Get to know your favorite Golden Eagles through new Personality Profiles


COOKEVILLE, Tenn. --  To go along with the ever-expanding Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube campaigns, Tennessee Tech is offering its fans yet another avenue of access to Golden Eagle student-athletes. A new feature on TTUSports.com gives fans an inside look into the lives of their favorite TTU athletes. Each personality profile boasts a video interview with the student-athlete, a biography of their playing career, and a contest which pits two of their teammates against one another to see who knows that athlete the best. 

Find out which professional athlete Elise Robertson absolutely despises, why Demetrous Garrett's teammates call him "Baby Savage" and even what cartoon character Emily Homan would marry. See how well their closest teammates know them off the field and out of the classroom. 

The series will feature several student-athletes from each of Tech's 14 sports over the course of the year. 

Below are the first three in the series:

  • Volleyball's Elise Robertson
  • Football's Demetrous Garrett
  • Soccer's Emily Homan

Look for new profiles just below the headlines and schedule section on the TTUSports.com homepage.
