Season Outlook

The description “senior laden” is an ideal way to describe the 2012 Tennessee Tech soccer squad, as head coach Daniel Brizard heads into his third year with eight veterans in tow. Having graduated just one senior from the 2011 squad, the role that these seniors will play this season is not lost on anyone, especially Brizard. “All of these seniors could very well be on the field at once,” Brizard explained. “A lot of our success this season depends on them buying into what we’re doing. With eight seniors, if they don’t buy into the method, it will hurt us.” Last year, the Golden Eagles struggled finding the finishing bite, or the ability to come from behind to close out games. With a field full of talent, the team improved statistically from the year prior – the improvements were just not reflected in the win-loss record. “We were in more games this past year, which made it harder to take the losses,” Brizard said. “Our record didn’t necessarily reflect the improvements and talent of the team as a whole.” In 2012, the veterans will lead the team toward the ultimate goal of any squad – to be on the same page. Often times, this is easier said than done, but a strong spring season and the dynamics that will stem from five signees have the Golden Eagles confident. The seniors are looking to go out with a bigger legacy, and among those returning is two-time team MVP Kerri Reid, one of last year’s leading scorers who is expected to continue her trend of leading by example on the field. Playing the role of Tech’s primary center-midfielder, Reid gives the Golden Eagles what they ask for in a center mid – tenacity and consistency. “Kerri is a good person, both on the field and in the classroom,” Brizard said. “It’s important for Kerri to have a good year, because the team will feed off of that. She’s a fighter and she gets the job done. We have to pull her off the field kicking and screaming.” Tech also returns seniors Andrea Meloff up top, Kris Cambron, Sarah Gawthrop, Alex Stevenson, and Jacquie Watkins in the midfield, and Leigh Heffner and Julie Thompson on the back line.

THE SCHEDULE

The team’s 2012 schedule consists of 20 matches, including an exhibition contest to get the ball rolling. In addition to the 10-game Ohio Valley Conference slate, the Golden Eagles will play nine non-conference contests and an exhibition match. The majority of the team’s non-conference schedule will be played within Tennessee against in-state rivals, or in North Carolina. Brizard’s squad will kick off play on Saturday, Aug. 11 at Tennessee Wesleyan in a 2 p.m. exhibition match. The following Friday (Aug. 17) marks the team’s regular season and home opener, a 3 p.m. game against East Tennessee State. “As always, we’ve worked to put together a non-conference schedule that will complement conference play,” Brizard said. “We’re focusing a lot on regional non-conference competition with the goal of facing opponents that will prepare us for the OVC.”

September 23 will mark the start of conference action, with the Golden Eagles playing three straight at home to open up OVC play. “The OVC is proving to become more competitive every year,” Brizard said. “With a leveled playing field narrowing the gap between the top and bottom of the conference, every game takes on more significance.”

FORWARDS

Meloff returns as the veteran forward, playing alongside junior Ellie Iaciofano. Standing 5-3 and 6-0 respectively, the duo complement one another on the attacking line. A crafty player up top, Meloff had a promising spring season and has spent the past few seasons developing as a player to fit the mold of the Golden Eagle offense. The squad has learned to play to Meloff’s strengths – her ability to get in behind a defense and find slots – which should help with transition play this coming fall. Iaciofano developed into one of the team’s primary forwards last season, making 2011 her first real experience as an attack-minded player. She recorded three goals to lead the team in scoring along with Reid, but was unlucky several times in her attempts to finish. Her taller stature complements Meloff’s, giving the team a different set of strengths and options to play with, and she’s expected to contribute again on the scoring front this year. As a junior, Iaciofano already commands the respect of her teammates, and will look to be a leader the next two seasons. It will be important for her to establish herself as an effective finisher and competitor in 2012. Signee Taylor Blazei is another “cheeky” player, according to Brizard, who mimics Meloff’s style of play. She’s good on the ball, has a good eye and the ability to set up others. Brizard looks forward to having Blazei get a lot of experience and minutes this year, as she has the potential to fill during her career as a top forward or attacking midfielder.

MIDFIELD

Senior forward Andrea Meloff

The Golden Eagle midfield has one key characteristic -- depth. That’s a good thing in that Brizard plans on demanding a good bit of endurance from his midfield, specifically his wide players. “We’re going to ask the midfield to be defensive and play forward, rather than have them be in attack mode and have to recover,” Brizard explained. “Basically we’re asking the midfield and even the outside backs to be 100yard players, which is why we need subs. “We have a good pool of players who are capable of contributing in the midfield, and those who are not starting will likely be asked to play significant minutes.” Seniors Reid, Watkins, Gawthrop and Cambron, junior Emily Homan and sophomore Amanda Koch will all return as midfielders for the Golden Eagles. Watkins, a tough-nosed player with the ability to overpower her opponents one-on-one, will likely continue to patrol the central portion of the midfield, along with Reid. Meanwhile, Blazei and fellow signees Mackenzie Miller and Taylor Sutton will provide the depth that the squad is looking for. Senior midfielder Kerri Reid

Miller is a fast, versatile athlete with the ability to get behind a defense, and will be essential in giving the Golden Eagles a good rotation of fresh legs and quality minutes in the midfield. Sutton brings a hard-nosed toughness to the position with promise to win the ball by whatever means necessary. She will be called upon to make stops, and has the potential to become an anchor in the midfield over the course of her career.

DEFENSE

Three will return to the Golden Eagle back line, but the lost center-back experience in graduate Lindsey Reed will prove to be a tall order to fill. Last year, Reed played every minute of all 19 contests for the Golden Eagles at one of two center-back positions. Currently, Heffner anchors the Golden Eagles directly in front of the net at the other center-back position. Heffner is a technical player, good in the air and excellent at reading the attacking play. Her leadership will be key in directing the back line. Thompson is expected to fill the role of right side defender. Her confidence has grown over the past two seasons, and her attitude – hard-nosed, driven to win – is exemplary for that position. On the left side will be rising junior Taylor Hicks. Originally expected to be a forward, Hicks made the move to her current defensive position halfway through her true freshman season in 2010. She has settled into the position well, with her speed being her greatest asset. “You have to beat Taylor like, three times because she’s so fast,” Brizard said. She also has a powerful foot which will prove to be helpful in serving set-pieces from the left side. Three sophomores in Courtney Dedrick, Hayley Morton and Katie Phillips will compete for Reed’s vacated position in the center. Brizard rotated all three players into that position in the spring and will continue to assess, with the help of his returning back line, who will shoulder the responsibility in the fall. This is just another example of the depth that Brizard has available to him in the midfield area, as all three players are capable of sufficiently aiding in the defense-to-offense transition.

GOALKEEPERS Senior defender Leigh Heffner

A consistent, reliable goalkeeper is something that Brizard has been searching for since he took the helm at Tech, and he has recruited two freshmen with the goal of bringing that ongoing search to successful find. Jordan Brown is a promising keeper out of League City, Texas, with extensive Club and ODP experience. Brown played ODP soccer for ‘94 Region III and was a member of the US Regional Squad that finished second in the 2009 International Costa Rica Tournament. She was selected for the National Camp in Southern California in 2009 and the Region III Pool in 2008. Local product Allison Barlow of Tullahoma will also compete for a spot in the net. “The goalkeeper who gets the job done will play,” Brizard said simply. “We’re looking for someone who can provide steady goalkeeping skills that we haven’t had in the past. They’ll need to be someone the team can trust, and show consistency in practice and games.”

12 Kris CAMBRON Senior n Midfielder Soddy-Daisy, Tenn. n Notre Dame HS In 2011 (Junior): Kris tied for the team-lead in points and led the Golden Eagles in assists as a junior. She started 14 matches and played in all 18, scoring two goals and distributing three assists to notch seven points on the season. She took 24 shots, 12 of which were on goal, earning a .500 shot-on-goal percentage. Kris scored the golden goal in double overtime to give Tech a 2-1 victory over Jacksonville State on Oct. 7, finding net on a strike from 40 yards out. Her first goal of the season came against Radford on Sept. 11, when she scored from 15 yards out off a cross. She was named to the Athletic Director’s Honor Roll. In 2010 (Sophomore): As a sophomore, Kris played in all 17 matches and started in 15 of those matches. She followed a strong freshman campaign with two goals in the fall of 2010 which came in back-to-back games against UNC Asheville on Sept. 5 and Georgia Southern on Sept. 10. It was her late goal that sealed a 3-1 victory over UNC Asheville, and her goal against Georgia Southern gave Tech a 1-0 advantage at the 59-minute mark of what would become a 2-0 victory, the second straight for TTU. In the summer of 2011, Kris played for Cincinnati’s Hammer FC of the Women’s Premier Soccer League. She was named to the Athletic Director’s Honor Roll as well as the OVC Commissioner’s Honor Roll.

“Kris brings a lot of experience to the table as an outside player. She’s a strong leader in the midfield. We’re looking for her to score some goals and set up some goals. We expect her to be a large factor in our play. She is a crafty player that can exploit weak spots on any defense.” u Coach Daniel Brizard

In 2009 (Freshman): Kris was efficient in several facets of the game, as she appeared in 20 contests, making 16 starts. Her four goals ranked third on the squad, while her four assists led the entire team and was tied for second in the OVC. Scored the gamewinning goal in two contests: versus UT Martin (9/25) and at Morehead State (11/6). Kris earned a few honors in November for her exceptional play including: OVC Cofreshman of the year, first-team All-OVC, AllOVC newcomer team, and All-OVC tournament team. HIGH SCHOOL: As the 2008 Chattanooga Area Player of the Year, Kris has the ability to beat her defender 1-on-1, and has excellent skills with the ball. She was a two-time all-state selection, and team MVP in 2008 at Notre Dame in Chattanooga, leading her team to the state semi-finals four consecutive years.

8 Sarah GAWTHROP Senior n Midfielder Chattanooga, Tenn. n Baylor HS In 2011 (Junior): Sarah started 16 contests and played in all 19 games, averaging 56 minutes of action per match. She scored two goals and assisted on another score, finishing the year with five ponts. Sarah took 26 shots, 15 of which were on goal for a shot-on-goal percentage of .577. Her first goal of the season came against Belmont on Aug. 21 when she bent a corner kick into the net. Her second goal came on a rebound in the box against East Tennessee State on Aug. 26, giving Tech a 1-0 lead in what eventually became a 2-1 victory. She was named to the Athletic Director’s Honor Roll. In 2010 (Sophomore): Sarah started in 16 of 17 matches in her sophomore season and scored two goals on the year. Her first goal of the season came in the early part of the second half and gave Tech a 1-0 lead over UNC Asheville on Sept. 5, setting the tone for a 3-1 win. Sarah scored her second goal of the year on a penalty kick when she was taken down in the box against Eastern Illinois on Oct. 17. The goal was Tech’s only one of the day as they fought to a 1-1 tie. Cheetah, the nickname her teammates have given her, is most known for her speed.

“We’re looking for Sarah to provide some experience on the flank and get in and score some goals. She’s our prime corner kick taker. She’s a very good server of the ball and she has a ton of speed. She can use both feet too, which is a rarity these days.” u Coach Daniel Brizard

In 2009 (Freshman): Sarah was the only Golden Eagle to start all 22 games in 2009. She finished second on the team in minutes played with 1820. She logged 100 minutes or more in six different contests. HIGH SCHOOL: Sarah played soccer at Baylor School in Chattanooga, and was team captain in high school. Playing the forward and mid-field positions, she led her team to the state finals in 2005 and 2007, and the state semi-finals in 2006. In 2007 Sarah was named all-region first team and “Best of the Preps” second team. Sarah also competed in track and was the 2008 400-Meter and 4-by-1 relay state champion.

4 Leigh HEFFNER Senior n Defender Golden, Colo. n Faith Christian HS In 2011 (Junior): Leigh continued to assert herself as one of the conference’s best defenders in her junior season, garnering All-OVC Second Team honors for the second straight season. She helped anchor the Golden Eagle back line while finishing among the team leaders in playing time, seeing more than 1,600 minutes on the season. She started and played in 18 games and scored one goal. Her first career goal was an important one, coming when she headed in a Sarah Gawthrop corner kick in overtime, providing the golden goal and giving Tech a 1-0 victory over Austin Peay on Oct. 16. She took six shots on the season, four of which were on goal, and finished with a shot percentage of .167 and a shot-on-goal percentage of .667. She was named OVC Defensive Player of the Week on Oct. 18.

“Leigh is a mainstay on our back line and we’re looking for her to provide some leadership back there. She’s a solid defender and we are looking for her to score a few goals as well. No matter how the game is going, I can always look to her to remain calm and focused.” u Coach Daniel Brizard

In 2010 (Sophomore): As a sophomore, Leigh started 16 of 17 matches and played nearly 90 minutes in all of her appearances. Leigh’s hard work paid off as she was named to the All-OVC second team and received the team’s Defensive MVP award. She also received Defensive Player of the Week honors after playing 200 minutes in weekend matches against Southeast Missouri and Eastern Illinois, where she anchored the defense as the Golden Eagles won their first conference match of the season against SEMO. Against EIU, she helped Tech hold the Panthers to one goal in securing a 1-1 tie through 110 minutes of play. She was named to the Athletic Director’s Honor Roll as well as the OVC Commissioner’s Honor Roll. In 2009 (Freshman): Leigh was a mainstay on defense her freshman year, as she tallied 1764 minutes of playing time. She appeared in every Golden Eagles contest, and had five shots on the season.

Lindsey Reed 2012 Tennessee Tech Woman of the Year

Editor’s Note: This story focuses on Lindsey Reed, winner of the 2012 Tennesse Tech Woman of the Year Award. Reed marks the second straight member of the TTU soccer team to receive this honor. The story was originally written by Thomas Corhern of the Herald Citizen.

No one ever said being a student-athlete was easy. From all the long hours of practice and games to working towards a degree, so much time and effort goes into all of it. In Lindsey Reed’s case, she devoted every single moment of her time toward academics, athletics, and community service, becoming a wellrounded student-athlete. And even among a tough field of candidates, Reed’s background said it all and made her an ideal choice for the 2012 Tennessee Tech Athletics Woman of the Year. “Lindsey has been a role model student and a role model athlete during her time at Tennessee Tech,” said TTU athletics director Mark Wilson. “I think it’s very fitting that she was named the Tech Woman of the Year. She’s really done it all. She didn’t get a whole lot of recognition from her position on the field, but she has been so consistent in her leadership and as a student, and we’re just so proud of her.” Reed beat out Brooke Basten (softball), Leah Bradley (cross-country/track), Rachel Glidden (basketball), Tacarra Hayes (basketball), Traci Jones (cross-country/track), Holly Thomas (softball) and Emily Weinzetl (track) for this year’s award and is the second winner in as many years from the women’s soccer program, joining last year’s winner Brooke Mayo. “I am honored,” Reed said Saturday via e-mail. “There are some amazing athletes at Tech on and off the field and I am blessed to be considered one of them.” Reed admitted that it took a lot of different things to excel as a student-athlete. “These last four years have taught me dedication,” Reed said in a statement to the NCAA as Tech’s nominee for the national award. “Being a student-athlete in itself takes a strong will to succeed. In order to be a benefit to the team, I had to find the motivation to improve on my own and find the strength of will to focus at every practice, no matter how little sleep or how many big tests I have to distract me. I could not have been a leader if my teammates were not able to see my loyalty. The same can be said about the rest of my endeavors. I need to be just as dedicated to the community and my education in order for them not to be overshadowed by my devotion to my soccer team. If I set my mind to research, or helping at a school, and don’t look back, there will always be time and results. It is easy to be lazy and justify not going to community service one week; what is missing just once? That will turn into two and three and snowball out of control. It is much harder to stick to your commitments, but the smiles on the kids’ faces prove to be worthwhile every time.” On the pitch, Reed played a position that didn’t get a lot of statistics, but her ability as a defender on the field was incredibly valuable to the Tech women. Reed was one of only five players who started every game in the 2011 campaign and played every minute of every game. “In the two years I’ve coached her, I think she played every minute of every match,” said Tech coach Daniel Brizard. “As a defender, you’re not going to get the flashy statistics, but she helped us greatly with her experience and her calming presence.” Reed was named the Ohio Valley Conference’s Defensive Player of the Week for her efforts in the adidas Gamecock Soccer Classic as Tech allowed just one goal against Louisiana Tech and New Mexico State.

“She’s really meant a lot to this team,” Brizard said. “Being an upperclassman and everything she’s been through, she provided some invaluable leadership on and off the field.” Her work in the classroom was even more amazing. Graduating in May with a 3.97 grade point average as a chemical engineering major, Reed was also a nominee for Tennessee Tech’s prestigious Derryberry Award. And her academic ventures aren’t finished yet. Currently leading backpacking trips for the Rocky Mountain Mennonite Camp, then heading abroad to Honduras, Reed will return to her studies in the fall to attend medical school. “I tell people all the time that I felt dumber just sitting in the room with her,” Brizard joked. “She’s definitely the epitome of the student-athlete. She was a great athlete and, in the classroom, she excelled. She had that dedication and she wants to go to medical school. Doing that after completing an engineering degree is just amazing. It just shows you the discipline someone has and can have if they really put their mind to it.” While at Tech, Reed was a member of the university’s Honors Program and the Associated Scholars Guild, was a nominee for the Lowe’s Senior CLASS award, was a two-time recipient of the OVC’s Academic Medal of Honor and was on the Dean’s List stretching from Fall 2008 to Spring 2012. She was in several honor societies, including Kappa Mu Epsilon (mathematics), Tau Beta Pi (engineering) and Omega Chi Epsilon (engineering) and participated in undergraduate research in the effect of sucrose on cement hydration. Still, one of the most important parts of the student-athlete experience is giving back to the community. While in Cookeville, Reed volunteered at Parkview Elementary and gave some time to the Putnam County Animal Shelter, in addition to tutoring her fellow student-athletes and serving as a co-chairman of the Intramurals Committee. Back in her hometown of Denver, Colo., Reed volunteered 80 hours at the emergency department at Denver Health last summer and spent some time with the Inner City Health Center, and, in the past, spent time volunteering in soup kitchens and the medical clinic at Broadway Assistance Center. “She embodied what it meant to give back,” Brizard said. “She’d take any opportunity and she’d ask me if we, as a team, could go over and do this or do that, take a couple of girls and do this. It’s refreshing to get kids wanting to do things. Lindsey wanted to do something, wanted to go out and help. That’s nice and it was infectious on our team. People saw that and they wanted to do the same things.” And it was all about maintaining that balance between sports, classes and service. “Sometimes student-athletes get a bad rap,” Brizard said. “At a school like Tech where academics is a huge priority, athletics is right up there with it and you can maintain that balance. Lindsey showed that with one of the toughest degrees you can get at this school that you can have that balance by being successful on the soccer field.”

The Ohio Valley Conference

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.

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. 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 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 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 OVC established women’s championships in the sports of

60

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 AllAmerica 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 role on what

Purple Pride n 2012

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.

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.

u “TTU among most affordable universities in the nation”   – Newsweek Where Quality Counts

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. 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 more than 40 programs of study leading to the bachelor’s degree and more than 20 programs of study at the graduate level. More than 75 percent of the 370 full-time faculty members hold doctoral degrees. Considered one of the most picturesque campuses in the South -and one of the safest -- the buildings carry an attractive Georgian style 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.

Campus Life

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. 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!

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.

Athletics Administration Mark

WILSON

University of Maine, 1991

v Director of Athletics

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 student-athletes 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 athletic 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. 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

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.

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. 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.

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).

Tech has also seen growth in regional and national media exposure for its student-athletes 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

Academic Support 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.

v Assistant Athletics Director for Academics and Student Welfare

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 studentathletes, 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 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.

toward championships.

Chip Pugh is in his fifth year as Tennessee Tech’s strength and conditioning head coach. He oversees the physical development of studentathletes in all 14 sports, providing support in building

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.

Strength and Conditioning 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.

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

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, 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
