Sergeant. York Trophy Presented by Delta Dental of Tennessee

In July 2007, the Nashville Sports Council and the Ohio Valley Conference announced the creation of the Sergeant York Trophy which goes to the winner of the quadrangular season football series between the four Ohio Valley Conference football-playing schools located in the state of Tennessee – Austin Peay State University, Tennessee State University, Tennessee Technological University and the University of Tennessee at Martin. In 2014 Delta Dental of Tennessee became the presenting sponsor of the Trophy. The award is only the second traveling trophy that involves more than two teams in college sports; the other is the Commander in Chief’s Trophy which has been contested between Air Force, Army and Navy annually since 1972. The award is named in honor of Alvin C. York, the most noted Soldier of World War I. As a corporal in the 2nd battalion, 328th Infantry, in the Battle of the Meuse River-Argonne (Oct. 8, 1918), York and seven other soldiers captured 132 prisoners, was promoted to sergeant and received the Distinguished Service Cross, the French Croix de Guerre, the French Legion of Honor, the Croce di Guerra of Italy and the War Medal of Montenegro. Upon his return to the United States in 1919, he was bestowed the Congressional Medal of Honor. Following the war York returned his home in Pall Mall, Tenn. (located in north central Tennessee, 55 miles northeast of Cookeville) where he dedicated his life to improving education and facilitating educational opportunities for children in the state of Tennessee. In 1927 he established the Alvin C. York Institute after spending several years raising money for the school which opened as a private institution. That school was established, in part, to provide educational opportunities denied to the boys and girls of Fentress Country. In 1937, the Institute became a state special school after an appeal to the Tennessee State Legislature. The school, located in Jamestown, Tenn., is still in operation today. York died on Sept. 2, 1964 and the foundation which he helped establish in 1920 – The Sergeant York Patriotic Foundation – was dormant for many years. The Foundation was re-established by Lipscomb Davis, Jr. in 1992 and is currently run by Sgt. York’s grandson Gerald (U.S. Army Colonel, Retired). York’s papers are archived by Michael E. Birdwell, Ph.D., who is an associate professor of history at Tennessee Technological University, one of the four institutions that will compete for the yearly honor. After the completion of the football season, the Sergeant York Trophy will be awarded to the institution with the best head-to-head record in the matchups with their fellow Tennessee schools. In the event of a tie, the award will be shared; however, the previous winner will retain the trophy if they are part of the tie. If the tie is between two other institutions, the trophy will go to the institution that has gone the most seasons without winning the trophy. The award is presented to the winning institution annually at the Celebration of Champions, which is hosted each spring by the Nashville Sports Council. The event was created in 1999 and salutes amateur and professional sports in Tennessee.

SKYHAWKS IN THE NFL

The Skyhawks continued its recent history of giving players NFL opportunities with four 2014 seniors earning a piece of the spotlight. The quartet of LB Tony Bell (Tennessee Titans), OT Charles Sweeton (Kansas City Chiefs), RB Abou Toure (Indianapolis Colts) and TE Corey Jordan (Jacksonville Jaguars) all earned the right to make a name for themselves in NFL rookie camps this spring. As a whole, the Skyhawk football program has now produced 10 players who have received NFL opportunities since 2013. Former Skyhawks Montori Hughes (Indianapolis Colts), Jeremy Butler (Baltimore Ravens) and Abou Toure (Indianapolis Colts) are currently on active NFL rosters.

TRANSFERS ADD CHAMPIONSHIP PEDIGREE

Looking for a splash from the FBS level, the Skyhawks have added a pair of players who not only hail from the country’s elite programs, but won national titles during their tenure. Quarterback Troy Cook joins the Skyhawks from Florida State where he was a member of the undefeated 2014 Florida State squad while tight end Malcolm Faciane won a pair of championships (2011, 2012) while at Alabama. Joining in the national title conversation is JUCO transfer running back Preston Baker who helped lead East Mississippi Community College to back-to-back NJCAA national championships and an unblemished 24-0 record in his two seasons.

SKYHAWKS GARNER SPOTLIGHT

UT Martin currently has 10 of the team’s 11 games available to a national audience. The Skyhawks will open the season on the SEC Network against Ole Miss before seeing seven contests on the OVC Digital Network, a pair on ESPN3 and one game on the American Sports Network (ASN). No announcement on the team’s contest against Arkansas has been made available.

SGT. YORK RETURNS TO UT MARTIN

The Skyhawks took home their third Sgt. York Trophy since 2010 after completing a season sweep of in-state OVC foes Austin Peay, Tennessee State and Tennessee Tech.

Simpson oversaw three program greats in Bell, Toure and Sweeton in 2014. Bell captured his second straight All-American honor while finishing 16th in the final voting for The Sports Network Buck Buchanan Award, annually presented to the best defensive player in the FCS ranks. He rounded out his career with a school-record 22.5 career sacks while ranking in the top-10 nationally in fumble recoveries (3, sixth) and tackles for loss (21, 10th). Meanwhile, Toure became just the sixth player in program history to rush for over 1,000 yards in a season as his 1,138 rushing yards ranked as the third-best single-season performance in school history. Toure's 234 rushing yards at Murray State on Nov. 1 were the most in the OVC in 2014 and the third-best rushing effort in program history. Sweeton was tabbed as a Preseason All-American selection and started every game in 2014, extending his consecutive starts streak to 46 (every game of his collegiate career). He conceded only one sack in his final two seasons at left tackle, earning All-OVC accolades in both 2013 and 2014.

The Skyhawks spent three weeks in the Sports Network Football Championship Subdivision polls in 2013, with their only losses coming to Football Bowl Subdivision opponents Boise State and Memphis and FCS playoff participants Eastern Illinois, Tennessee State and Jacksonville State. UT Martin defeated ranked FCS opponents Chattanooga (31-21) and Central Arkansas (24-23) in the first three weeks of the season and was ranked No. 22 in the nation by the Sports Network on Sept. 30.

Bell, UT Martin’s all-time sacks (22.5) leader, finished 16th in the final voting for The Sports Network Buck Buchanan Award, annually presented to the best defensive player in the FCS ranks. He completed his highlydecorated career with a school-record 22.5 career sacks and also earned a tryout with the NFL’s Tennessee Titans in May 2015. Meanwhile, Dance captured All-Newcomer honors after tallying 56 tackles in his first season as a Skyhawk. UT Martin’s special teams also thrived under Hankins in 2014, as the Skyhawks led the OVC in PAT kicking (.978, 44-of-45) while ranking second in field goals (80 percent, 12-for-15) and punting (36.9 yard net average). UT Martin also ranked in the top-10 nationally in kickoff return defense (16.22 yard net average, ninth) and punt return defense (4.21 yard net average, 10th). In 2013, Hankins coached two of the best linebackers in the nation in Ben Johnson and Bell. Johnson led the Ohio Valley Conference for the second straight season in tackles (102) while Bell sat atop of the league rankings in sacks (10.5) and tackles for loss (15). Both Skyhawks earned All-American honors for their remarkable seasons. Hankins also coached a special teams unit that led the OVC in PAT kicking (33-for-33, 1.000) and ranked second in punting (37.4 net yards per punt). Hankins coached a stable of running backs in 2012, including Tevin Barksdale (116 carries, 539 yards), Jason McNair (112 carries, 460 yards) and DJ McNeil (103 carries, 402 yards).

MEET THE SKYHAWKS

Jeff Byrd is in his fourth season as defensive coordinator at UT Martin. Last season, Byrd oversaw a defense that often stymied the competition. From the Tennessee Tech game on Oct, 9 through the Austin Peay game on Oct. 25, the Skyhawks held three straight opponents under 17 points for the first time since 2006. Byrd also coached a defense that produced four touchdowns in the final six weeks of the season, including a pair of scores at Murray State on Nov. 1. In 2014, Byrd coached Tony Bell, who emerged as one of the top linebackers in the nation. Bell earned All-American accolades for the second consecutive season and finished 16th in the final voting for The Sports Network Buck Buchanan Award, annually presented to the best defensive player in the FCS ranks. He completed his highly-decorated career with a school-record 22.5 career sacks while ranking in the top10 nationally in fumble recoveries (3, sixth) and tackles for loss (21, 10th) in 2014. Bell also earned a tryout with the NFL’s Tennessee Titans in May 2015. In addition to Bell, Byrd coached OVC All-Newcomer linebacker Nick Dance in 2014. Byrd’s defenses were one of the most feared in the OVC in 2013, ranking second in the league in total defense (368.2 yards per game). The vaunting Skyhawk defense conceded just seven points or less in the first half of seven games, including four shutouts going into halftime. Byrd also oversaw the development of All-Americans Ben Johnson and Bell. Johnson led the OVC in tackles (102) for the second straight year while Bell led the league in sacks (10.5) and tackles for loss (15). That duo earned first team All-OVC honors while DJ Roberts (first team) and J’Vontez Blackmon (second team) also garnered all-conference accolades. In 2012, Byrd coached a defensive unit that racked up 908 tackles, including 72 tackles for loss and 22 sacks. The Skyhawk defense also accounted for 13 interceptions, 42 pass breakups, 46 quarterback hurries, 15 forced fumbles, 13 fumble recoveries and two blocked kicks. Individually, Byrd mentored All-OVC first teamers Montori Hughes and Johnson. Hughes became the 12th UT Martin player and first since 1996 to be selected in the NFL Draft (fifth round, 139th overall to the Indianapolis Colts), while Johnson racked up an OVC-high 131 tackles and ranked sixth in the nation with 11.91 tackles per game. Byrd also presided over All-OVC second teamers Roberts and Thad Williams in his debut season at UT Martin.

John Bond offensive coordinator second year John Bond is in his second season on the UT Martin football coaching staff as the offensive coordinator. Bond has 30 years of coaching experience, including each of the last 18 seasons as an offensive coordinator. His teams have made four Football Bowl Subdivision bowl appearances as well as four Football Championship Subdivision playoff appearances. Bond has also mentored 10 current NFL players (Doug Free, Dallas Cowboys; Ulrick John, Indianapolis Colts; Albert Wilson, Kansas City Chiefs; Demaryius Thomas, Denver Broncos; Tashard Choice, Indianapolis Colts; Jonathan Dwyer, Arizona Cardinals; Emmanuel Ogbuehi, Miami Dolphins; Rob Blanchflower, Pittsburgh Steelers; Josh Nesbitt, Buffalo Bills; Anthony Dima, Cleveland Browns) and Kevin Glenn, whose 39,418 career passing yards ranks 10th all-time in Canadian Football League history. In 2014, Bond presided over an offense that ranked as the best in the Ohio Valley Conference in the red zone. The Skyhawks scored on a leaguehigh 85.7 percent of their red zone opportunities (42-for-49) last season, accounting for 33 touchdowns and nine field goals. UT Martin also led the OVC and ranked sixth nationally in time of possession (32:47). All in all, the Skyhawks boasted a balanced offensive attack in 2014, gaining 2,575 yards rushing and 2,549 yards passing. UT Martin averaged 427.0 yards of total offense and 29.7 points per game in Bond’s debut season as the Skyhawk offensive coordinator. Bond first met UT Martin head coach Jason Simpson when they were both on staff at Delta State in 1994. Bond was the quarterbacks coach and passing game coordinator while Simpson was a graduate assistant working with the defensive backs. Bond has served as the offensive coordinator at Massachusetts (2013), Georgia State (2008-12), Georgia Tech (2007), Northern Illinois (200406), Army (2000-03) and Illinois State (1996-99). He also made assistant coaching stops at Delta State (1994-95), UTEP (1991-93), Missouri State (1986-90) and his alma mater Arkansas (1983-85). Bond presided over seven all-conference honorees at Georgia State, where he was selected by longtime collegiate head coach Bill Curry to be the first-ever offensive coordinator in the history of the program which began in 2008. Prior to Georgia State, Bond was offensive coordinator for one season under head coach Chan Gailey at Georgia Tech.

Bond coached Choice, who led the ACC in rushing with 114.9 yards per game. Bond spent three seasons at Northern Illinois, helping the Huskies to a 23-14 record and appearances in two bowls (2004 Silicon Valley Classic Bowl, 2006 Poinsettia Bowl). Bond was directly responsible for a Northern Illinois offense that ranked 11th in rushing, 14th in scoring and 14th in total offense in the 2004 FBS ranks. He oversaw the progress of Garrett Wolfe, who ranked in the top-five nationally in rushing in all three seasons under Bond. Wolfe’s 1,976 rushing yards led the nation in 2006 and parlayed that performance into a third round draft pick selection (93rd overall) by the Chicago Bears. Before his success at Northern Illinois, Bond was the offensive coordinator at Army under head coach Todd Berry, who was the offensive coordinator at UT Martin from 1986-88. Bond ran a wide-open offense that shattered 35 school records in his four years at West Point. Bond also coached under Berry at Illinois State, where he was wide receivers coach in 1996 before being bumped up to offensive coordinator. Bond helped the Redbirds rank in the top-10 in scoring in each of his last two years, culminating with an FCS appearance in both years. Illinois State reached the first round of the FCS playoffs in 1998 before advancing all the way to the FCS national semifinals in 1999, the same year Bond was a finalist for the American Football Coaches Association’s Assistant Coach of the Year Award. Bond also reached the FCS postseason at Missouri State, where the Bears claimed back-to-back conference championships in 1989-90. The Bears advanced to the FCS national quarterfinals in 1989 and reached the FCS first round in 1990. Bond’s coaching career began at Arkansas, where he worked under head coaches Lou Holtz and Ken Hatfield for two years as a student assistant and one year as a graduate assistant. That came after Bond played one season at Arkansas before suffering a career-ending injury. He earned his bachelor’s degree in physical education from Arkansas in 1985. A Rogers, Ark. native, Bond was an all-state quarterback for his father Gary Bond at Rogers High School. John was inducted into the Rogers High Hall of Fame while his father is a member of the state’s high school federation Hall of Fame. Bond is married to the former Jennifer Wilder. The couple has two daughters (MacKenzie and Mallory) and one son (Brody).

SEASON PREVIEW 2014 IN REVIEW

Skyhawks have formed one of the best offensive lines in the Ohio Valley Conference, conceding only 40 sacks in 24 games over two seasons. In that same span, the UT Martin offensive line has helped the Skyhawks average 412 yards of total offense and 26.6 points per outing. Bannon served as a mentor for the final two seasons in the career of Skyhawk all-time great Charles Sweeton. A Preseason AllAmerican in 2014, Sweeton conceded only one sack in his final two seasons at left tackle, earning All-OVC accolades in both 2013 and 2014. His success earned him a free agent opportunity with the Kansas City Chiefs in May of 2015. In his first season at UT Martin (2013), his offensive linemen allowed just 19 sacks - which ranked as the least in the OVC. Bannon coached as an offensive line graduate assistant at the University of Arkansas, where he coached alongside Bret Bielema for two months in 2013 before returning to UT Martin. He also served two years as an offensive line graduate assistant at Marshall University under head coach Doc Holliday from 2011-12. Prior to his stint at Marshall, Bannon was a graduate assistant for tight ends (2010) and the offensive line (2009) at UT Martin. Bannon’s coaching career followed a spectacular playing career for the Skyhawks. A two-time all-OVC selection, he appeared in 45 games over his four-year career, starting in 39. He was a key cog on an offense that produced the program’s first-ever OVC championship in 2006 and was consistently atop several OVC statistical categories. Bannon also had an impact on the UT Martin record books, as he blocked for all-time UT Martin leading rusher Don Chapman for three seasons. Chapman finished with 5,017 rushing yards, becoming just the 14th Division-I player to rush for 1,000 yards in four straight seasons (2004-07). In 2008, Bannon graded out at 80 percent and only allowed one sack, earning All-OVC first team honors after being named to the All-OVC preseason team. He served as team captain for a team that went 8-4 and finished one last-second blocked field goal attempt shy

SKYHAWKS LOOK TO ATTACK GRIDIRON WITH HIGH ASPIRATIONS AND SENIORS LEADING THE WAY When the preseason polls came out in conjunction with Ohio Valley Conference Football Media Day, University of Tennessee at Martin head coach Jason Simpson saw his team picked to finish fourth – the highest preseason selection since 2009. After finishing tied for third in 2014, the Skyhawks will look to continue a late-season push which saw the squad finish the season with five consecutive conference wins, with their lone loss in the final six games coming to topranked Mississippi State. Despite the loss of four players who received NFL opportunities, the Skyhawks feel their cupboard is far from empty with 63 players returning – including 13 starters. “It’s kind of funny when you get picked to finish fourth but you have no preseason All-OVC guys, while last year we had four guys who had NFL opportunities on our squad and we were picked fifth,” said Simpson. “Obviously there are a lot of things that have to happen, but if I could vote for my team, I feel like we can not only compete but win a conference championship. Now there is a lot of work to do to get to that level, but I don’t think people realize that we have 24 seniors, including 21 guys who have been in and know our system.” The Skyhawks will lean heavily on the depth of senior leadership when they take the field to open the season against preseason ranked No. 15 Ole Miss on Saturday, Sept. 5. Fielding a team which features 24 seniors, the Skyhawks feel confident under the direction of several locker room leaders to take the squad to another level in their quest for a conference championship. Entering his 10th season at the helm of the Skyhawks, Simpson brings a winning pedigree into the 2015 campaign. Boasting a career record of 58-45, Simpson ranks as the 10th winningest coach in OVC history while also ranking as the longest tenured. Regardless of the coaching prowess and returners on both sides of the ball, the road to hoisting the OVC trophy will not be without turbulence as the Skyhawks schedule poses some formidable opponents. Not only will the Skyhawks open the season against Ole Miss, they will take on their fourth

Southeastern Conference opponent in the last two years with a Halloween showdown against preseason No. 18 Arkansas. “We are playing two big games against Southeastern Conference opponents, but we know it is necessary to try and get Hardy Graham Stadium fixed,” said Simpson. “We have to get it right because it will allow us to recruit a different level of player. With a beautiful stadium we can show recruits the commitment this university places on football.” From there the squad will host FCS ranked foes No. 9 Jacksonville State and No. 25 Eastern Illinois while traveling to No. 17 Eastern Kentucky in November. “If you look back in 2013, we lost those important games at home,” said Simpson. “This year, for us to be successful, we have to win these critical conference games at home to have a chance. At the end of the day, people are going to remember your record, but when it comes playoff time, it comes down to what you did in those eight conference games.” A big piece of the puzzle for the Skyhawks to be successful will come on the arm of fifth-year senior quarterback Jarod Neal. Neal comes into the season as the predetermined No. 1 quarterback for the first time in his career after ranking as one of the top signal callers in not only the league but the country.

jason simpson

“We’ve asked Jarod to take more of a leadership role,” said Simpson. “He’s always led by example, but now we need him to be aware of everybody’s body language and mental makeup. What I have been pleased to see is that our guys accepted him in that role.” Neal played in all 12 games as a junior, making 11 starts under center. Despite splitting snaps, he finished the season completing 158-of-249 pass attempts for 1,880 yards and 14 touchdowns. Neal ranked second in the OVC in completion percentage (.635, 19th nationally), third in pass efficiency (140.6, 25th nationally), fifth in passing yard average per game (156.7) and sixth in total offense (174.9).

Jarod neal The Hendersonville, Tenn. native, currently ranks seventh in both career passing yards (3,409) and career touchdown passes (23) in school history. He also currently sits 10th in career total offense with 3,638 total yards while adding 32 career touchdowns. “Everything goes through Jarod on the field and I’m convinced that there is no quarterback in the country that has better command of their offense than him,” said Simpson. “It doesn’t mean he makes every play, but he has an idea of what is going on every play. He’s tremendously intelligent but that doesn’t give him justice because he has major arm strength. I’m confident that he can line up and throw with anyone in the country.”

The Skyhawks will turn to their depth at the position, featuring both Ladevin Fair and Najee Ray who saw action last season. The duo combined for 331 yards on 70 carries while scoring a pair of touchdowns. Fans can look for new additions Jaimiee Bowe (freshman) and two-time JUCO national champion Preston Baker (junior) to make contributions in the backfield as well. “I like our group which includes LD (Fair), Najee and eventually Jaimiee who we think will be the complete back,” said Simpson. “He runs with power, has quickness and has size that can translate into being a complete player.” UT Martin has shown in the past that they have the ability to produce NFL-caliber wide receivers in former Skyhawks Quentin Sims and Jeremy Butler. The Skyhawks proved last year that they had plenty of depth but were lacking what Simpson referred to as a go-to-receiver. “That’s the strength and the weakness of this group,” said Simpson. “You look at our group and there are probably two guys at each position that can play multiple positions, and play them hard. However, on the flipside it is a weakness because we need a guy that can catch 60 balls. We don’t have that one guy who on third down, everyone knows who you are going to throw it to, so it can be a positive and a negative.”

“I’m probably more confident that Trent can be a 1,000 yard back than I was with either Abou or DJ,” said Simpson. “Trent is a good solid back that will give you those tough yards and we are very confident that he can lead a talented young group.” Garland is no stranger to the Skyhawk offensive attack after being a featured option for the past two seasons. He has seen action in 12 games each of the past two years while averaging 5.9 yards per carry in 2014. He made the most of his 82 carries, tallying 486 yards and three touchdowns. Serving as the

William Tanner

The Skyhawks will look to a large cast of characters to motor a historically strong offensive attack. As a whole, the receiving core saw 17 players notch multiple receptions last season with Kentucky transfer William Tanner leading the way with 38 receptions for 527 yards and four touchdowns. Michigan State transfer Kyle Kerrick wasn’t far behind with 35 receptions, 410 yards and three touchdowns himself. “Tanner has been able to play ever since he walked on this campus,” said Simpson. “He has a high motor, he’s very competitive and doesn’t believe there is anyone that can cover him. Despite his size, Tanner will be a 45-50 catch receiver for us with the certain swagger he has about himself. Kyle has also shown flashes of not only consistency, but consistency to make big plays.” With a heavy amount of depth already available, the Skyhawks hope their core takes it to another level in 2015. Look for seniors Rod Wright and Taylor Higgason to play a large role along with junior Ben Axline and rising sophomore Caylon Weathers who looks to take a leap in his progression in his second full year. “Caylon has an explosive type of ability and he gets better every day,” said Simpson. “When he doesn’t make a play for us, it is now disappointing because he has shown he can make them through camp. We look at him being the type of guy where he is the main target as long as he continues to progress. Another guy we feel we can turn to for a big play is Ben, he just does things the right way, has good size and can go across the middle.”

backup to Toure last season, he rushed for over 50 yards on five different occasions while notching a seasonhigh 70 yards on eight carries against Cumberland.

Providing depth at the quarterback position will be Florida State transfer Troy Cook, who enters the season at No. 2 on the depth chart. The redshirt sophomore joins the Skyhawks after winning a national championship with the Seminoles in 2013 and posting a combined 27-1 record during his tenure at the school. “Troy is a great kid and he has adapted here,” said Simpson. “He only has a handful of practices under his belt but if you watch his routes through the air, you realize he has a big arm and is a strong competitor. He’s probably similar to where Jarod was two years ago, but it is just a matter of gaining experience and he will be where we need him to be soon.” The Skyhawks will turn to another program pillar to lead a ground attack which has featured a pair of 1,000 yard rushers in the past two seasons in DJ McNeil and Abou Toure. Simpson believes the Skyhawks will have a seamless transition in passing the reigns to fifth-year senior Trent Garland.

James Ratliff Moving over just a couple of feet is one of the more versatile positions on the squad, tight ends. Serving as a position which not only is an extension of the offensive line, the tight ends serves the function of a pass blocker, run blocker or a receiver on any given play. Highlighting that group are a trio of seniors in Corey Rogers, Alabama transfer Malcolm Faciane and James “Smiley” Ratliff – known for his exuberant grin. “Corey has great athletic ability, he is a wide receiver in a big man’s body and he’s worked hard on how to control his body and his technique,” said Simpson. “It is no coincidence that we were able to win the last five games of the season once he became healthy and contributed. He’s the best blocking tight end in this league, bar none.” “That group is pretty deep especially with Smiley. He’s worked so hard through the spring and into fall camp to be our starter. He’s turned himself into a competitive OVC tight end, whether it be on or off the ball. He runs solid routes and provides solid contact at the point of attack while providing invaluable leadership and calmness on offense.” Regardless of how advanced the Skyhawks specialty positions are, the offense starts and stops at the offensive line. In what outsiders consider would be a year of transition after losing NFL lineman Charles Sweeton and his 46 career starts at left tackle, the Skyhawks will turn to an offensive unit which Simpson claims can be just as good as in years past.

“I’m very impressed with that first group,” said Simpson. “I’m not sure that the first group isn’t close to what we had last year with some of the guys returning. Nobody has individual talent like Charles had, but collectively they are right there. We return guys like Kenneth Crenshaw at center after seeing him progress at that position from last year, while Jackson Roberts started several games in 2013 before suffering injuries last year. You add Robert Burleigh, Jordan Murphy and Kadarren Bond – who started at Kentucky before suffering a knee injury – provides a nice athletic ability at right tackle.” The Skyhawks will look to the group of Jackson Roberts, Burleigh, Crenshaw, Murphy and Bond to man the front five to start the season while JUCO transfers Olandrious Booker and Tyrone Patterson combine with former redshirts Nick Allen, Alex Roberts and Mark Garrett to provide depth at the positions. Flipping to the other side of the ball, the Skyhawks will look to continue their growth as one of the nation’s top defensive teams under the direction of fourth-year defensive coordinator Jeff Byrd. The squad will return its 3-35 defensive system, looking to use its speed to get into the backfield and pressure the skill positions.

jordan murphy “We try to make it a foot race instead of a wrestling match,” said Simpson. “Our defense is based out of speed and that’s why we play a 3-3-5 formation. We hope that our guys are going to be able to run around blocks and make it a foot race. We have wanted to be fast, and I think we will be even faster.

Jordan Landry We bring back pretty much the same guys as last year, but it’s another year of experience combined with better alignments and assignments which should only improve that group. We’ve got to hang our hat on that and limit the mistakes on the back end of plays.” Fans will be able to see the speed throughout the secondary in a unit which returns several standouts from a year ago, including the team’s top returning tackler in fifth-year senior Walter Evans who recorded 66 tackles to go along with three interceptions and three tackles for loss. Joining in the action is Jordan Landry who established himself as one of the top defensive backs in the OVC last season. He ranked fourth in the league in passes defended (11, 0.92 per game) while accumulating 30 tackles and 0.5 tackles for loss. Serving as the team’s top DB, Landry tallied 11 pass breakups against the opposition’s best receivers. “Jordan has had a great camp,” said Simpson. “If you look at the last 4-5 weeks of the season, Jordan took a lot of criticism, but when you look at his 11 pass breakups, you can tell a lot of people are coming at him. Aaron Simms has a lot of ability, including a bunch of consistent reps which only make his ability shine more. Walter, Terrious Triplett and Kahlid Hagens all provide a lot of ball skills back there. You add Taino Fears-Perez who can play all five positions back there while Marquis Clemons is a tremendous tackler that can fill up the box, then you have a unit which packs a powerful punch and a lot of protection.”

Not only will Redditt use his golden boot for scoring purposes, he will get the first crack at replacing arguably the program’s best punter in James Satterfield who set career records in punting average and single-season punting average. True freshman Justen Dubay will also get a look at punting duties. “Jackson has been outstanding at whatever you put in front of him whether it be kickoffs or field goals and now punt team,” said Simpson. “I wouldn’t trade him for anyone in the league. He’s a good solid player, probably top-two in the league. Now as he moves to punt team, he might not average 45 yards per punt like those before him, but I trust him to get it off. This is certainly a position that we are worried about, but with a young punter, we feel comfortable giving Jackson a chance to bridge that gap for us until those behind him get acclimated to the collegiate game and develop the ability to flip the field.” With championship aspirations at the forefront and senior leadership at the helm, the Skyhawks will look to continue to climb the ladder and compete for the program’s second OVC championship this season.

Alongside the stellar play of Dance, the Skyhawks expect a pair of newer names to compete for prime roles. Junior Caleb Counce saw limited action notching six tackles last season, but his work in the offseason has led to a starting role heading out of camp while true freshman Kevin Prather, Jr. will look to accomplish a feat rarely seen within the Skyhawk system. “The biggest surprise of camp has been Kevin Prather,” said Simpson. “It’s safe to say that he is starting right now. He’s outstanding and a very physical player. Sure he makes some mistakes, but he makes up for those with his strength. He will be the first true freshman who has started for us in a long time, even players like Tony Bell didn’t start as a true freshman.” “Caleb is a very smart player and doesn’t waste a lot of steps at the other linebacker,” said Simpson. “He has provided some depth with Garrett Wall, Julian Thompson-Clay and James Cotton. We are very athletic at that position, there is no doubt about that. Now who are the players who are going to make the plays that Tony left behind? I don’t know but we have some talent.”

The front three on the Skyhawk defensive line will see the return of a pair of starters in Deantae Glover and Keith Jones. The pair combined to tally 60 total tackles along with eight tackles for loss and 3.5 sacks. The pair will be joined by local product Damani Taylor who has broken camp as the other starter after sitting out last season following a transfer. The trio is poised to be joined by senior UAB transfer Parrish Huddleston along with sophomore Jay Murphy and senior Garrett Vincent. “I really like what Keith is doing in the middle while Jay is an All-OVC caliber player as well,” said Simpson. “Deantae should also be an all-conference type of guy while Damani has moved his way into a starting role for us. Right now I think there are four guys who can play at a high level while we look to see if we can get a fifth or a sixth to join in the action. You can live with five that you can turn to, but it would really be nice to be able to eventually find that sixth that wants to jump in and make a difference.” Bridging the gap between the offense and defense will turn to the shoulders of fifth-year senior Jackson Redditt. He is poised to make another strong push further up the UT Martin record books while providing consistency that is hardly matched conference wide. Redditt ranked first in the league in PAT kicking percentage at 97.8 percent, second in field goal percentage at 80 percent, fourth in field goals with 12 and sixth in scoring with 6.7 points per game. He currently ranks sixth in all-time kick scoring at UT Martin with 151 points, sitting just 70 points out of first.

With the loss of the school’s all-time sack leader and defensive mainstay Tony Bell to graduation, the Skyhawks will look to reload a linebacker group which has provided consistency in years past. The core will be highlighted by the return of OVC All-Newcomer selection Nick Dance who returns for his second and final year in a Skyhawk uniform looking to take his game to the next level after notching 56 total tackles along with one sack, five tackles for loss and one interception last season.

n 1933, at the height of the great depression, all intercollegiate athletics were dropped because of inadequate funds. Emphasis was placed on intramurals, but students and the public were dismayed at the lack of intercollegiate competition. On Feb. 21, 1934, the UT Board of Trustees Committee on the Junior College met in Martin. County superintendents from Weakley and the seven surrounding couties submitted a request for intercollegiate athletics to be reinstated. This along with several other requests was accommodated, and football resumed regular season play in the fall of 1934. 1934 (7-1-0) W.E.

uring the United States involvement in World War II, from 194245, all regular athletics were suspended. However, according to Robert L. Carroll’s book The University of Tennessee at Martin: The First One Hundred Years, verbal sources indicate six-man football was played in 1942 and 1943 against Lambuth, Bethel, and perhaps others. Joe Black Hayes, assistant coach to Paul Hug, was head coach of these two years while Coach Hug was away in military service. Mentioning of a “limited six-man program” can also be found in copies of the 1969 and 1970 football media guides. No official records of games played have been found.

MARTIN – UT Martin was successful in its first-ever NCAA Division II Playoff appearance, defeating visiting Butler University of Indianapolis, Ind., in a rain-soaked contest.

KINGSVILLE, Texas -- Host Texas A&I put on a flawless exhibition in ending the Pacers’ hopes in a quarterfinal playoff game.

The Pacer defense limited the nation’s Division II leading rusher and scorer Steve Roberts to 70 yards on 25 attempts. The front four, led by Emanuel McNeil, Jerome Rinehart and Sam Dudley, kept constant pressure on the Bulldogs. The Pacers’ run ‘n’ shoot offense was slowed by the weather. After a scoreless first quarter, UTM posted a strong second frame. Leon Reed fired a 34-yard strike to Andre Langley and

The Pacers were guilty of five turnovers while the Javelinas played error-free football, much to the delight of the partisan and sun-baked crowd. The temperature at kickoff was 95 degrees. Tailback Johnny Bailey would win a total of three Division II Player of the Year Awards, but it was hardrunning fullback Heath Sherman who did the damage. Sherman ran for four TD’s.

NFL Connection: Jerry Reese

record book

2014 in review

season preview

New York Giants Senior VP and General Manager Jerry Reese is in his ninth season as the Giants’ Senior Vice President and General Manager. Reese is one of the most successful general managers in the NFL. His first eight seasons as head of the franchise’s football operations included victories in Super Bowls XLII and XLVI, a 71-57 regular season record and an 8-1 postseason mark. During his tenure the Giants have won two NFC East championships, earned three postseason berths and finished .500 or better in six consecutive seasons. Reese was named the Giants’ Senior Vice President and General Manager on Jan. 16, 2007. He succeeded Ernie Accorsi, who had held the positions for nine years before retiring. Reese has been a member of the Giants organization since 1994. Prior to becoming the G.M., he spent four seasons as the team’s Director of Player Personnel. Reese coordinated the Giants’ college scouting, was in charge of the team’s draft preparation and ran the draft room as the players were selected. When Accorsi retired, the team’s ownership selected Reese as the team’s third general manager since 1979, when the late George Young assumed the position. Young held the position until 1997, when Accorsi took over. Accorsi, who had helped convince Reese to leave college scouting and join the pro personnel department of the Giants, promoted him and championed his cause. The selection of Reese was historic, as he was the third African-American general manager in NFL history, joining Baltimore’s Ozzie Newsome and Houston’s Rick Smith. It was particularly poignant for Reese to learn of his appointment on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. While serving as the Giants’ Director of Player Personnel, Reese oversaw all aspects of the team’s college scouting. During his tenure as personnel director, the Giants drafted Eli Manning, Osi Umenyiora, David Diehl, David Tyree, Chris Snee, Gibril Wilson, Justin Tuck, Brandon Jacobs, Barry Cofield, Corey Webster and Kiwanuka, all of whom played big roles in the 2007 championship season and beyond. Reese originally joined the Giants’ scouting department on Dec. 15, 1994. In the spring of 1999, he became Dave Gettleman’s assistant in the pro personnel department. In that position, he scouted the Giants’ upcoming opponents and evaluated NFL players. Reese was promoted to Director of Player Personnel on May 1, 2002. Reese came to the Giants after a successful playing and coaching career at the University of Tennessee at Martin. During his college playing career (1981-84), Reese was honored as a two-time All-Gulf South Conference pick. He is among the leaders on UT-Martin’s all-time career list in interceptions. Reese led the team with seven interceptions in 1982 and was UT-Martin's leading tackler in 1984 with 99. Reese was GSC Defensive Player of the Week three times during his career and was named team MVP following his senior season.

This field was one of the first lighted stadiums in West Tennessee. In 2001 against Gardner-Webb, the stadium was named in honor of Hardy M. Graham a long time donor and supporter of the university. Graham’s financial contributions to the university have exceeded $1 million over the past 40 years.

Hardy m. Graham Stadium

The playing surface was officially named H. K. Grantham Field in 1974 when UT Martin hosted Nicholls State. Grantham was the coach of the football, baseball, and men’s basketball teams. He also headed the department of physical education and served as director of athletics. The stadium accommodates 7,500 fans with nearly 1,900 chairback seats. About 1,200 are located on the east side while 400 chairbacks are located on the west side. A new artificial surface, Field Turf, replaced the natural grass on H.K. Grantham Field. The new playing surface features orange end zones with UT Martin and Skyhawks stitched in each end zone.

After the 2015 season concludes, the press box will be demolished, clearing the way for a new press box project. The four floor project will house a new academic support and club level, along with a new press box, visiting locker room, concessions and classrooms. The project is schedule to open prior to the 2016 season.

Now in its 68th 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 began competition in the 2012-13 academic year. The addition of Belmont gave the OVC 12 members, the most the league has had at one time in its illustrious history. The move added a second team in the city of Nashville and was the first addition to the league since Southern Illinois University Edwardsville joined in 2008. Subsequently, the league has shown its stability over the past decade, seeing only one member institution depart over the past 15 years. The 2009-10 school year saw a change in leadership as Beth DeBauche was named the seventh full-time Commissioner in league history on July 28, 2009. 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 history dates back to 1948, but seeds for the new league were actually planted in 1941. It was then that Roy Stewart, the athletics director at Murray State, Charles “Turkey” Hughes, the athletics director at Eastern Kentucky, and Kelly Thompson, the public relations director at Western Kentucky, first broached the idea of forming a new conference. Discussions were put on hold by World War II, but reemerged February 27-28, 1948 at the Kentucky Hotel in Louisville as the three original institutions combined with Morehead State, Louisville and Evansville to form the OVC. In the 1950s, the OVC became a pioneer on a much more significant scale socially. During times of racial segregation, league member Morehead State became one of the first non-traditionally black mid-southern institutions to accept a black student. In 1958 Marshall Banks earned athletically-related aid at Morehead, which signed a second black athlete, Howard Murphy, a year later. In 1961 Murphy earned all-conference recognition as a halfback in football. With racial barriers broken, the rest of the institutions in the league began to provide educational and athletic opportunities to African-Americans. After Title IX legislation passed in 1972, women’s athletics began 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 began formulating plans for women’s athletics in 1975 and 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 conference added women’s golf and softball in 1994 and women’s soccer in 1998. Through the past 67 years, 15 teams have won or shared the league’s football title. The list is led by Eastern Kentucky, winner of 21 outright or shared football crowns, which is tied for the most in Football Championship Subdivision history (with Massachusetts). Among OVC teams, former member Middle Tennessee is next with 11 titles, followed by Tennessee Tech with 10, and Murray State and former member Western Kentucky with eight apiece. Eastern Illinois has claimed seven football crowns and Jacksonville State has four, while Morehead State, Tennessee State and former members Evansville and East Tennessee State have captured two apiece. Austin Peay, Southeast Missouri, UT Martin and former member Youngstown State have one title apiece. Murray State and Evansville tied for the initial football championship, and the Racers participated in the first-ever bowl game by an OVC team, tying Sul Ross State 21-21 in the 1948 Tangerine Bowl. From 1948 to 1975, OVC teams played in 15 bowl games, winning eight of them. Eastern Kentucky and Western Kentucky were also participants in the NCAA Division II playoffs in the early and mid-1970s prior to the NCAA’s reclassification of football programs into Division I-AA. The term “I-AA” lasted until the end of the 2006 season when it was changed to Division I Football Championship Subdivision (FCS). 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 1979, four of the nation’s top teams were invited to the playoffs, and two of them - Eastern Kentucky and Murray State were from the OVC. Murray dropped its semifinal game to Lehigh, but the Colonels nipped NevadaReno in double overtime and claimed the national championship a week later with a 30-7 victory over Lehigh. EKU was coached by former All-America quarterback Roy Kidd, who was in his 16th year at the helm of his alma mater and who skippered the Colonels to a second national title three years later. Following the 2002 season, Kidd retired after 39 years at EKU; upon retirement, he ranked sixth alltime among Division I coaches with 315 victories, earning him a spot in the College Football Hall of Fame. EKU’s now 21 FCS playoff appearances are the second for the most all-time (behind only Montana’s 23 berths). In addition to Kidd, other coaching legends in the OVC include Charles “Bubber” Murphy, who coached at Middle Tennessee from 1947-1968, Western Kentucky’s Jimmy Feix (1968-83), Wilburn Tucker (1954-67) and Don Wade (1968-82) of Tennessee Tech, Bill Ferguson (1967-77) of Murray State, Guy Penny (1959-67) of Morehead State and Boots Donnelly (1977-78 at Austin Peay; 1979-1998 at Middle Tennessee). Following the 2011 season Eastern Illinois head coach Bob Spoo retired after 25 years at the school (the last 16 as members of the OVC). In his time as an OVC coach he compiled 92 total victories (fifth-most in league history) and 68 OVC wins (fourth-most in league history) and was inducted into the OVC Hall of Fame in 2012. A sampling of former OVC football stars, some of whom were All-Americans during their collegiate careers before achieving stardom at the professional ranks, include Jim Youngblood and Larry Schreiber (Tennessee Tech), Phil Simms (Morehead State), Virgil Livers and Dale Lindsey (Western Kentucky), Myron Guyton and Chad Bratzke (Eastern Kentucky), Cortland Finnegan (Samford) and Tony Romo and Jimmy Garoppolo (Eastern Illinois). In 2008, former Tennessee State standout Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie became just the fourth NFL First Round draft pick in OVC history when he was selected 16th overall by the Arizona Cardinals. He would break into the starting lineup halfway through his rookie season and started at cornerback for the Cardinals in Super Bowl XLIII. The 2007 season marked a return to scholarship football and the OVC for the Austin Peay Governors. Following the 1996 season the Governors dropped scholarship football and competed as both an independent (1997-00, 2006) and as a member of the Pioneer Football League (2001-05). The 2007 season also brought new vernacular to the Ohio Valley Conference and the division formerly known as I-AA. Beginning with the 2006 National Championship game the term I-AA was changed to NCAA Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) in a decision by the Division I Board of Directors. The new label was chosen to communicate in a positive and clear manner the unique differences between Division I football categories (chiefly, the post-season opportunity) while still defining them within the Division I experience. The FCS includes programs that compete in an effort to participate in the NCAA championship postseason structure (one of 89 NCAA national championships) as opposed to the Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) which competes in an effort to participate in the postseason bowl system (the 41 NCAA-licensed events which includes the Bowl Championship Series). In 2010 Southeast Missouri State, picked to finish seventh in the preseason poll, compiled a 7-1 Conference record on the way to its first OVC Championship since joining the league in 1991. Overall the Redhawks were 9-2 during the regular season and earned a berth in the FCS Playoffs, its first playoff berth at any level in the program’s 104-year history. Southeast would lose to eventual national champion Eastern Washington in the second round of the playoffs. Head coach Tony Samuel capped the year by winning the Sports Network’s Eddie Robinson Award, given to the National Coach of the Year. Samuel was the second OVC coach to win the award (joining Murray State’s Houston Nutt who won the award in 1995). For only the second time in league history in 2011, three teams shared the OVC football championship, as Eastern Kentucky, Jacksonville State and Tennessee Tech finished with 6-2 records.

The only other time in league history more than two champions were crowned at the end of the year was 1962 (when four teams shared the crown). In 2012 Eastern Illinois became just the fourth football team in OVC history to go from worstto-first in winning the OVC Championship. The Panthers were led by head coach Dino Babers who became just the fourth first-year head coach to win an OVC Championship (joining Boots Donnelly in 1977, Jason Simpson in 2006 and Dean Hood in 2008 – Jacksonville State head coach John Grass would become the fifth coach to achieve that feat in 2014). During the year Eastern Illinois junior wide receiver Erik Lora shattered the FCS singleseason receptions record, hauling in 136 passes in 12 games; that mark was 13 more than the previous NCAA record and 44 more than the previous OVC mark. In 2013 Eastern Illinois repeated as OVC Champions behind Walter Payton Award winner Jimmy Garoppolo. The quarterback became just the second OVC player to earn the National Player of the Year Award, joining former EIU signal caller Tony Romo (2002). Garoppolo passed for 5,050 yards (second most in NCAA single-season history) and 53 touchdowns (fourth in NCAA history) in leading the Panthers to a 12-2 record and berth to the quarterfinals of the FCS Playoffs. Garoppolo was drafted by the New England Patriots in the second round of the 2014 NFL Draft, becoming just the fifth OVC player selected in that round and just the fifth OVC quarterback ever selected (and first since 1998). The 2013 season saw the OVC snap a 19-game playoff losing streak dating back to the 2000 season. Tennessee State shutout Butler (marking the first OVC road playoff victory since 1986) to snap the streak while later that day Jacksonville State smashed Samford in the first round. A week later Eastern Illinois beat Tennessee State while Jacksonville State won at McNeese State to each advance to the quarterfinals; that marked the first time the OVC put two teams in the quarterfinals in the same season since 1991. Overall the four total playoff wins in the same season established a new OVC record. Over its 67 years, OVC teams have garnered national championships and bowl games in football, along with national team or individual titles in the sports of rifle, cross country, track and golf. The playing field is not the only place where OVC athletes are working hard. The league also recognizes excellence in the classroom. Six ScholarAthlete 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 America (CoSIDA) Academic All-America program began, the Ohio Valley Conference has had 243 student-athletes honored with the award, including 51 over the last five years (2010-15). 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, Morehead State and Murray State, along with Austin Peay, Belmont, Eastern Illinois, Jacksonville State, Southeast Missouri, SIU Edwardsville, Tennessee State, Tennessee Tech and UT Martin.

JULIO FREIRE

ATHLETICS DIRECTOR HIRED: JAN. 13, 2014 Julio Freire, formerly the assistant/associate athletics director for development at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, was formally introduced as the 12th athletics director in University of Tennessee at Martin history on Jan. 13, 2014. He succeeds Phil Dane, who retired on Dec. 31, 2013 after 34 years of service at UT Martin, the last 14 of which were as athletics director. “At certain times, certain individuals rise to the top and that’s really what happened in this case,” UT Martin Chancellor Dr. Tom Rakes said of the athletics director search. “Julio demonstrates an understanding of protocol and team spirit necessary for this type of position. He also exhibits a level of energy and understanding of how to interact with a whole cross section of individuals. He has seen the intricacies of Division-I athletics and we are fortunate to have him here.” “It’s such an exciting day for the future of Skyhawk nation,” OVC Commissioner Beth DeBauche said. “I am absolutely delighted for the opportunity to work with Julio and to get to work with his family as we move forward. There are some exciting things going on in the OVC and it’s the perfect time to be joining the league. I know Julio brings the right energy, excitement, vision and knowledge to really be a contributor to this fine conference.” Freire stressed three messages at his introductory press conference, noting that he had a plan for comprehensive excellence, he would remain focused on the student-athlete and he would engage the community in a meaningful way.

“We will embrace the spirit of planning for comprehensive excellence, all in support of the mission of the University of Tennessee at Martin. Our plan for excellence will allow us to build upon the department’s history and traditions. With this plan, we will guide and support our student-athletes as they aspire to reach their fullest potential academically, athletically and socially.” -Julio Freire

“We will embrace the spirit of planning for comprehensive excellence, all in support of the mission of the University of Tennessee at Martin,” Freire said. “Our plan for excellence will allow us to build upon the department’s history and traditions. With this plan, we will guide and support our student-athletes as they aspire to reach their fullest potential academically, athletically and socially.” “We will embrace high ideals that a UT Martin student-athlete should be leaving this great university with a meaningful degree and had been in position to compete for championships,” Freire said. “Everyone on my staff throughout the department and throughout the university will know that the academic achievement of our student-athletes is our top priority. It is my intent to have us all represent this institution with the highest degree of integrity at all times.” “We will work to communicate a plan that will focus on the well-being of our student-athletes,” Freire said. “This plan will be shared within our community, with university leaders, with the academic community, with alumni and fans. We will be inviting them all to be part of our plans and part of our success. I believe that community engagement must extend beyond the campus border, beyond the city limits and beyond the great state of Tennessee.” Freire brings 22 years of experience within intercollegiate athletics and educational settings to UT Martin. He most recently worked under athletics director Jim Livengood at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas as senior associate athletics director from 2010-13. Freire worked closely with university relations, department leadership, athletics development, external operations, athletic program administration and compliance while at the Mountain West Conference affiliate. Prior to his time at UNLV, Freire spent time at the University of Arizona from 2007-10 as the assistant/associate athletics director for development under Livengood. Among Freire’s accomplishments at the Pac-12 school were the increase of planned gifts by $4.5 million and serving as the athletic program liaison for the highly successful football and men’s basketball programs. 2006 OVC CHAMPIONS • 2015 UT MARTIN FOOTBALL GUIDE • 2014 SGT.
