BUILDING A

Construction nearing completion on new Athletic Performance Center New facility will house weight room, practice space and locker facilities Construction is nearing completion on a brand new stateof-the-art Athletic Performance Center for Tennessee Tech student-athletes. The 25,000 square-foot facility, expected to open in January, 2011, will benefit every Golden Eagle student-athlete. When completed, it will be the finest such facility in the Ohio Valley Conference, with 10,000 square-feet for the new weight room and 10,000 square-feet for indoor practice and conditioning. At an estimated cost of $2 million, the facility will also house dressing room facilities including a team room for the Golden Eagle softball program.

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

The new building is going up west of the softball complex close to Pine Ave. The location allows for access to the newly built outdoor strength and conditioning area that includes an obstacle course, speed training sand pit, as well as a natural grass practice surface. Athletics is currently seeking financial support to furnish the building with state-of-the-art strength equipment to enhance the outstanding quality of the facility. To help Tech’s student-athletes with support for the purchase of equipment, please contact Grant Swallows, Associate Athletic Director for Development, either by phone (931-372-3929) or email at GSwallows@tntech.du.

PREVIEW: POSITION ANALYSIS Depth developed during past few years could give Tech a chance at OVC title Head Coach Watson Brown has been patient in developing skill levels throughout Golden Eagle roster

Dontey Gay

The age-old practice of predicting college football success rambled through another talkative summer with lots of discussions about team strengths and weaknesses, schedules, promising signees and quality returnees. Tennessee Tech is right in the middle of the talk when it comes to picking the favorite teams in the Ohio Valley Conference. The Golden Eagles are picked fourth in the league, and all three teams ahead of Tech must visit Tucker Stadium. In the preseason Top 25 of the Football Championship Subdivision (FCS, formerly I-AA), the Golden Eagles received nine votes and are listed among “others receiving votes.” What does it all mean? On paper, the Golden Eagles appear to be a solid squad in 2010. Coach Watson Brown and his staff are trying to mold a team that featured lots and lots of freshmen the past two years into a championship contender. In a breakdown by position, Tech has the potential to challenge for a title and a spot in the Top 25. The outlook can be boiled down to one word: Depth. If Tech’s depth is as good as Brown believes it to be, then season tickets in Tucker Stadium could be the bargain of the year, especially with late-season visits from Eastern Illinois, Eastern Kentucky and Jacksonville State. “We need to play well on the road early in the year to have a chance to win the OVC championship,” Brown said. “If we do that, then we’ll be in the hunt when we host those games later in the year. It could make for a really exciting season for our fans.” Tech has plenty of depth on the defensive side of scrimmage, particularly in the line where Brown thinks his squad can be three-deep at every position. On the other side of the ball, Tech’s strength is in the skill positions where an abundance of talent lines up in the backfield and receiver. Up front, Tech boasts some of its most talented players in the offensive line, but Brown’s concern is whether there’s enough depth to keep the ball moving. Six of Tech’s linemen have not seen a collegiate snap, and there’s not much experience behind the starters in the interior spots. Specials teams should live up to its name – special – with kickers, punters and breakaway returners galore. “We’re as good as any team in the Ohio Valley Conference, but we’re no better than any team in the OVC,” Brown says evenly. “We need to play our best every week to have a chance to win, but if we do that we can win every game.” TENNESSEE TECH FOOTBALL MEDIA GUIDE F 2010


Scott Schweitzer


PREVIEW: POSITION ANALYSIS “I believe that our depth will give us the chance to win every week,” he says. “We might not have the best player in the league at any one position, but taken altogether I think that we’re as good as every team in the league at every position.” So, the following position-by-position breakdown begins in the offensive line.

OFFENSIVE LINE

Malcolm Jones has been a two-year starter at center, and has been effective in that role. With the emergence of Michael Baker in the middle, Jones was able to move over two spots to left tackle where he is expected to flourish. On the other side, sophomore Hunter Beedle gained valuable experience in a backup role last year and moves into a starting assignment at right tackle in his second campaign. Behind that pair, however, a lot of learning will take place among two true freshmen and one redshirt freshman. Jacob Hoot is the redshirt, a walk-on last year who has come a long way in his development in one year. The new faces are Nathan Bush and Wes Sherrill.

Senior Henry Sailes

The strength up front is at the guard spots, where sophomore Slade Adams and junior Scott Schweitzer are listed as the starters. Pass protecting or run blocking, both will be among the best in the conference. Matt Mercy and Ryan St. John have both seen some action in the past couple years and are primed to step forward after working hard in the weight room. Another option is junior Ben Davis, who made a recent move from the defensive line to guard in fall camp. He has the strength to excel once he learns his new position. Freshman Randall Reeves is also a guard. In the middle, the coaching staff saw such promise in sophomore Michael Baker that they moved Jones to tackle. Baker saw some action in 2009, and will start this season with support from junior Ryan Weeks and freshman James Normand. Also along the front line, Tech’s tight ends will play an important role in 2010. Junior Cory Powers saw a lot of action a year ago and can be effective as a blocker and a pass catcher. Also back at the position is a bigger, stronger Tyler York. Joining that pair are two highly regarded freshmen in Doug Page and DaJuan Brown. In short, Tech is long on options at tight end.

BACKFIELD Moving into the backfield, Tech has a good situation at quarterback despite the loss of record-setting four-year starter Lee Sweeney. Sophomore Tre Lamb was on the field quite a bit last year and came into fall camp as the projected starter. Senior Cass Barnes has been a starter and provides another fleet-footed option with experience. Both Lamb and Barnes are dangerous runners who can throw every pass in Tech’s playbook. Junior Clint Brewster is in the same mold, offering a strong passing option as well as the ability to run with the ball. Perhaps the quickest of Tech’s four signal-callers is freshman Darian Stone. Whether throwing the ball or handing if off, Tech’s quarterbacks will enjoy having tremendous skills at every position in the backfield and at receiver. Junior Tim Benford

The Golden Eagles appear to be three-deep at all three backs, giving the offense-minded Brown a huge array of options in his imaginative playbook.

TENNESSEE TECH FOOTBALL MEDIA GUIDE F 2010


PREVIEW: POSITION ANALYSIS The list of talent includes returnees Dontey Gay, Henry Sailes and Zack Ziegler, plus Tremaine Hudson and Demetrous Garrett. Gay was the team’s leading rusher a year ago and Sailes has shown the ability to be a game-breaker in a variety of ways. Ziegler and Garrett are both quick and elusive runners who will see lots of opportunities in Tech’s wide-open attack. Hudson has quietly provided outstanding support and delivered clutch plays time and again. Newcomers to the backfield include Josh Perez, Jocques Crawford, Zach Salada, Cory McDonald and Cody Forbes, all of whom have shown an ability to chew up yardage and defenders.

RECEIVERS Junior Tim Benford, a two-time all-OVC selection, headlines the receivers with an ability to dominate games. In just two seasons he ranks ninth in career receptions with 98 and he’s knocking on the door of the school’s Top 10 list for career receiving yards, coming into the season with 1,362. Far from a one-man band on the outside, Benford is joined by returnees Colin Allen and Alden Olverson plus several new faces. Players coming off redshirt seasons and ready to contribute include Carter Crutchfield and Ryan Tilgman, while newcomers who could impact the passing game include freshmen Cy Ables and Josh Wilson.

DEFENSIVE LINE Moving across the line of scrimmage, the defensive line could be Tech’s deepest area according to Brown, where his squad could be three-deep. There are six returning veterans listed atop the depth chart at the three positions, plus a handful of new names prepared to bolster the attack. At the Bear defensive end spot, Charlie Seivers is the starter and could be an allOVC performer. Jamere Hogue, who has been a bruising tight end the past two years, has moved to Bear and has learned his new role quickly. Also available are J.R. Richmond and freshman Midoho Okpokowuruk. In the middle, senior Justin Hilliard and Dedrick Miley give Tech two solid performers at the Anchor position. They have help from redshirt freshman Lamar Moore and freshman Jordan Johnson. It’s the same at the Rock defensive end, where returnees Travis Adkins and LaDarrius Verge headline the list. Redshirt Nick White and freshman Matthew Smith are also showing promise.

LINEBACKERS Tech’s linebacker positions include inside and outside spots. The outside spots, the Ram and Bandit, feature some of the teams most versatile athletes. At the Ram, Dwight Evans, Tommi McBride and Barry Lenon all saw action last year while redshirt Christian Padrnos is coming along. At Bandit, Justin Vann has continued on next page

Zack Ziegler


PREVIEW: POSITION ANALYSIS been a playmaker for two years and returns to his starting spot. Marcus Edwards could be the best pass rusher on the roster. Also lining up at Bandit will be Will Johnson, a transfer from Kentucky, and junior Gerel Harlan. The inside linebacker positions, called the Bull and Renegade, will be a key to Tech’s success. Brown and his staff have developed several outstanding players over the past couple years and that patience is paying off. At the Bull, senior Kelechi Ordu is one of the most physical players on the squad and is primed for a great season. Matt Moran and Jerry King are also listed at this spot, along with redshirt Sam Miller. At Renegade, Jake McIntosh has been among the team’s leaders the past two seasons and is another playmaker who just finds ways to make a difference. Joining him are redshirt freshmen Blake Adams, Cory McDonald and Kevin Casler.

LaDarrius Verge

DEFENSIVE SECONDARY Tech’s secondary has stability with another group of returnees ready to shut down opponent passing attacks, including team leaders Dustin Dillehay at rover and Caleb Mitchell at cornerback.

Caleb Mitchell

Mitchell has moved to boundary corner from his safety position and has boundless possibilities with his mobility and quickness. Corbin Miles and freshman James Huguely also work on the boundary side. On the field corner, Richmond Tooley is one of the team’s best in coverage and returns to his starting spot. Dominick Baker and Mauricio Wallace are also talented corners who give Tech plenty of depth. Dillehay is back at rover where he led the team in tackles and ranked among team leaders last season. He’s joined by Kedrick Towles, Chris Dickerson and freshman Cody Matthews. Marty Jones is the returning starter at free safety, while Corey Watson has made a move from wide receiver to add depth to the secondary. The safety spot will also see contributions from Taylor Hennigan, another wide receiver who made the move in the off-season, and freshman Heath Dyer.

SPECIAL TEAMS Tech’s kicking game is in capable hands, beginning with sophomore long snapper Jordan Adams and holder Nick Campbell, who is Tech’s leading candidate at punter. Jason Lennartz is also an experienced punter.

Dwight Evans

Like punter, the Golden Eagles have two placekickers who can get the job done. Returnee Tim Donegan handled the duties last year as a freshman, and he’s joined by Oregon State transfer Matt Baker. Kick and punt returns will be exciting once again in 2010, with the likes of Henry Sailes, Demetrous Garrett, Zack Ziegler, Tremaine Hudson, Dontey Gay and Mauricio Wallace all returning after showing flashes last year.

atson Brown is back home in Cookeville, and his first three seasons at Tennessee Tech have been a whirlwind of excitement marked by a resurgence in support for Golden Eagle football. The veteran coach has used an even-tempered approach to teach his young staff and players, and the first three years have bolstered Tech’s desire to reclaim supremacy in the Ohio Valley Conference. The Golden Eagles are primed and ready to go back on the attack. In 2009, the Golden Eagles claimed three key victories to capture the OVC’s Sgt. York Trophy for the first time. The 2010 season will be Brown’s 38th year of coaching collegiate football and his 26th year as a collegiate head coach. Brown, 59, 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.

TENNESSEE TECH FOOTBALL MEDIA GUIDE F 2010


COACHING STAFF “We’re excited to be coming back to Cookeville,” Brown said at the packed press conference. “This is a great opportunity to make a move and really improve the Golden Eagle football program to the point where we can win conference championships and make a run at a national championship.” Brown left his position as head coach at UAB after 12 seasons. Mark Wilson, TTU Director of Athletics, echoed the excitement voiced by Brown about the future of TTU football. “We are excited to attract a coach with the head coaching experience that Watson Brown has,” Wilson said. “We look forward to him leading our team to Ohio Valley Conference championships and regional and national prominence.” 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.

“Cookeville is home. It’s where my wife and I are from, and it’s neat to have that as part of this decision, too,” Brown said. “The decision to make a change is always difficult, especially when you’ve spent 12 years building a program from scratch,” Brown said, “Mark (Wilson) had a lot to do with it. I felt comfortable with him, and I really respect his attitude and what he wants to accomplish.” 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 14-10 victory over Alabama in 1969. Brown was named the Sports Illustrated National Back of the Week for his efforts. continued on next page

“Watson Brown is a man of high character, a focused recruiter, and an exceptional football coach,” Wilson said. “He is focused on both the academic and athletic success of our student-athletes, which is the perfect fit for Tennessee Tech. “We’re anticipating tremendous support for coach Brown and the Golden Eagles in the years to come,” Wilson said. That support was evident from Day One, and it carried over through the 2007 season with record season ticket sales. Tech’s first home game drew the largest opening day crowd in the 43-year history of Tucker Stadium. He 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. He has also found success on the recruiting trail, signing three of the most promising groups of newcomers in the program’s history. 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, building 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 I-A 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 their 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 quarterback and receiver 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 finished 7-4 and 11-3, and played for the Division II national championship in 1977.

TENNESSEE TECH FOOTBALL MEDIA GUIDE F 2010


COACHING STAFF 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 seasonopening 14-3 victory at defending national champion Penn State. 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. 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 Cooke­ ville. 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 working with the quarterback and runningbacks. 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. Three years ago he was inducted into the Tennessee Sports Hall of Fame. In 2010, the National Football Foundation recognized Watson by seleecting him as the recipient of the Roy Kramer Contribution to Football Award.

In 2010, he takes on the title of assistant head coach in addition to being special teams coordinator. He also coaches the safeties and outside linebackers. Holthouser, 60, was hired in January 2007, to coach Tech’s defensive secondary and serve as the coordinator of the special teams. Now a 33-year collegiate coaching veteran, Holthouser spent the previous two seasons as defensive coordinator and secondary coach at Gardner-Webb University before his arrival in Cookeville. His years of experience have not only aided Tech’s efforts on the defensive side of the line of scrimmage, they have helped in special teams preparation, as well. Tech has either led the league or been near the top in kickoff returns that past three seasons. The Golden Eagles led the OVC in punt returns in 2007, and have blocked 11 kicks in three years under Holthouser’s guidance. A native of Elkin, N.C., and a graduate of Wake Forest University, Holthouser was a member of the Deacons’ 1970 ACC championship team, their only league title until 2006. A defensive lineman during his playing career, he earned his degree in business in 1974. Holthouser coached at Gardner-Webb three different times. In 1997, he was the assistant head coach as well as defensive coordinator. During that year, he helped GardnerWebb post an 8-3 record and the nation’s best turnaround on the Division II level. Prior to becoming a collegiate assistant coach, Holthouser spent seven years in Charlotte, N.C., as a high school coach. He began his college coaching career at The Citadel in 1983, and has served as defensive coordinator with VMI, Western Carolina, Gardner-Webb, Elon and UT Chattanooga.

Steven BROWN

v Passing Game Coordinator v Quarterbacks and Runningbacks Steven Brown, 25, made the move from the playing field to the coaching staff in 2007, spending one season as a graduate assistant on Watson Brown’s staff. In 2008 he moved into an assistant coaching role and enters his third season working primarily with Golden Eagle quarterbacks. He worked last year to help veteran Lee Sweeney accomplish his most successful season, and also helped mold several young signalcallers including freshman Tre Lamb, junior Cass Barnes and transfer student Clint Brewster. Now that work will pay dividends as the three will call on that experience as they vie for the starting assignment in 2010. An experienced player, Steven had one season of eligibility remaining in 2008 after playing for the Golden Eagles for one year, but he passed on the chance to play his final season 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 All-State team in 2003 as a senior quarterback, helping lead Vestavia Hills to a 12-2 record and an appearance in the state semifinals.

In his first year on the staff, Cox helped Shipp shatter numerous school records on his way to earning first-team all-OVC laurels as well as All-America recognition. Cox was also influential in helping his receivers adapt to the constant changes Tech underwent at quarterback due to injuries in 2007.

He spent two seasons working with receivers on Chuck Amato’s Wolfpack staff. His coaching experience began with a couple of seasons on the high school level, followed by two years at N.C. State. An effective communicator, Cox has developed an extremely strong knowledge of the game. A native of Bessemer, Ala., Cox played his collegiate career under Brown at UAB, including 11 games as a starter for the Blazers. A member of the Conference USA Commissioner’s Honor Roll, the UAB Dean’s List and the UAB Athletic Director’s Honor Roll, Cox was 7-4 as a starter. He was named as a National Strength and Conditioning Association All-American. In December 2002, Cox received his bachelor’s degree in history from UAB and began his coaching career at Campbell High School in Smyrna, Ga. He worked with the quarterbacks and also served as head coach of the freshman team during his first year at Campbell, and was the running backs coach for the varsity squad in his second campaign. In June 2005, he moved to North Carolina State to pursue a master’s degree in Liberal Studies and take a graduate assistant position with the Wolfpack. During his time at N.C. State, he was part of the Wolfpack coaching staff that led the team to the 2005 Meineke Car Care Bowl. He received his master’s degree in June 2007. Cox is married to the former Jackie Tharp.

2009 GAME SUMMARIES

Game #1

Golden Eagles grind out 51-10 victory over Pikeville to open season September 10, 2009

Tucker Stadium / Cookeville Tenn. / Attendance: 7,911 COOKEVILLE, Tenn. -- Tennessee Tech scored on all five first half possessions to build a 34-0 Dontey Gay lead at the intermission and coasted to a 51-10 season-opening, non-conference victory over Pikeville College in Tucker Stadium. Dontey Gay rushed for a career-best 88 yards on nine carries and scored a pair of touchdowns to pace a ground attack that piled up 256 yards, the third-most rushing yards in a game in head coach Watson Brown’s tenure with the Golden Eagles. Senior Cedric Wilkerson also scored a pair of touchdowns, while sophomore Jimmy Blair and senior quarterback Lee Sweeney each reached paydirt on the ground as the Golden Eagles rushed for six scores. Tech also got a 53-yard touchdown pass from Sweeney to sophomore Alden Olverson. In addition to Gay’s 88 yards, sophomore Tremaine Hudson gained 86 yards in 11 carries. Sweeney finished the game 14-for-18 for 187 yards and one touchdown, playing three quarters before yielding the signal-calling duties to redshirt freshman Tre Lamb. Tech’s defense set the tone early, as senior co-captain Brendon Fisher intercepted a pass on Pikeville’s second play from scrimmage, leading to a two-play, 32-yard scoring drive as Gay rushed for 24 yards on the first play and eight yards for a touchdown on the second. Six minutes later, junior Dustin Dillehay intercepted a Bear pass at the Tech 11 after Pikeville had marched 42 yards in 12 plays. The Golden Eagles capitalized on that turnover to march 89 yards and make it 14-0 on a one-yard plunge from Wilkerson. The difference went to 21-0 on a one-yard push by Sweeney early in the second quarter after Dillehay returned a short punt 27 yards to the Pikeville 20.

Tech’s lead was 34-0 at halftime after Wilkerson’s second TD from the one and a missed PAT. Donegan kicked his first career field goal, a 28-yard try, late in the third quarter to make it 37-0. Tech went on top 44-0 early in the fourth quarter as Gay scored from the five, a drive engineered by Lamb that covered 60 yards in six plays, all on the ground. Pikeville put its first TD of the season on the board with 3:58 remaining when Jeremy Mobley broke loose for a 52-yard touchdown run. Pikeville moved 69 yards on the ensuing kickoff, a 39-yard carry and a pair of 15-yard penalties on the Golden Eagles. From the 21, the Bears moved the ball to the nine, setting the stage for a 26-yard field goal from from Kyle Chilton with six seconds to play.

2009 GAME SUMMARIES

Game #2

Defensive OVC battle goes to host Colonels, 17-7 September 19, 2009

Roy Kidd Stadium / Richmond, Ky. / Attendance: 10,600 RICHMOND, Ky. – From the opening kickoff, it Richmond was evident that the defenses would decide the Ohio Valley Conference opener between TennesTooley see Tech and two-time defending league champ Eastern Kentucky. Despite a heroic effort by the Golden Eagle defense, the Colonels got the game-breaking play late in the third quarter, a 54-yard interception return for a touchdown that turned the tide and led to a 17-7 EKU victory before 10,600 in Roy Kidd Stadium. Andre Evans stepped in front of a pass that Lee Sweeney intended for Tim Benford on the sidelines, and the Colonel senior raced to the end zone to erase what had been a 7-3 Tech lead for nearly 45 minutes. Tech’s defense forced three turnovers and blocked a field goal attempt, and the Golden Eagles put a scare into the Colonels, who have gone 15-1 in the conference over the past two seasons. Make that 16-1 for the team picked to repeat in 2009. Tech took an early 7-0 lead, and was on top 7-3 at halftime. The Golden Eagles held that advantage until the turnover put the lead onto the Colonel side of the scoreboard. EKU added a cushion with a touchdown in the fourth quarter. After Tech’s defense snuffed the Colonels on the game’s opening series, the offense struck quickly. Sweeney laid one deep for Benford on Tech’s first offensive series, and the sophomore receiver made a leaping catch at the EKU one-yard line. That set up a six-yard TD run by Hudson with 11:43 to play in the first quarter. Tim Donegan’s kick made it 7-0, and that’s where the score stood until just before halftime. Tech’s defense forced two turnovers to stop the Colonels in the first half. Richmond Tooley intercepted a pass in the end zone in the first quarter, and on the next series Justin Vann forced a fumble and Travis Adkins recovered at the EKU 42. EKU kicker Logan O’Connor missed a 42-yard field goal late in the first quarter and Donegan was wide right on a 44-yard field goal attempt early in the second quarter. The Colonels blocked a Golden Eagle punt at the Tech 27 with three minutes to go in the half, leading to a 30-yard field goal by O’Connor to

Minutes later, Howard Griffin forced a fumble and Brandon Harris recovered to put Tech in EKU territory. Again, the Colonel defense held and Donegan’s 33-yard field goal attempt was wide left. Late in the quarter, with Tech near midfield, Evans made the play that ignited the partisan crowd. After going up 10-7, the Colonels added a final score with a six-play, 61-yard scoring drive.

Golden Eagles rally in fourth quarter but fall at Eastern Illinois October 17, 2009

O’Brien Field / Charleston, Ill. / Attendance: 8,708 CHARLESTON, Ill. - Tennessee Tech rallied from a 20-point second-half deficit, but couldn’t Alden overcome five turnovers, as the Golden Eagles Olverson fell to No. 25 Eastern Illinois 23-15 in Charleston, Ill. “We played one of the best teams in the league on the road, and we were right there with a chance to win at the end of the game,” Tennessee Tech head coach Watson Brown said. “I’m proud of us for hanging in there, I thought we showed a lot of resilience, but we have got to play a lot better than this at home or on the road.” Colin Allen led Tech with six receptions for 80 yards and a touchdown. Dontey Gay got 46 of his 64 rushing yards on one carry, but Tech’s running game never got off the ground as the Golden Eagles rushed for just 78 yards. Lee Sweeney completed 19-of-46 passes for 198 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions in the game. Gay caught four passes for 34 yards, and Henry Sailes, who played for the first time since Sept. 19 after suffering an ankle injury, had three catches for 23 yards.

Kelechi Ordu led Tech with 12 tackles, including 1.5 tackles-forloss. Caleb Mitchell had an interception for the Golden Eagles. Neither team took particularly good care of the football in the game.

They would convert that opportunity into a field goal, and take an early 3-0 lead. EIU would find the endzone late in

the first quarter when Christensen hooked up with Chris Wright for a touchdown. The Panthers were able to move the ball throughout much of the first half, but had to settle for three more field goal attempts, two of which were blocked and one that missed short. Travis Adkins blocked one attempt, and Tech got credit as a team for the second block. On the first drive of the second half the Panthers would add to their lead, going on a 12-play 56-yard touchdown drive that ate up over six minutes of clock and gave them a 17-0 lead. EIU would add a field goal to go up 20-0 before Tech began its comeback. The Golden Eagles got their break after Jason Lenartz’s second 69-yard punt of the game pinned the Panthers at their own two-yard line. On the next play EIU running back Mon Williams was tripped up in his own endzone for a safety, making the score 20-2. Lenartz punted five times and averaged 50.2 yards-per-punt. The Golden Eagles would take advantage on their next possession, scoring a touchdown when Sweeney found Alden Olverson for a 29-yard touchdown pass. A missed PAT made the score 20-8. Tech’s defense held, and the Golden Eagles got the ball back, and found the endzone again. This time Sweeney connected with Allen for an 11-yard touchdown pass which capped a six-play, 70-yard drive that took only a minute and 43 seconds off the clock. That score put Tech behind 20-15 with 3:54 to play. After EIU added a field goal Maurico Wallace took the ensuing kickoff 81 yards to EIU’s 18 yard-line with Tech needing a touchdown and a two-point conversion to tie. But after completing a four-yard pass to Hudson, Tech ran out of downs, allowing the Panthers to run off the final 12 seconds off the clock.

Head coach Watson Brown was happy to notch the game in the win-column, despite his team’s less-than-perfect effort. After Curtis Huge staked the Redhawks (1-6/0-5 OVC) to a 6-0 lead with a pair of short first quarter field goals, Tech (4-3/32 OVC) scored 21 unanswered points during a seven-minute span to open the second quarter.

Georgia defense shuts down Tech, Bulldogs claim 38-0 victory November 7, 2009

Sanford Stadium / Athens, Ga. / Attendance: 92,746 ATHENS, Ga. -- It won’t take long for the Tennessee Tech football team Marty Jones to get its minds back on playing for an Ohio Valley Conference championship. The Golden Eagles headed home from Georgia’s Sanford Stadium on the short end of a 38-0 loss to the Bulldogs, and coach Watson Brown’s team will quickly turn its attention toward the final two contests of the regular season and the chance to be a major factor in the OVC race. Tech’s offense never got moving Saturday against the bigger, stronger Bulldogs. Sacked six times for a total of 51 yards, the Golden Eagles finished the game with negative yards on the ground. Tech lost 13 yards in the rushing game overall, and had 55 yards in total offense after Lee Sweeney and Tre Lamb combined to go 11-for-16 for 68 passing yards. Sweeney compared Georgia’s defensive players to Tech’s quickest. It was the first time Tech has been shut out in Brown’s three seasons as head coach, and the first blanking since falling 44-0 at Middle Tennessee in 2006. Georgia rushed for 304 yards and finished with 469 yards of total offense. The FBS Bulldogs improved to 5-4 overall and are within one win of becoming bowl eligible. Washaun Ealey led a balanced Bulldogs ground attack, rushing for 89 yards and two touchdowns on just seven carries. He got

the scoring started with a seven yard TD midway in the first quarter after the Bulldogs converted a couple of third down plays and finished off a nine-play, 69-yard touchdown drive. Ealey added a 44-yard touchdown run on the first play of the second quarter that pushed Georgia’s lead to 28-0 as the Bulldogs reached the end zone on their first four possessions. Orson Charles grabbed a 23-yard TD pass from Joe Cox with five minutes left in the first half and Branden Smith broke away for a 52-yard touchdown run two minutes later to make it 21-0. After Ealey’s second TD run, the Golden Eagle defense stopped Georgia midway in the second quarter, forcing a 24-yard field goal from Blair Walsh for a 31-0 halftime lead. Georgia scored on its first possession of the second half, putting together a seven-play, 67-yard drive before Cox hit Michael Moore for a six-yard TD to make it 38-0. Cox finished the game 10-for-13 for 140 yards and two touchdowns, suffering one interception when Golden Eagle freshman Marty Jones picked off his second ball of the year in the end zone with 1:21 remaining the second quarter. Jones led Tech’s defense with nine total tackles, including six solo stops. Sophomores Jake McIntosh and Howard Griffin had seven tackles each, while Kelechi Ordu made six tackles. Tremaine Hudson topped Tech’s rushing game with 20 yards on 10 carries.

Golden Eagles fall short in upset bid at Jacksonville State November 14, 2009

Paul Snow Memorial Stadium / Jacksonville, Ala. / Attendance: 11,828 JACKSONVILLE, Ala. – Tennessee Slade Tech paid No. 15 Jacksonville State a Adams visit with an upset on its minds but JSU quarterback Ryan Perrilloux and the Gamecock offense was too much for the Golden Eagles as Tech fell 55-28 at Paul Snow Stadium. Perrilloux threw for 223 yards and three touchdowns, and was also JSU’s leading rusher with 103 yards and two touchdowns on the ground to lead the Gamecock attack. Henry Sailes had 63 yards rushing on seven carries for Tech and one touchdown, and also had 122 yards on five kickoff returns for a total of 185 allpurpose yards on the day. The Tech receiving corps was led by Demetrous Garrett and Zach Ziegler, who each had three catches. Alden Olverson, Corey Watson, Tim Benford and Dontey Gay had one catch each. Tennessee Tech quarterback Lee Sweeney completed 8-of-11 passes for 118 yards before leaving the game in the third quarter. Dustin Dillehay led the Tech defense with eight tackles while Josh Paz and Marty Jones each had six. Caleb Mitchell forced a fumble, which was recovered by Dillehay for the game’s only turnover. The Gamecocks got on the board first with a 48-yard Perrilloux touchdown run just a minute and a half into the game. The run capped a three-play 54-yard march.

Tech would answer late in the first quarter, piecing together a nine-play 88-ayrd scoring drive. A key 24-yard completion from Sweeney to Olverson on third-and-seven that got Tech to the JSU three-yard line set up a three-yard scamper by Sailes, his first touchdown of the season. That score tied the game at seven. The Gamecocks would score on a 15yard run by Drec Lindley to go up 14-7, and add another touchdown when Greg Smith caught a Perrilloux pass and took it 24 yards to the endzone, going up 21-7. But Tech was able to march down the field again, driving 64 yards on eight plays, and the Golden Eagles found the endzone on a one-yard sneak by Sweeney, pulling Tech within seven at 21-14. JSU got the ball back with just over five minutes to play in the half, and timed its 66-yard scoring drive almost perfectly, scoring on a 15-yard touchdown pass from Perrilloux to Greg Smith with just 17 seconds left on the clock to take a 28-14 lead into halftime. Three consecutive JSU touchdowns to open the second half put the Gamecocks up 48-14 heading into the fourth quarter. Redshirt-freshman quarterback Tre Lamb played much of the second half for Tech, and led the Golden Eagles on two second-half scoring drives, finishing the game completing 2-of6 passes for 26 yards, and also running the ball seven times for 16 yards.

Tucker Stadium / Cookeville, Tenn. / Attendance: 3,318 COOKEVILLE, Tenn. – Sophomore Kelvin Quarles Dontey Gay rushed for 102 yards helping on Senior Day Tennessee Tech pile up 288 yards and four touchdowns on the ground on the way to a 45-14 Ohio Valley Conference victory over Murray State. With the victory in their season finale, the Golden Eagles wrapped up a winning record and finished with an unbeaten mark of 5-0 at home. Tech tied for second place in the OVC, one game behind Eastern Illinois. The Tech defense also came up with some big plays, forcing three turnovers by the Racers.

The Golden Eagles drove 65 yards in 10 plays from the opening kickoff to grab a 7-0 lead on a five-yard run by Sailes. Murray State answered two possessions later with a nine-play, 80-yard scoring drive as Charlie Jordan rushed the final nine for the touchdown to tie the score. Tech moved 49 yards in seven plays to regain the lead on Sweeney’s touchdown pass to Olverson to make it 14-7 with 2:33 to play in the first quarter. After the Golden Eagle defense halted Murray State on a fourth-and-two at the TTU 36-yard line early in the second, Sweeney and Barnes combined for a 51-yard, 11 play scoring drive. Barnes con-

verted from the one for the score with four minutes to play in the half. Barnes scored his second TD, a threeyard jaunt early in the third quarter to make it 28-7 to cap a 55-yard drive, and the lead grew to 35-7 four minutes later on a nineyard TD pass from Sweeney to Waters, who was lining up at fullback for the first time this season after moving to linebacker for his final campaign.

THE OHIO VALLEY CONFERENCE

Entering its 63rd year, the Ohio Valley Conference continues to build on the success that has made it the nation’s eighth-oldest NCAA Division I conference. For only the second time in a decade, the Conference expanded by adding Southern Illinois University Edwardsville as the league’s 11th member in 2008. The move expanded the OVC’s geographical footprint to the St. Louis market and marked the first change in membership since expanding to the state of Alabama (Jacksonville State, Samford) in 2003. 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 62 years, 14 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 2008, the NCAA Board of Directors approved an expansion to the FCS Playoffs, incrasing the playoff field to 20 teams beginnings in the 2010 season. 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 volleyball added

over the next four years. Those sports were initially governed by the Association of Intercollegiate Athletics for Women (AIAW), but the overall strength of women’s programs in the league was demonstrated by the automatic bids the OVC instantly received when the NCAA became the governing body in 1982. The playing field is not the only place where OVC athletes are working hard. The league also recognizes excellence in the classroom. Six Scholar-Athlete Awards are presented yearly to male and female athletes, while others are commended for their academic success by being Medal of Honor recipients or earning a spot on the Commissioner’s Honor Roll. Additionally, the league annually presents one institutional Academic Achievement Award, as well as separate team awards in each Conference-sponsored sport. Since the College Sports Information Directors of American (CoSIDA) Academic All-America program began, the Ohio Valley Conference has had 192 student-athletes honored with the award, including 25 over the last two years (2008-09 to the present). 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.

Robert Hill Johnson Award Winners

Senior quarterback Lee Sweeney was named the recipient of the 2009 Robert Hill Johnson Award. 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

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 2010-2012 TSSAA Blue Cross/Blue Shield Tennessee State Championship Games. In 2007, attendance at Tech football games nearly doubled over the previous year’s, season ticket sales set records, topping the 2,000 mark, and the Golden Eagles had the largest opening game crowd in school history. 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 grid 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 those contests, including a record 12,831 for the game against Cumberland in the 2007 opener.

Golden Eagle teams have had three other unbeaten home seasons, going 11-0 over two consecutive seasons, with a 5-0 mark in 1971 and 6-0 in 1972. Tech was also 5-0 in 2001. The facility was officially dedicated as Tucker Stadium at Homecoming ceremonies on Oct. 18, 1980, in honor of former coach Wilburn Tucker, who served on the Golden Eagle staff for 21 years. The playing field itself retained its designation as Overall Field, named for coach P.V. Overall, who was head coach at Tech for 26 years. Both men are in the Tech Sports Hall of Fame and the OVC Hall of Fame. When the stadium was built in 1966, it featured a press box on the West side for the working press. The second box -- for use by TTU's president and guests -- plus 4,000 additional seats, were added to the East side of the stadium in 1971. The first synthetic turf was laid in 1970 and was replaced in 1980. That turf lasted 13 years until Stadia Turf was installed in 1994, the surface that was replaced in 2007.

TENNESSEE TECH FOOTBALL MEDIA GUIDE F 2010


THIS IS TENNESSEE TECH u One of the “Top Southern Public Universities” by U.S. News & World Report u One of the “Best Southeastern Universities” and “America’s Best College Values” by The Princeton Review u Among “America’s 100 Best College Buys” by Institutional Research and Evaluations, Inc. 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’s vision is guided by the “T.E.C.H.” framework — technological leadership, enrollment growth, a caring campus, and high quality. The university is divided into seven academic divisions offering 44 programs of study leading to the bachelor’s degree and 20 programs of study at the graduate level. More than 75 percent of the 370 full-time faculty members hold doctoral degrees. Considered one of the most picturesque campuses in the South -and one of the safest -- the buildings carry an attractive Georgian style of architecture that lends the Tech campus an Ivy-league character. Tech was established in 1915 as Tennessee Polytechnic Institute, located on the site of its forerunner, Dixie College. TPI gained university

status in 1965, reflecting the institution’s role as a multipurpose, state-supported university. Tech’s current enrollment continues to include students from almost all 95 Tennessee counties, along with students from more than 40 other states and about 40 foreign countries.

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.

ROBERT (BOB) BELL University President - Florida 1969 Dr. Robert (Bob) Bell, now in his 11th year as President of Tennessee Tech, is an avid supporter of TTU and Ohio Valley Conference sports. He currently chairs the OVC President’s Board of Directors. Bell became TTU’s President in 2000 after serving as dean, associate dean, assistant dean, and a chairperson in the university’s College of Business. After taking the post, he oversaw the reorganization of the athletics department, bringing in a full-time athletics director for the first time in almost 20 years.

MARK WILSON Director of Athletics - Maine 1991 Mark Wilson’s first six years as Director of Athletics at Tennessee Tech have been highlighted by vision, energy, and enthusiasm. Those factors have facilitated growth and excellence in all areas and have placed the focus on generating a better student-athlete experience. Wilson is currently serving an appointment on the NCAA Leadership Council through April, 2011. It gives the Ohio Valley Conference, TTU and Wilson a voice in a variety of strategic decisions that can affect intercollegiate athletics. Wilson, 41, has led Athletics to several milestone accomplishments during his first six 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 studentathletes 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 three years Tech has completed several construction projects to athletic facilities, including resurfacing the outdoor tennis courts, 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. Most recently, Athletics opened a spacious, new basketball office complex in

138

Eblen Center and construction is underway on an new Athletic Performance Center on the western edge of campus. Additional building plans call for a new student-athlete center. Another step achieved under Wilson’s direction has been increased fund raising and development efforts with the goal of providing the necessary 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. Wilson was named Director of Athletics on July 1, 2004. He came to Tennessee Tech from Ohio University. Since his first day at Tech, Wilson has made rapid and steady progress. He began by restructuring the department and implemented plans for a better student-athlete experience. In addition, athletics launched a dynamic new website, gained NCAA certification and was found in complete compliance, created a far-reaching “WIN” program for academic success, opened an entertaining and popular Tailgate Park, and started plans for two capital projects. Before going to Ohio, Mark served as the Director of Athletic Marketing for the University of Massachusetts. He also 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 and his wife, Michelle, have two daughters, Katey (15) and Meaghan (10).

ACADEMIC SUPPORT

Winning in the Classroom Tennessee Tech’s commitment to its student-athletes is evident. The support personnel and resources available provide Golden Eagle student-athletes with the tools needed for success. 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. Tech’s student-athletes continue to excel in the classroom. Each semester, the Athletic Director’s Honor Roll pays tribute to more than 150 students in athletics, including athletes, trainers, managers and cheerleaders, and the overall GPA of the department has climbed steeply in the past seven semesters. 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 stu- Marilyn Borch-Jensen dents. Academic Student-athletes devote many hours to practice, conditioning and training in an effort to be the best they Advisement can be. These hours are not required by non-athletes in the student body, and these extra demands can compete Secretary 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.

In addition to his administrative role within Athletics, 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 still actively involved in that organization. He also has served on the President’s Commission on the Status of Women for seven years.

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.

By taking advantage of expert instruction, Golden Eagle student-athletes are afforded every opportunity to maximize their athletic potential Development of Core Strength Imagine the body is a 3-link chain with the head and arms being one link, the torso.trunk being the second link and the legs being the third link. If the core link (trunk/torso) is weak or inflexible, there is little chance of maximizing potential because all body movement stems from the core.

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 workous should be highly organized b) The workouts should be short in duration c) The workouts should be extremely intense

Train using ground-based, mulit-joint lifting versus machine lifting The following are recommendations for athletes Most athletes participate in stand up power sports using concerning days and times of strength trainig many muscle groups at once. The emphasis of training (including warmups): should be on total body athleticsm and flexibility rather than * In-season: 3 days / week; 30-40 minutes/workout having body weight supported by a machine and forcing * Post-season: 3-4 days / week; 45-60 minutes/workout isolation of just one muscle group. By incorporating ground* Pre-season: 4 days / week; 50-60 minutes/workout 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.

Join Coach Watson Brown each Monday at the Football Insiders’ Lunch Fans of Tennessee Tech football who would like to look “inside” the Golden Eagles each week with head coach Watson Brown are invited as he hosts a weekly Football Insiders’ Lunch each Monday during the 2010 season. The Insiders’ Lunch made its debut last season with Brown talking about his team and showing video footage with a detailed explanation of several key plays. It proved to be an extremely popular feature as the veteran coach pointed out aspects of plays that many fans don’t see while watching the games. “I really enjoyed showing the video and breaking down the plays, and I think the fans who came to the lunches saw the game from a new perspective,” Brown said. “They asked questions and it was a lot of fun.”

Now in his fourth season as Golden Eagle head coach, Brown will talk each week about the previous contest and take a look forward to the next opponent. The lunches will feature a relaxed, informal setting each Monday in the Eagles’ Nest in Eblen Center. “These lunches are meant to be a gathering place for friends of Tech football in a comfortable, casual atmosphere, and we’ll just spend the hour talking about Golden Eagle football,” Brown said. “I’ll try to answer any questions fans have about the team, the games, and Tech football, and try to keep everyone up-to-date on the program.” The first lunch of the 2010 season is scheduled for Monday, Sept. 13, following Tech’s game at TCU and prior to the home opener against

Lane College. It will be held every Monday through Nov. 22, from 12 to 1 p.m., a total of 11 weekly lunches. Fans can reserve an Insiders’ Lunch ticket to the entire year for $110 per person, a cost of just $10 per week for the 11 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.
