athletes. The 25,000 square-foot facility will benefit every Golden Eagle student-athlete. Considered as one of the finest such facilities in the Ohio Valley Conference, the APC features 10,000 squarefeet for the new strength & conditioning room and 10,000 square-feet for indoor practice. At an estimated cost of $2 million, the facility is located west of the softball complex close to Pine Ave. To help Tech’s student-athletes by providing support for the purchase of equipment, please contact Kevin Bostian, associate athletics director for Development, either by phone (931-372-3929) or email him at: KBostian@tntech.du.

O

ne of the byproducts of a long and successful coaching career is a checklist of big numbers. Wins and losses. Players who receive their college degrees. Friendships, fans and memories. All of those totals really begin to pile up. For Watson Brown, entering his 41st season as a collegiate coach and his 29th as a head coach, many of those numbers are, quite simply, incredible. In the coming season, Brown will be on the sidelines for his 300th game as a head coach. And, at some point in the season, Watson and his brother Mack, the head coach of the Texas Longhorns, will achieve a record by earning more Division I coaching victories by brothers than anybody in history. The Brown brothers come into 2013 with 352 career combined victories. They need 11 to surpass the standing record of 362 held by Vince and Bill Dooley. But, when Watson roams the sidelines this season, none of those personal milestones will be in his thoughts -- he will be out to lead the Golden Eagles to their second Ohio Valley Conference championship in three years.

GOLDEN EAGLE FOOTBALL After guiding Tech to a share of the 2011 OVC title, his program hit a major detour in 2012 when injuries wiped out the roster. The veteran coach kept his program moving forward, and this year the Golden Eagles should reap the benefits -- many, many players got to see game action last year in place of those who were injured. Brown’s staff has done a remarkable job in recruiting the past several years, and has raised the talent level walking the sidelines in Tucker Stadium. This year, the roster is loaded with promising talent. Born and raised in Cookeville, Watson Brown came back home in 2007 to take the helm of the Golden Eagle program. Five years later, he led Tech to its first OVC title in 36 years. The veteran coach has used an even-tempered approach to teach his young staff and players. The 2013 will be his seventh season at the Tech helm. Brown, 63, was named in December 2006 as the new head football coach of the Tennessee Tech University Golden Eagles. He returned to his hometown as the 10th head football coach in Tech history. Brown has previously coached at two schools that are members of the Ohio Valley Conference, serving as head coach at Austin Peay for two years and assistant coach at Jacksonville State, then a Division II program, for two years. Brown returned to the town where he was a talented baseball, football and basketball player at Cookeville High School. He signed with Vanderbilt out of high school and was a standout quarterback for the Commodores from 1969-72. He is best remembered by many Commodore fans for leading Vandy to a continued on next page

GOLDEN EAGLE FOOTBALL 14-10 victory over Alabama in 1969. Brown was named the Sports Illustrated National Back of the Week for his efforts. In his stint as TTU head coach, Brown has worked hard in his effort toward rebuilding the Golden Eagles into Ohio Valley Conference champions and has had the support of the community and the Upper Cumberland Region. A popular speaker, Brown has addressed numerous clubs and organizations throughout the region during his time at Tech. Raising the talent level at Tech is a key step in taking the Golden Eagles to a conference championship. It’s a step that Brown is familiar with — after all, working to rebuild struggling programs has been a calling card for Watson Brown. The remarkable growth of the UAB program under Brown’s guidance was a major factor in UAB’s entry into Conference USA play in 1999. That year for their C-USA debut, the Blazers recorded a 5-6 overall record against a brutal all FBS schedule, finishing in a four-way tie for second place with a 4-2 league record. Under Brown, UAB was bowl-eligible three times in seven seasons and in 2004 attained its previously elusive first bowl invitation with a trip to Honolulu to play in the Sheraton Hawai’i Bowl. A proven veteran in the coaching profession, Brown is known as one of the best offensive minds in football. He made his head coaching debut in 1979 in the Ohio Valley Conference directing the Austin Peay Governors, and at age 29, he was one of the youngest head coaches in the nation. He posted 7-4 records in both 1979 and 1980, twice being runner-up for Ohio Valley Conference Coach of the Year honors. Brown began his coaching career as a graduate assistant at Vanderbilt in 1973 and was a full-time assistant coach for the first time in 1974 as Pat Dye’s quarterbacks and receivers coach at East Carolina. The Pirates were 7-4 in 1974 and 8-3 in 1975, posting victories over several Atlantic Coast Conference opponents. Brown was the offensive coordinator at Jacksonville State University in 1976 and 1977 (at the time JSU was a Division II program, and currently is a member of the OVC). During those two seasons, the Gamecocks

GOLDEN EAGLE FOOTBALL finished 7-4 and 11-3, and played for the Division II national championship in 1977. Brown was the quarterbacks and receivers coach at Texas Tech in 1978, where the Red Raiders posted a 7-4 record in what was supposed to be a rebuilding year. While serving as offensive coordinator at Vanderbilt for two seasons (1981-82), Brown’s offense set 57 school records and the Commodores posted an 8-3 record and made a Hall of Fame Bowl appearance (1982). In 1983, Brown was head coach at Cincinnati, where he led the Bearcats to a season-opening 14-3 victory at defending national cham-

pion Penn State. He ranks that road victory as one of the most memorable in his long coaching career. Before coaching at Vanderbilt, Brown was athletic director and head football coach at Rice (1984-85). He led the Owls to two of their best offensive seasons. From 1986-90, Brown was the head coach at Vanderbilt, his alma mater. In 1991 and 1992, Brown was the offensive coordinator at Mississippi State under head coach Jackie Sherrill. During those two seasons, the Bulldogs posted a 14-10 record, made two bowl appearances and upset three nationally-ranked opponents.

GOLDEN EAGLE FOOTBALL Prior to going to UAB, Brown was the offensive coordinator at the University of Oklahoma (1993-94). Coaching is a big part of Brown’s family. His brother Mack Brown is the head coach at Texas and won a national championship with the Longhorns. His grandfather, Eddie “Jelly” Watson, was a legendary prep football coach, compiling a 106-51-13 record at Cookeville High School. Brown’s brother Mel resides in Cooke­ville. Watson Brown is married to the former Brenda Arnold, and they have two children; daughter Ginny, who was a four-year letterwinner at Georgia State University (1996-00), and a son Steven, who was a wide receiver/quarterback for the Golden Eagles in 2007 and has joined his father’s coaching staff. After filling a role as a graduate assistant coach in 2008, Steven is now an assistant coach and the team’s offensive coordinator. Watson Brown is Tech’s 10th head football coach since 1922, joining the ranks of Loyall Duck, Putty Overall, Hooper Eblen, Star Wood, Wilburn Tucker, Don Wade, Gary Darnell, Jim Ragland and Mike Hennigan. Brown’s many achievements as a student-athlete and later as a coach in the state of Tennessee have not gone unnoticed. Six years ago he was inducted into the Tennessee Sports Hall of Fame. In 2010, the National Football Foundation recognized Watson by selecting him as the recipient of the Roy Kramer Contribution to Football Award.

In 2008 he moved into an assistant coaching role and in 2012 he took on the duties of Offensive Coordinator. He coaches the team’s runningbacks. Until this season, he has also coached Tech’s quarterbacks, working with a pair of recordsetters in Lee Sweeney and Tre Lamb, both now assistant coaches on the Tech staff. In 2009, he helped Sweeney accomplish his most successful season, and also helped mold several young signal-callers including freshman Tre Lamb and junior Cass Barnes. The past three years that work paid dividends as Lamb became one of the most prolific signal-callers in Tech history, setting numerous school passing, scoring and total offense records. An experienced player who enjoyed two successful seasons at UAB and one at Tech, Steven had one season of eligibility remaining in 2008 but passed on the chance to play his final year for the opportunity to begin his coaching career. The son of head coach Watson Brown, Steven played two seasons at UAB then transfered to Tech in 2007 where he played both wide receiver and quarterback for the Golden Eagles. A highly recruited prep quarterback out of high school, he originally enrolled at Auburn in 2004, then moved to UAB and made the transition to receiver in 2005. In 2006 he played in 11 of 12 games for the Blazers, ranking fifth on the team with 14 catches for 200 yards and two touchdowns. In his one season for the Golden Eagles, he had 12 catches for 164 yards as an inside receiver. In the middle of the season, with injuries to the top three quarterbacks, Steven stepped under center and played quarterback. He finished the year going 22-for-34 for 252 yards and one touchdown, posting a 119.02 quarterback rating. In high school, he was named honorable mention on the Class 6A AllState team in 2003 as a senior quarterback, helping lead Vestavia Hills to a 12-2 record and an appearance in the state semifinals.

A veteran of 30 years in the coaching ranks, Donn Landholm joined coach Watson Brown’s Golden Eagle staff as an assistant coach early in 2013 to will work with linebackers and special teams. In July, his assignment changed as he was selected as the defensive coordinator. He will also continue to coach linebackers. Landholm spent the four previous seasons on the Purdue staff where he worked with the outside linebackers, advanced scouting of upcoming opponents and recruiting. He moved to Purdue in 2009 from Eastern Kentucky, where he coached from 1997 to 2008. Landholm was linebackers coach from 1997 to 2004, defensive coordinator from 2005 to 2007 and linebackers coach and recruiting coordinator in 2008. In 2005 and 2006, the Colonels ranked among the OVC top three in total defense, allowing merely 328.5 and 309.0 yards per game. The Colonels led the nation in turnover margin in 2007 at plus-18, with 35 takeaways (24 interceptions and 11 fumble recoveries). Landholm also was in charge of the Eastern Kentucky special teams from 2002 to 2007. In 2003, the Colonels led the nation with a 16.5-yard punt return average and, in 2006, they were ninth with a 22.9-yard kickoff return average. From 1993 to 1996, Landholm was the offensive line coach at Blinn (Texas) Junior College. Blinn won back-to-back junior college national championships in 1995 and 1996, going 12-0 both seasons.

GRIMES

v Assistant Coach / Strong Safeties & Nickels Chris Grimes learned an awful lot about playing defense during his four-year career on the field for the Golden Eagles, when he was considered one of the team’s hardest-hitters. In 2010, he returned to his alma mater to teach the lessons he learned to the current Golden Eagle players, and in 2013 he is in his fourth season as a member of the Watson Brown’s TTU coaching staff.

Orlandus Kirby has taken on a new title in 2013 while handling the same duties of coaching the Golden Eagle tight ends. After a season as a graduate assistant, Kirby has been elevated to an assistant coach position. A four-year tight end for the Golden Eagles from 2004 through 2007, Kirby has made a career change and moved from banking to coaching.

Back on campus, he was welcomed back to the coaching staff to share his knowledge of the game with Tech’s group of H-backs. A four-year letterwinner during his high school days in both football and basketball at Jackson Central-Merry High School, Kirby helped capture district and regional championships as a junior and senior. He was named 7-5A All-Region and earned All-West Tennessee distinction. He played in eight games as a true freshman in 2004, then took over as the starter in his sophomore season. The team’s full-time starter for two seasons, he missed much of his senior season with injuries before returning to the starting spot for the final month in 2007. He notched 20 career catches for 157 yards, and developed into an effective blocker.

GOLDEN EAGLE FOOTBALL Game #1

Tech wins season opener behind Lamb, Urbano career-bests August 30, 2012

Tucker Stadium / Cookeville, TN / Attendance: 10,130 COOKEVILLE -- Former high school teammates and current Tennessee Tech seniors Tre Lamb and Adam Urbano put on an offensive show on Thursday night as the Golden Eagles defeated the Hampton Pirates 41-31 in the 2012 season opener. Lamb and Urbano both recorded careerhigh marks in the game as head Coach Watson Brown remained unbeaten in Tech home-openers. Lamb and Urbano, who were high school teammates at Calhoun High School in Calhoun, Ga., led the Golden Eagles offensive juggernaut that put up 548 yards of total offense on 82 plays. The 548 yards were the second highest total of a Watson Brown led team at Tech. Lamb completed 24 of 35 passes for 339 yards and tied a career-high with four passing touchdowns. His 339 yards were the second most of his career. Urbano, who transfered from Georgia Southern two years ago, had his best game as a member of the Golden Eagle football team and of his career, rushing for 158 yards and one score on 25 carries. His previous career-high of 153 yards came at Georgia Southern. Also a member of the Calhoun High School squad with Lamb and Urbano, Da’Rick Rogers, who transfered to Tech earlier this week from the University of Tennessee, put up solid numbers in his Golden Eagle debut. The leading receiver in the SEC one year ago, Rogers finished with three grabs for 75 yards

and a key touchdown with four seconds left in the first half. Senior receiver Zack Ziegler had a career-best two touchdown grabs in the game and added 43 yards. He scored the first points of the game, sneaking behind the defense for a 34-yard touchdown off the arm of Tre Lamb. His second touchdown, a nine-yard reception from Lamb, came in the fourth quarter and ended a 17-point run by the Pirates. Another receiver, sophomore Cody Matthews, had a career night for the Golden Eagles, hauling in three passes for a team-high 89 yards. Lamb climbed up the Tennessee Tech record book lists in the game, moving up to fifth on the all-time list for career passing yards and up to sixth on the all-time list for career offense. The 339 yards marked just the second time he passed for over 300 yards and marked the ninth 200-yard game of his career. Hauling in his first career touchdown, junior Ryan Tilghman made a circus-like, one-handed grab in the corner of the endzone in the second quarter to give the Golden Eagles a 14-0 lead. Sophomore kicker Zach Sharp chipped in two field goals in the game, one from 25 yards and one from 28 yards. He added 11 total points on the night.

GOLDEN EAGLE FOOTBALL Game #2

Golden Eagles first 2-0 Division I team following 42-14 win September 6, 2012

Tucker Stadium / Cookeville, Tenn. / Attendance: 6,306 COOKEVILLE -- The Tennessee Tech Golden Eagle football team rolled to its second consecutive win Thursday evening, defeating the North Greenville Crusaders 42-14. The victory earned the Golden Eagles a spot atop every other Division I football program as the only two-win team in the nation. The 2-0 start was the first for the Golden Eagles since 1989 and marked just the fourth time since 1980. The Golden Eagle attack was led by a pair of familiar faces in senior quarterback Tre Lamb and senior running back Adam Urbano. Tech piled up over 450 yards for the second straight week, with 122 contributed by Urbano on the ground and 274 from Lamb through the air. Urbano tallied his second straight 100-yard contest, rushing for 122 yards and two scores on just 14 carries for a 8.7 yards-per-carry average. The game marked his first career twotouchdown game as a Golden Eagle to give him a team-high three rushing touchdowns on the season. Tre Lamb achieved an impressive career milestone on the nights, becoming just the fifth Golden Eagle to pass for over 4,000 yards in a career. The senior now sits fifth on the Tennessee Tech all-time lists for both passing yards and total offense. Lamb completed 18 of 26 passes for 274 yards and three touchdowns. The three scores throught the air marked the first time Lamb put together back-to-back three touchdown performances. Junior receiver Da’Rick Rogers came up huge in the passing game in the first half, grabbing 5 balls for 88 yards and a touchdown. The performance outweighed last week’s numbers that earned him OVC co-New-

comer of the Week. Freshman receiver Jordan Smith got things started, nabbing his first career touchdown off a 62-yard bomb from Tre Lamb. It was just the second catch of Smith’s career as he finished with 68 receiving yards. Adding his second touchdown reception of the season was junior receiver Ryan Tilghman, snaring a 32-yard pass from Lamb. He wrapped up the evening with three receptions and 49 yards receiving. Local Cookeville talents, senior defensive back Taylor Hennigan and sophomore running back Stephen Bush, both made their prescences felt tonight. Bush had a careerday, rushing for 65 yards and a touchdown on 14 carries. Hennigan, who recorded a career-high nine tackles, also scooped up a fumble and returned it 15 yards to set up a key Golden Eagle score right before halftime. The touchdown gave the Golden Eagles a two-score lead going into halftime and was ultimately the turning point in the game for Tech. The offense didn’t look back as it scored midway through the third quarter to open up a 28-7 lead. The Golden Eagle defense had a slew of solid performers while holding the Crusaders to just 14 points. Senior defensive back Will Johnson led the team with 13 tackles and added the forced fumble that was picked up by Hennigan. Sophomore d-back Austin Tallant picked up 11 total tackles and fellow sophomore linebacker Tra’Darius Goff added 10 stops of his own. Tech forced three turnovers in the contest, including the fumble and two interceptions. Both freshman defensive back William Dillard and sophomore defensive back Cory Webber recorded their first career picks in the game.

Golden Eagles lead early, eventually lose to No. 4 Oregon 63-14 September 15, 2012

Autzen Stadium / Eugene, Ore. / Attendance: 57,091 EUGENE, Ore. -- For a few fleeting moments, the Tennessee Tech football team was on top of the world. However, the Oregon pass rush combined with the Ducks’ blazing team speed brought the Golden Eagles back down to earth, and the fourth-ranked FBS team in the country thrilled another sellout home crowd with a 63-14 victory Saturday in Autzen Stadium. Tech surged to a sudden 7-0 lead on a 23-yard touchdown pass from Tre Lamb to Da’Rick Rogers, but an unrelenting Duck pass rush sacked Lamb five times in the first half and limited the explosive Tech offense to 45 total yards by the break. The so-called “quack attack” was led by redshirt freshman quarterback Marcus Mariota, accounting for 308 yards through the air to go along with four touchdowns. The young gun complete 21 passes out of 28 attempts. Sophomore running back De’Anthony Thomas accumulated 135 total yards on the day, including two scores.

cial teams also made some big plays of their own. Sophomore Tra’Darius Goff led the special teams’ highlights of the game, blocking a second quarter field goal attempt by the Ducks. It marked the second career block for Goff, who also gathered up nine tackles in the game to lead the Golden Eagles. Another special teams play made noise in the game, when senior linebacker Kedrick Towles recovered an Oregon fumble on the first punt of the game for the Golden Eagles. The recovery led to the first scoring drive for Tech and gave the Golden Eagles momentum early in the contest. Senior linebacker Howard Griffin added a takeaway, intercepting Mariota in the second quarter. The interception marked the first of his career and marked a rare mistake by the red-shirt freshman on the day. The 57,091 fans made their presence felt during the game as the deafening crowd marked the fifth largest the Golden Eagles have played in front of in program history. Sophomore running back and local Cookeville talent Stephen Bush matched a career-best game with exact numbers, rushing for 63 yards on 14 carries for the second straight week. The Tech rushing game eclipsed the century mark on the day, the third straight week for the offense. The Golden Eagles finished with 114 yards on the ground.

Record breaking night not enough as Golden Eagles fall in 2OT September 22, 2012

Houck Stadium / Cape Girardeau, Mo. / Attendance: 8,327 CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. -- The Tennessee Tech football team couldn’t match Southeast Missouri’s 34-yard field goal in the second overtime, missing its own 34-yard attempt and falling to the Redhawks 41-38 in double overtime. With several record-breaking performances on the offensive side of the ball, victory looked like a certainty for the Golden Eagles. Ultimately, it was the Redhawks of Southeast Missouri who came up with the biggest play in the end. Junior receiver Da’Rick Rogers broke several personal and school records, making both a career-high and TTU record 18 catches for 303 receiving yards, also a school record. He also hauled in two touchdowns through the air, scoring for the fourth straight game as a Golden Eagle. Quarterback Tre Lamb also had a record-breaking performance, throwing for a Tech-best 481 yards on a TTU record 38 completions. He added three touchdowns passes plus a key touchdown on the ground to tie the game in the fourth quarter and eventually send the game into overtime.

Murray State rolls to 70-35 OVC victory over Golden Eagles September 29, 2012

Stewart Stadium / Murray, Ky. / Attendance: 9,794 MURRAY, Ky. -- It wasn’t as if the highpowered Murray State offense needed any help Saturday night, but the Racers also got touchdowns from the special teams (punt return) and defense (interception return) and nearly added another on a fumble return. That’s pretty much enough information to let Tennessee Tech football fans know how things went in Stewart Stadium. Not well. Right from the opening kickoff, things were topsy-turvy for the Golden Eagles, and the Racers rolled to a 70-35 Ohio Valley Conference victory. The Golden Eagles, (2-3/0-2 OVC) finally return home to Tucker Stadium next week, following a threegame road trip that resulted in three straight losses. Tech will host Jacksonville State Saturday (Oct. 6) at 7 p.m. Murray State (2-3/1-1 OVC) got 599 total yards of offense, with

Tucker Stadium / Cookeville, Tenn. / Attendance: 7,141 COOKEVILLE – While the Tennessee Tech defense gave it everything they had on a rainy Saturday night, the Jacksonville State offense was the side that shined, controlling the clock with a monster running game and possessing the ball for over 41 minutes The Golden Eagle offense struggled to find its rhythm during the game due to a strong night of coverage from the Gamecock secondary. The JSU pass rush made its presence felt on the night, continuously forcing Tech quarterback Tre Lamb out of the pocket and into several rushing and scrambling situations. Lamb finished second in the Golden Eagle rushing attack with 41 yards on the ground. Junior running back Bud Golden led the way for Tech in the ground game, gathering 45 yards on seven carries. Junior running back Doug Page picked up his first and second career rushing touchdowns during the contest.

Tucker Stadium / Cookeville, Tenn. / Attendance: 5,668 COOKEVILLE – With just under 15 minutes to play, all looked well for the Tennessee Tech football team as they led the Eastern Kentucky Colonels 28-20 and looked poised to earn their first Ohio Valley Conference victory. EKU had different plans. The Colonels used a 14-play, 77yard drive to climb within two before tying the game at 28. The defense then took over, forcing two interceptions on back-to-back possessions to set up the go-ahead score and an insurance touchdown. EKU would go on to win 42-28. The pass rush for the Colonels put serious pressure on Lamb the entire game, forcing him to scramble around and eventually throw a late game interception. The defensive front also made the rushing attack a tough go in this one, allowing just 15 yard on the ground.

Tennessee State squeaks by Golden Eagles 22-21 on last-second score October 27, 2012

Hale Stadium / Nashville, Tenn. / Attendance: 11,373 NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The Tennessee State Tigers picked the perfect time to finally get into the end zone Saturday afternoon, scoring their first touchdown of the game with no time left on the clock to tie the Golden Eagles 21-21. TSU then added the gamewinning PAT to seel the come-from-behind win. The Golden Eagles were brilliant in the red zone for nearly the entire game, holding the Tigers to five field goals in their first five trips inside the 20-yard line. The final touchdown came after a fourth down conversion by TSU quarterback Michael German, who appeared to fumble the ball before being called down by the officials. Tech recovered the “would-be” turnover in the end zone. With just one second to go, German scrambled around before finally finding A.C. Leonard for the winning score.

Sophomore quarterback Darian Stone, who earned his first career start, had a break-out game, rushing for 86 yards and accounting for all three Tech scores. He passed for 77 yards and two touchdowns, leading the Golden Eagles down the field on two long scoring drives. He started with a one-yard score on the ground to give the Golden Eagles a 7-0 lead. After four consecutive field goals by Tennessee State, Stone led Tech on its second scoring drive, throwing a 41-yard strike to true freshman Eric Belew on third down and 28 yards to go. It marked the first receiving score of Belew’s career. TSU added its fifth field goal to take a 15-14 lead into the fourth quarter. Stone then executed another key drive, taking Tech down the field on nine-play, 4:11 drive that ended with a Cody Matthews touchdown reception. Junior punter Chad Zinchini had a career day, averaging 52.6 yards per punt, including a career-best 60-yard boot. His numbers were even more impressive considering the 15 mph wind that he faced half the game.

Golden Eagle sophomore quarterback Darian Stone, making just the second start of his career, accounted for 272 yards of offense including a career-high 119 rushing yards on 20 carries. He became just the second TTU quarterback to Tennessee Tech (2-7) Eastern Ill. (6-3) 1 09:18 1 01:39 2 08:16 3 11:43 3 08:03 3 04:56 3 04:12 4 10:26 4 02:27

Stone also passed for 153 yards including a 14-yard touchdown pass to Da’Rick Rogers in the third quarter that tied the contest at 17-17. Garoppolo was 27-for-41 for 376 yards while throwing one interception. He was sacked once. Stone was 22-for-43 with one interception, and was not sacked. Defensively, Gourdan Wickliffe topped EIU with 13 total tackles and one interception, which he returned 28 yards. Robert Haynes added 12 tackles for the Panthers. For Tech, sophomore Tra’Darius Goff was the top tackler with 12 while James Huguely added 11 tackles along with his first career interception. Austin Tallant also reached double digits in tackles to Tech with 10.

GOLDEN EAGLE FOOTBALL Game #10

Golden Eagles stun No. 23 UT Martin in overtime, 45-44 November 10, 2012

Tucker Stadium / Cookeville, Tenn. / Attendance: 3,709 COOKEVILLE – Sophomore quarterback Darian Stone accounted for 466 total yards to lead the Tennessee Tech offense, and several players stood out on defense including a tackle by Tommie McBride on a two-point conversion attempt that clinched a 45-44 overtime victory for the Golden Eagles Saturday against No. 23 UT Martin in Tucker Stadium. Stone tied a school record by rushing for 190 yards on 25 carries and passed for 277 yards and three touchdowns as the Golden Eagles matched one of the most explosive offenses in the Ohio Valley Conference. Stone’s 466 yards was the second-most in school history, behind a 474-yard game by Tre Lamb earlier this year at Southeast Missouri. Tech piled up 575 total yards while UT Martin countered with 579 yards. The Skyhawks, hoping to clinch a share of the OVC title, watched the Golden Eagles storm back in the fourth quarter after trailing 31-17 midway through the third. Stone led Tech on scoring drives of 80, 79 and 80 yards to lift the Golden Eagles to a 38-31 lead with 1:10 remaining. The third score in that stretch was a 79-yard touchdown pass to Ryan Tilghman, the eighth-longest pass completion in Tech history. But UTM pulled off a desperation pass with six seconds remaining when Derek Carr launched a 46-yard heave toward the end zone. Tech cornerback William Dillard appeared to make an interception to end the game, but the ball skipped out of his hands and into the hands of UTM receiver Chris Thompson for the score that sent the game to overtime. Tech kept the ball on the ground for five of its six plays on its OT possession, getting a first down at the two on a carry by sophomore Doug Page on fourth-andone. Page plowed into the end zone on the next snap with his second TD of the game and Zach Sharp’s sixth PAT made it a 45-38 Golden Eagle lead. Carr completed a 12-yard pass for a first down, but was sacked on third down by Marcus Edwards, his second sack of the contest. On fourth-and-16, Carr

found Jeremy Butler in the corner of the end zone for the improbable touchdown. On the PAT attempt, holder James Satterfield had to pass up the chance to let kicker Cody Sandlin tie the game when he took an errant snap and ran toward to the right. McBride beat his blocker and reached Satterfield, forcing a fumble that bounced toward the Golden Eagle sideline and ended the game. Tech rushed for a season-high 298 yards on 54 attempts, with Stone tying the school record for most rushing yards by a quarterback set by Randy Beaman in 1991. It was Stone’s second consecutive 100-yard rushing effort. His 466 yards of offense broke the previous school record of 437 set in 2006 by Lee Sweeney. Page added a career-best 81 yards on 18 carries, including a par of two-yard touchdowns. Stone was 16-for-29 for 277 passing yards, with one interception and three touchdowns. Da’Rick Rogers had five catches for 80 yards and Cody Matthews added five catches for 61 yards and two touchdowns. He grabbed a 20-yard strike from Stone to open the scoring on the game’s opening drive, then hauled in another 20-yard TD on the first play of the fourth quarter. Tilghman had three catches for 123 yards, his first career 100-yard performance. Tevin Barksdale was UT Martin’s leading rusher with 71 yards on 16 carries as the Skyhawks gained 157 on the ground. Carr went 35-for-52 for 422 yards and four touchdowns in the losing effort. His top receiver, Jeremy Butler, finished with 13 catches for 142 yards and two touchdowns. Quentin Sims added six catches for 61 yards including a 10-yard TD in the first quarter, while Thompson finished with five catches for 74 yards. Freshman cornerback Demario Donnell, making his first career start, led Tech with a career-best 15 tackles and one pass breakup. Sophomore linebacker Tra’Darius Goff added 14 tackles, Dillard had 12 and Austin Tallant made 10 stops.

Golden Eagle comeback falls just short at Austin Peay November 17, 2012

Governors Stadium / Clarksville, Tenn. / Attendance: 3,738 CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. -- Tennessee Tech fought back from a most frustrating first half and had the chance to tie or win in the final minutes after recovering an onsides kick, but couldn’t clear the final hurdle in a surprising 38-31 loss at Austin Peay Saturday afternoon in Governors Stadium. Down 31-0 at halftime after making myriad mistakes in the opening two quarters, the Golden Eagles pulled all the right switches in the second half and rallied to within one touchdown behind quarterback Darian Stone’s efforts. Jamel Cook recovered an onsides kick at the APSU 45 with 2:12 to play, and Stone moved his team to the 30. A holding penalty, a pair of false starts and a sack left Tech facing a third-and-32, and Stone & Co. ran out of miracles. Stone earned his third 100-yard rushing game, the first Tech quarterback to do so, finishing with 102 yards on 22 carries. He was 20-for-40 for 245 passing yards and two touchdowns. Freshman Ladarius Vanlier had nine carries for a career-high 84 yards and Bud Golden added 11 carries for 56 yards. Doug Page

Austin Tallant led the defense with 10 tackles to finish the year with 94, while Tra’Darius Goff added seven to lead Tech with 101 stops. Tech finished with 501 yards of offense, including 256 rushing, but was whistled for 13 penalties for 117 yards and lost three of six fumbles.

Now in its 66th year, the Ohio Valley Conference continues to build on the success that has made it the nation’s eighth-oldest NCAA Division I conference. 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 gave 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. Subsequently, the league has shown its stability over the past decade, seeing only one member institution depart over the past 13 years. 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 six females to be the head of a Division I conference, and one of just nine 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 Mid-American 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 provide educational and athletic opportunities to African-Americans. Through the past 65 years, 15 teams have won or shared the league’s football title. The list is led by Eastern Kentucky, winner of 21 outright or shared football crowns (including sharing the 2011 championship). Former member Middle Tennessee is next with 11 titles, followed by Tennessee Tech with 10. 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 OVC established women’s championships in the sports of basketball, tennis and track in 1977, with cross country and volley-

ball 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 215 student-athletes honored with the award, including 36 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

The Ohio Valley Conference 215 Centerview Drive, Suite 115 Brentwood, Tenn. 37027 (615) 371-1698 www.ovcsports.com

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. 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, Belmont 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. .

Robert Hill Johnson Award Winners

Senior wide receiver Tim Benford was named the recipient of the 2011 Robert Hill Johnson Award, becoming the third player to receive the award three times. He joins Larry Schreiber and Larry Shipp as the players with three-time honors. Robert Hill Johnson, a native of Sparta, Tenn., was a student and assistant football coach at Tennessee Polytechnic Institute when he was killed in an auto accident on January 14, 1952, at the age of 22. The son of Mr. and Mrs. A.E. Johnson, he attended White County High School and was a standout in football for one year. He then transferred to The Baylor School in Chattanooga where he earned three football letters. He enrolled at the University of Alabama, but a shoulder injury ended his playing career. In the fall of 1951 Johnson became a student at TPI, where he also coached offensive and defensive ends. After just one season at TPI, Johnson was killed instantly when his car crashed into a concrete bridge railing at Cripple Creek, about seven miles east of Murfreesboro, on U.S. Highway 70. The Jan. 25, 1952, edition of the Tennessee Tech Oracle said Johnson “exemplified all that is fine and good in the great game of football,” and urged that the university do something to honor his memory. Since then, Tech’s highest football honor has been called the Robert Hill Johnson Award. It is presented annually to the player who makes the largest contribution to Tech during the season and is selected by members of the football team. The first winner, based on his play during the 1951 season under Coach Johnson, was end Flavious Smith, now in the Golden Eagle Sports Hall of Fame. 1951 1952 1953 1954 1955 1956 1957 1958 1959 1960 1961 1962 1963 1964 1965 1966 1967 1968 1969 1970 1971 1972

Tech’s crowd of 12,831 for the 2007 game against Cumberland University was the largest opening day crowd in the 44-year history of Tucker Stadium. Tucker Stadium, the home venue for the Tennessee Tech football program since the Golden Eagles moved into the facility in 1966, underwent an extensive surface renovation in 2007. The facility upgrades included the installation of 24/7 turf by The Motz Group, as well as renovations and a new surface to the nine-lane track. In 2008, new lights were installed at the stadium, and in 2009 the working press box received a major overhaul and technological upgrades.

Tucker Stadium will host the TSSAA Tennessee State Championship Games through the 2016 season. The venue is named in tribute to former Golden Eagle coach Wilburn Tucker. The center stage of the stadium is Overall Field, named to recognize longtime Tech coach and administrator Putty Overall. The stadium features a two-level press box on each side, with the West Box hosting the working press and the East Box hosting the president and his guests. With the addition of the 24/7 turf, the latest in technology, material and equipment was used to ensure that Tucker Stadium is one of the finest facilities in the Ohio Valley Conference. Tucker Stadium opened for gridiron action for the 1966 season with seating for 12,500. In the first game in the facility, UT- Chattanooga came to town and handed coach Don Wade's Golden Eagles a 17-7 loss. Two weeks later, Tech posted its first victory in the stadium, topping East Tennessee State, 14-3. The facility was expanded to its present capacity of 16,500 prior to the 1971 season. In 39 college football seasons, it has hosted 1,532,281 fans at 221 games. Tech has hosted 21 crowds of better than 12,000 fans and owns a 12-8-1 record in

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.

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!

The Tennessee Tech Athletic Department unveiled a new brand on Aug. 31, 2006, with an all-new set of logos for the Golden Eagles. The brand is new, but the tradition remains -the name Golden Eagles. How did TTU adopt the name? In the first quarter of this century, Tennessee Polytechnic Institute was a tiny school, located in the rugged, mountainous Upper Cumberland region where Golden Eagles were plentiful, soaring above the lush, upland forests. It's easy to understand how those early students and faculty could narrow their choices for their athletic team's nicknames to "Golden Eagles" or "Mountaineers." On February 14, 1925, the nickname "Golden Eagles " was officially adopted. The school newspaper, The Oracle, printed a story that outlined the efforts of a committee to suggest several possible nicknames to Athletic Association members for their consideration. The two most popular names were "Golden Eagles" and "Mountaineers," and the association, by a vote of 139-18, proudly declared its preference. It wasn't until 27 years later that a tangible mascot found its way to the campus. Several Tech

students braved a driving night rainstorm to pilfer a huge block-tin eagle statue from the charred ruins of a resort hotel in Monteagle. They painted the creature - with a wingspan of over six feet - a glistening gold, and suspended it from the rafter for public inspection at the following day's basketball game in Memorial Gym. Then-Governor Frank G. Clement, a lifelong friend of the hotel owner, was in Cookeville to speak . He worked out a compromise between his friend and the school students, who wanted to retain the eagle as their mascot. Over the years, a wide variety of artwork and drawings have been used to represent the Tennessee Tech Golden Eagles. Some of those include a drawing which appeared in media guides in the mid 1970s, and a cartoon-style mascots in the early 1980s that was dubbed ‘the purple chicken” by Tech students.

WILSON

v Director of Athletics

University of Maine 1991

Tennessee Tech’s Mark Wilson was named in June as one of four winners of the Athletic Director of the Year Award for the Football Championship Subdivision, an honor that is selected and presented by the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics (NACDA). “I am humbled that Tennessee Tech’s faculty athletic representative, Dr. Jeff Roberts, nominated me, and I’m honored to be selected by my peers at NACDA for this award,” Wilson said. “I love working hard for our student-athletes and community so they have pride in everything Tennessee Tech Athletics.” TTU President Philip Oldham recognized the efforts that led to Wilson’s selection. “Mark Wilson’s accomplishments and leadership have earned him this award and the respect of his peers and col-

180

leagues,” Oldham said. “Most importantly, Mark measures his own successes by how well TTU student-athletes perform in the classroom and on the field. His expectations and vision for our athletic programs continue to represent the university well.” Upon his arrival at Tennessee Tech in 2004, Wilson embarked on an ambitious enhancement program to improve every facet of intercollegiate athletics at Tennessee Tech. Tennessee Tech’s annual team GPA improved from a 2.79 in 2003-04 to 3.16 in spring semester 2013, including an all-time high semester of 3.2 in the spring of 2010. Private fundraising has enhanced facilities for TTU studentathletes, highlighted by the construction of a 25,000 square-foot Athletic Performance Center and state-of-the-art basketball offices. He initiated a new branding and standard graphic identity program for regional and national recognition of TTU athletics and under his leadership, TTU’s teams have been highly active supporting community outreach programs such as Habitat for Humanity and Mustard Seed Ranch (a local home for disadvantaged youth). Wilson’s hiring decisions have also paid off. Twenty-two Ohio Valley Conference (OVC) regular season and tournament championships have been won, along with the 2012 OVC Sportsmanship

Award. The 2011 football team under Watson Brown won its first conference championship since 1975. Sytia Messer’s (TTU’s first female African-American head coach) and Jim Davis’ women’s basketball teams have won two OVC championships in the last three seasons. The tennis team, under the direction of two-time OVC Coach of the Year Kenny Doyle, has gone unbeaten in OVC play while winning the regular season championship each of the past two years. Wilson, 44, has served as chair of the OVC Board of Director of Athletics and represented the OVC on the NCAA Leadership Council. Wilson currently serves on the FCS ADA Executive Committee and the NCAA Division I Football Championship Committee and Football Issues Committee. Wilson’s first nine years as Director of Athletics at TTU have showcased his vision, energy, and enthusiasm for providing outstanding experiences for Tech’s student-athletes and fans. In addition to major improvements in Tennessee Tech’s athletics facilities, high graduation and APR rates by Golden Eagle student-athletes, and outstanding academic success, Wilson has also cultivated excellent relationships with the campus, community and alumni. In short, Wilson has facilitated growth and excellence in all areas of TTU Athletics Following an appointment on the NCAA Leadership Council, Wilson is currently serving a four-year term on the NCAA Division I Football Championship Committee and Division I Football Issues

GOLDEN EAGLE FOOTBALL Committee, and has been active in the Ohio Valley Conference governance structure. Wilson also developed a strategic plan for Tech’s athletic facilities and has already seen some of those plans become reality. During the past six 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. Additional building plans call for a new student-athlete center and an oncampus 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). 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 student-athletes and coaches while his hands-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 has 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 give fans, alumni and supporters greater access to Golden Eagle teams, student-athletes, coaches and staff. Wilson was named Director of Athletics on July 1, 2004. He came to Tennessee Tech from a position of Associate Athletic 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 (18) and Meaghan (13).

GOLDEN EAGLE FOOTBALL 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 student-athlete 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.

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.

GOLDEN EAGLE FOOTBALL 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.

PUGH

Ohio, 2000

v Director of Athletic Performance /Head Strength and Conditioning Coach Chip Pugh is in his sixth 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 welcomed their first daughter, Rory Love Pugh, in October of 2010. Their family grew to four on June 12, 2012, with the arrival of their second daughter, Reagan Mercy Pugh.

GOLDEN EAGLE FOOTBALL 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.

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

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, therefore 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 trainig (including warmups): * In-season: 3 days / week; 30-40 minutes/workout * Post-season: 3-4 days / week; 45-60 minutes/workout * Pre-season: 4 days / week; 50-60 minutes/workout

Rob

SCHABERT

v Assistant Athletics Director for Sports Information and Broadcasting St. Cloud State, 1977

Now in his 32nd year on the Tennessee Tech athletics staff, Rob Schabert is assistant athletics director for sports information and broadcasting. He joined the Tech staff on Sept. 8, 1982, and has been going full-speed ever since, working not only in publicizing Tech’s student-athletes and staff but also in promotions and marketing for the athletics department. In September 2008 he was inducted into the Hall of Distinction at Minnesota State University (Mankato). An active member of the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA), he has attended the organization’s annual workshop in 31 of his 36 years in the profession. He has served on numerous CoSIDA committees, including Ethics, Academic All-America and Writing, and he currently serves on the Olympic Liaison Committee. In 2004, he was voted winner of the university’s Outstanding Professional Award, and in July 2005 was promoted to his current title. Schabert has won dozens of national publications and writing awards, including “Best in the Nation” from USA Volleyball for his annual media guide six times. In addition to award-winning publications, he has kept pace with the fast-changing world of the sports information profession, moving Tech smoothly into the digital age and the exploding world of social media. Schabert, 57, has established several programs within the department. He created the Athletic Director’s Honor Roll in 1987 and initiated the President’s Awards program in 1991. He also established the Woman of the Year/ Man of the Year awards along with the Outstanding Male and Female Athlete awards. He is active in the TTU Sports Hall of Fame selection process and serves as the emcee of the annual Hall of Fame Dinner. Schabert has promoted the selection of numerous Tech Academic All-Americans and is extremely active in promoting both the academic and athletic accomplishments of Tech’s studentathletes. Another wing of his operation is the day-to-day production and operations of the vast Tech athletics web site, TTUsports.com. Rob and his staff also serve as the hosts to all media attending athletics events on campus. Over the past several years, many of the interns who have worked for Schabert have moved into full-time positions in the Sports Information profession at a wide variety of colleges and universities, including Appalachian State, UAB, Xavier, Idaho, Texas State, New Mexico, Minnesota State (Mankato) and FLorida Atlantic. A Minnesota native who learned the trade under the guidance of his father, Bob (a long-time Minnesota Sportswriter), Rob earned his bachelor’s degree in mass communications from St. Cloud (Minn.) State University in 1977, spent one year in the Minnesota Twins public relations office, and was SID for five years at Mankato State University. He was a charter member of the St. Cloud chapter of Sigma Delta Chi, the Society of Professional Journalists. In 2002, Rob was a volunteer with the Salt Lake Olympic Committee as a member of the Press Operations staff. Rob and his wife, Joan, have two grown children who are also in the public relation business -- Matt (Morehead State sports information) and Kristen (U.S. Army public affairs). They also have one grandson, Jacob.

The lunches feature a relaxed, informal setting each Monday in the Eagles’ Nest in Eblen Center. The first lunch of the 2013 season is scheduled for Monday, Sept. 2, following Tech’s opening game against Cumberland. It will be held every Monday through Nov. 25, from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., a total of 13 weekly lunches.

Fans can reserve an Insiders’ Lunch ticket to the entire year for $110 per person, a cost of less than $10 per week for the 13 weekly events. Fans ordering a ticket to the entire season of the Insiders’ Lunch can include it with their season ticket order, or purchase the meals separately. The meals will be catered by Chartwell’s, Tech’s on-campus food service. For Insiders’ Lunch tickets, or for more information, visit or call the Athletics Ticket Office in Eblen Center at (931) 372-3940.
