Annual Football Photo Day set for Monday, Aug. 9 in Tucker Stadium

Photo Day is free and open to the public

COOKEVILLE, Tenn. - Football fans, families and friends are invited to Tennessee Tech's Tucker Stadium on Monday, August 9, for the team’s annual Photo Day, which will take place on Overall Field from 10 a.m. until noon.

The Golden Eagles report to campus Sunday, Aug. 8, to open fall camp, and will assemble on the field Monday for the official team photo at 10 a.m. After that, individual and group photos will be taken, and fans are encouraged to meet with the players and coaching staff.

Tech opens the regular season on Saturday, Sept. 4, with a game at the University of Arkansas. Following a game the next week at TCU, the Golden Eagles host their first home game on Thursday evening, Sept. 16, against Lane College.

Head coach Watson Brown, heading into his fourth season at the Golden Eagle controls, will welcome 90 players to camp. His enthusiasm for the coming season is evident with the start of camp just days away.

"I’m looking forward to this football season and I'm anxious to get started," Brown said. "I'm really excited about this team. We accomplished some goals last year and we’re proud of that, and this year we’re setting the same goals.

This team has a tremendous work ethic, their attitude is really good, and we have some new faces I'm looking forward to seeing,” Brown said.

Season tickets for the 2010 Golden Eagle season are on sale through the Athletics Ticket Office in Eblen Center, or by calling (931) 3720-3940. Tickets may also be purchased online at TTUsports.com.
