B U S H S TA D I U M

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

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

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

HEAD COACH

MATT BRAGGA 11TH SEASON • KENTUCKY, 1994 2010, 2013 OVC COACH OF THE YEAR

The 2013 and 2010 Ohio Valley Conference Coach of the Year and the 2009 Tennessee Baseball Coaches Association Coach of the Year, Matt Bragga recently finished his 10th season at the helm of the Tennessee Tech baseball team, leading the 2013 Golden Eagles to their third OVC championship season in the past five years. 2013 was another record-breaking year for Bragga’s squad as they compiled a school record 40 wins and an Ohio Valley Conference record 24 victories. The 2013 squad ranked near the top in the nation in several major categories, covering all facets of the game: pitching, defense, and offense. The team ranked seventh in the country in scoring (7.3 runs/game), 13th in fielding percentage (.979), seventh in home runs per game (.95), 26th in batting average (.303), eighth in slugging percentage (.464), and second in strikeouts per nine innings (9.0). The 2013 club also had eight members make the All-OVC first or second team, six of whom were underclassmen. The team also had one National Player of the week and one National Pitcher of the week. The 2013 baseball team tied a school record with a 14-game win streak and beat the No. 2 nationally ranked Vanderbilt Commodores on the road. No team in any sport, in the history of Tennessee Tech athletics had ever beaten a higher ranked team prior to the win at Vanderbilt. At the conclusion of the 2013 season, Bragga’s Golden Eagles compiled an 8-4 record against teams that reached the 64 team NCAA Regional field including a mark of 5-3 against opponents ranked in the top 35 in the country. Off the field, the 2013 team excelled as well, as they set a program record for team G.P.A. They finished the fall semester with a 3.177 mark and bettered that in the spring with 3.215. Twenty-six out of 35 team members had a 3.0 G.P.A. or higher this spring. This is the fifth year out of the past six where a new team G.P.A. record was set and then broken the next school year. In 2012, one of Bragga’s former student-athletes, Stephen Pryor, reached the Major Leagues with the Seattle Mariners. Pryor had been a fifth round pick of the Seattle Mariners in 2010 and flashed a 100 mph fastball in his MLB debut against the Chicago White Sox in June of 2012. Offensively in 2012, the Golden Eagles were splendid, ranking 26th in the nation in batting average (.299), 13th in home runs per game (.92), 19th in on base percentage (.391), and 29th in slugging percentage (.434). On the mound, Matthew Shepherd helped lead the pitching staff and was drafted by the San Diego Padres in the June MLB draft. Five players from the 2012 team were named All-Conference and powerhitting first baseman Zach Stephens was named second team All-Region. The 2011 Golden Eagles finished fourth in the league standings as four student-athletes were named to All-OVC teams. Slugger Zach Stephens was named to the TPX freshman All-American Team and 2010 First Team All-American Chad Oberacker was drafted for the second time in his Tech career, going to the Oakland Athletics. In the classroom, the 2011 team posted the best team G.P.A. in school history with a 2.94 combined fall and spring mark. In 2010 the Golden Eagles finished the season winning 15 of their last 16 conference games to win the Ohio Valley Conference regular season championship,

T H E C O A C H I N G S TA F F their second title in as many years. The team was also voted the league’s Sportsmanship Award winner. 2010 also marked the first time in history that the Tech program had won 30+ games in a season for three straight years. Individually, five team members were voted to All-Conference teams and sluggers Chad Oberacker and A.J. KirbyJones were both named TPX/ABCA first team All-Americans, the first time in school history that two players had been named first team All-America in one decade, let alone one season. Beyond being ranked 29th nationally in batting average (.332) and 12th in strikeouts per nine innings (8.7), the team also boasted the second highest team G.P.A. in its history, garnering a 2.915. The 2010 club also set a program record for Major League Baseball draft picks in a season when four Golden Eagles heard their names called in the MLB Draft. Right handed flame thrower Stephen Pryor went to the Seattle Mariners in the fifth round, all-time home run king A.J. Kirby-Jones went to the Oakland A’s in the ninth round, all-time hits leader Chad Oberacker went to the St. Louis Cardinals in the 19th round, and power left handed pitcher Adam Liberatore was chosen by the Tampa Bay Rays in the 21st round. All four of these young men are still playing as Pryor is in the big leagues with the Mariners, Liberatore in Triple A with the Rays, Oberacker in Double A with the A’s, and Kirby-Jones in Double A with the Padres. In 2009, the Golden Eagles made a thrilling run to sweep the Ohio Valley Conference baseball tournament and eliminate No. 14 Alabama from the NCAA regionals, setting the standard for what proved to be an epic 2010 season. They finished the 2009 season with a 31-24-1 record, marking the first back-to-back 30-win seasons in Tech history. The Golden Eagles swept the OVC tournament, going 4-0, including back-to-back extra-inning victories over Jacksonville State to clinch the OVC title. They went on to the NCAA regional in Clemson, S.C., where they eliminated No. 14 Alabama before being eliminated by eventual regional-champion Clemson. The Golden Eagles had two all-conference team members, six all-tournament team members, and the OVC tournament MVP in A.J. Kirby-Jones. Alex Henry was also named to the all-regional team at the Clemson Regional. Following the 2009 season, pitcher Ryan Dennick was drafted by Major League Baseball’s Kansas City Royals. Off the field the 2009 club established the top G.P.A. mark in school history with a 2.928 mark for the year. Bragga has built a solid foundation for his program — on the field and in the classroom — during his nine and a half years as head coach, and knows that Tech baseball will continue to reach new heights in and out of the Ohio Valley Conference. In 2011, 10 Golden Eagles were named to the OVC Commissioner’s Honor Roll, bringing the total number of players who have earned the honor to 65. This is

the second time at least 10 Golden Eagles have been named to the honor roll in a season under Bragga. The veteran coach continues his work toward redefining the program with high ideals and even greater expectations. Taking over the head coaching reins in January 2004, Bragga has shown the dedication needed to win multiple OVC championships, and his players exhibit that same down-to-earth determination, day-in and day-out. His plan has brought about marked improvements in the team’s on-field performance, academic performance, alumni support and program facilities. On the field, Bragga’s silent resolve has taken the program from a 13-42 record in his first full year in 2005, improving 5.5 games in 2006 with a record of 18-36, making an eight game improvement in 2007 with a record of 26-28, and another seven game improvement in 2008 as the Golden Eagles went 35-23-1, leading to the OVC championship and an NCAA Regional berth in 2009 and two more OVC Championships in 2010 and 2013. With success on the recruiting trails, Bragga continues to take the baseball program to a new level. Before taking the head coaching position at Tech, Bragga spent three and a half years as an assistant coach at Birmingham Southern College under head coach Brian Shoop from July 2000 to December 2003. He spent the majority of his time at BSC working as the hitting and outfielder coach as well as recruiting for the Panthers. Under Bragga’s direction, BSC hitters batted a combined .316 during the 2002 and 2003 seasons. In 2004, after accepting the job as Tennessee Tech head coach Bragga, led his former Birmingham-Southern ball club win the Big South Conference title, winning 47 games and losing just 18. They received an at-large birth to the NCAA Regional’s in Athens, GA in BSC’s first year eligible for NCAA D-I post season play. In 2003, the BSC team went 33-18 as 10 Panthers hit over .300 for a team batting average of .318. The Panthers scored 7.9 runs per game which ranked 15th in

T H E C O A C H I N G S TA F F During his time at Bevill, his teams compiled a 148-86 record and BSCC went from a .343 winning percentage prior to Bragga’s arrival, to one of Alabama’s best Community/Junior College programs, amassing a remarkable .630 winning percentage during his time. Before jumping into the college ranks, Bragga served as head coach for the Junior American Legion Baseball Team Post 208 that won the Alabama state championship in 1996. That same year, he also took on the role as assistant coach for the Tuscaloosa County High School baseball squad. One aspect that makes Bragga such an influential coach, and what some describe as a player’s coach, is that he has coached and played at nearly every level of baseball. Bragga played his collegiate career for the University of Kentucky Wildcats, earning four letters from 1991 to 1994. He played multiple positions at Kentucky, including outfield, catcher, first base and designated hitter, and also excelled at the plate. Bragga earned multiple honors including second-team All-Southeast region and Southeastern Conference all-tournament first-team in 1993. In his senior season Bragga finished with a .408 batting average in SEC play, which ranked him second in the league. He also etched his name in the Kentucky baseball record books, ranking among UK’s all-time best in multiple season and career categories. During Bragga’s fouryear career with UK, the baseball team compiled the most wins in any four-year period of UK baseball, a record which was recently broken by the 2005-2008 Kentucky squads.

Matt and Elisa with Luke and Emerson NCAA Division I. For the 2002 season, BSC’s first as an NCAA D-I member, the Panthers finished with a 32-20 record. Before moving to the NCAA Division I for the 2002 season, the Panthers won the school’s first ever NAIA National Championship in 2001 as 11 Panthers hit .300 or better and averaged 8.5 runs per game. In 2001, the Panthers set a school record for most wins in a season, going 55-11. Bragga also owned some head coaching experience before coming to Tech. At the age of 25, prior to his role at Birmingham Southern, Bragga served as the head coach at Bevill State (Ala.) Community College for four seasons. Bragga took over a Bevill State baseball program that, prior to his arrival, had an all-time record of 175-350 (.343), and was considered by many one of the worst programs in the state of Alabama. With the Bears going 39-20 in 1998, Bragga’s second season at Bevill State resulted in a school record for most wins in one season. That team also participated in the schools first-ever postseason tournament. In 1999, Bragga led his squad to a 40-19 record, surpassing his previous record and taking the team to another regional tournament.

After graduating from Kentucky with a degree in communications, Bragga signed as a free agent with the Cincinnati Reds organization in 1994. He played one season in the Pioneer League with the Butte (Montana) Copper Kings before moving to Charleston, W.Va., to play with the Cincinnati Reds’ Single A affiliate the following season. Bragga earned his master’s degree from the University of Alabama. Matt is married to the former Elisa Currins, a 1997 graduate of the University of Alabama. The couple are the proud parents of two children — Luke and Emerson.

ASSISTANT COACH/ RECRUITING COORDINATOR

BRANDON TURNER THIRD SEASON MISSISSIPPI STATE, 2007 A former All-American and All-SEC performer, Brandon Turner returns for his third season as a member of the Tennessee Tech baseball staff, bringing a wealth of experience both as a former player and as a coach. Since joining the Golden Eagle staff, Turner has worked with the infielders and hitters and heads all recruiting responsibilities. In the 2013 season, the Golden Eagle team ranked seventh in the nation in scoring (7.3 runs/game), seventh in home runs per game (.95), eighth in slugging percentage (.464), 13th in fielding percentage (.979), and 26th in batting average (.303). The team shattered the previous program record for fielding percentage of .969. In 2012, Tech finished in the top 50% in the country in fielding percentage. The Golden Eagles were even better offensively, ranking in the top 30 in a majority of offensive categories. On the recruiting trail, Tennessee Tech has seen results since Turner has taken over as recruiting coordinator. In just one season in his new position, Turner helped bring three players who went on to garner all-conference honors as well as play crucial roles in breaking the school record for wins and becoming the program’s first 40-win team as well as winning an OVC Title. He also led the signing of a top 100 class for 2013 graduates, according to Perfect Game. Recruited by Bragga out of Walker Valley High School, Turner eventually joined the Mississippi State Bulldogs, where he quickly made a name for himself. Named second-team NCBWA All-American as a shortstop in 2007, he wrapped up his sensational freshman campaign earning consensus Freshman All-American honors due in large part to his .399 batting average, which ranked second in the SEC. He was the first Bulldog since Rafael Palmeiro to finish a season with a batting average that high, ranking 10th on the Mississippi State all-time list for single-season batting average. Also in 2007, Turner participated in the College World Series where he went 5-for-9 with a home run in two games. Entering his sophomore season, Turner received preseason All-American honors from both the NCBWA and Collegiate Baseball and was voted one of the top three most pure hitters in the SEC according to College Baseball Insider. In 2008, Turner was drafted by the Florida Marlins in the 12th round. As a member of the Jamestown Jammers, Turner finished third in the New York-Penn League in batting average with a .331 clip. He was named to the NYPL All-Star Game for his efforts. The Jammers went on to be defeated in the NYPL Championship Series. In 2009, he was promoted to the Single-A Greensboro Grasshoppers where he hit .281 while performing under a utility role in the infield. Turner began coaching in 2009 where he was appointed head coaching duties of the 17U Chattanooga Cyclones. In the fall of 2009, he was named the head of advanced scouting and infield coach for the Lee University Flames. That same year, Turner helped guide the Flames to the NAIA National Championship Game where he coached future professional players Jose Cuevas, Junior Rodriguez, Scott Swinson, and Matt Gilson. Following his time at Lee, Turner moved on to Carson-Newman, where he took on several responsibilities, including the infield, hitting and recruiting. During his time in Jefferson City, Tenn., Carson-Newman finished in the top 65 in the nation in fielding percentage. The team finished with an overall record of 27-27, ranking fourth in the conference. In 2011, Turner was named head coach of the Tennessee Styx, leading them to the regular season co-Championship in the Great South Collegiate Summer League. Brandon and his wife Morgan (Lyle) currently reside in Cookeville.

Entering its 64th 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 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 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 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 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, 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.

UNIVERSITY ADMINISTRATION DR. PHILIP OLDHAM UNIVERSITY PRESIDENT • FREED-HARDEMAN • 1980 DR. PHILIP B. OLDHAM, who joined the university July 1, 2012, as its ninth president, is a former collegiate tennis player who understands the demands on student athletes and who values how college athletics enhance the university and surrounding community. President Oldham previously served as provost and senior vice chancellor of academic affairs at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, a position he had held since 2007. He received his bachelor’s degree in chemistry from Freed-Hardeman University in 1980 and his doctorate in analytical chemistry from Texas A&M University in 1985. He spent a year following his graduate work as a Wellcome Research Fellow at Burroughs Wellcome Co. (Glaxo Smith-Kline) before joining the faculty at Mississippi State University in 1986. Oldham served as head of Mississippi State University’s chemistry department for five years prior to becoming MSU’s College of Arts and Sciences dean in 2001. During his five years as provost at UTC, enrollment grew 28 percent to more than 11,400 students. He led efforts to improve student retention and graduation rates resulting in a 15 percent increase in freshmen retention in just three years. Under his leadership, UTC established the Center for Advisement and Student Success, created the Math Plaza and initiated UTeaChattanooga to educate future teachers. He oversaw the addition of doctoral programs in advanced nursing practice and occupational therapy as well as the redesign of summer school. Under his guidance, the university raised significant private support, received board approval to create the University Honors College and launched a creative new “Degree in 3” program designed to accelerate degree completion at reduced student costs. Oldham has served on statewide task forces to develop the new higher education funding formula for Tennessee and to create universal transfer pathways to provide seamless student transfers across all Tennessee public colleges and universities. Along with his administrative accomplishments, Oldham has authored more than 35 peer reviewed research articles in analytical chemistry, along with two patents and approximately 100 conference presentations. His research has been financially supported by the National Science Foundation, American Chemical Society, U.S. Department of Defense, U.S. Department of Agriculture, U.S. Geological Survey and private industry. He has served on a number of scholarly editorial boards and as a peer reviewer for both the NSF and National Institutes of Health. Oldham and his wife, Kari, are proud of their family, which includes three sons (Clay, Paden and Sam), a daughter (Audrey) and a daughter-in-law (Rebecca).

ATHLETICS ADMINISTRATION MARK WILSON DIRECTOR OF ATHLETICS • 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 colleagues,” 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 student-athletes, 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 studentathletes 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. 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. 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 on-campus tennis center.

ATHLETICS ADMINISTRATION 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 CookevillePutnam 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 introduced 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).

KIM NASH ADMINISTRATIVE ASSOCIATE / ATHLETICS DIRECTOR KIM NASH came to the Tech Athletics Department in 2004 from across campus in Photo Services, and currently is in a position as Administrative Associate to the Athletics Director.

ABOUT TECH “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.

Why we're the Golden Eagles

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 allnew 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.

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.
