Mocs Set To Host Chattanooga Football Women's Clinic Friday

Monday, July 21, 2014
Hey Mocs fans, we are now just one week away from the 2014 Chattanooga Football Women’s Clinic.  This year’s event is Friday, July 25 at 6 p.m. at Finley Stadium.  Ladies, we know you love your Mocs, so bring your Blue and Gold spirit and join us for an evening of fun and football. 

Admission is $40 through pre-registration or at the door. UTC students, faculty and staff can get in for $25 per person.  A link for preregistration is available here or at the top of the page.
  

All attendees receive an official Women's Clinic visor.  Door prizes and other awards will be distributed throughout the evening, and all proceeds benefit the Huesman’s Huddle program. Entering its fifth year, Huesman's Huddle is a very popular allotment of tickets donated by Mocs fans, alumni and supporters that are used to provide free admission to home football games to underprivileged fans.

Doors open at 5:30 p.m. to give participants a chance to mingle with other Mocs fans and coaches, as well as enjoy hors d’ oeuvres and beverages.  The formal part of the night kicks-off at 6 p.m. 

The clinic includes instruction from the coaching staff, both on the field and in the Finley Stadium Club.  Prizes will be awarded for the Punt, Pass and Kick winner, as well as the best touchdown dance.  Participants are encouraged to experience as many, or as few, of the on-field activities as they are comfortable.

New this year is a Chattanooga Football Tailgating Recipe Book.  We need all participants to fill out the form at the top of the page with your best tailgating recipe.  You do not have to attend the clinic to submit a recipe.  We will compile the best submissions before the clinic and have the book ready for each of the participants. 

We encourage you to wear casual attire along with tennis shoes to make sure you can have the best experience!  Parking is available on the skybox side of the stadium, located on the corner of Carter and 20th streets.

For more information on the 2014 Chattanooga Mocs Women's Football Clinic, contact UTC Athletics Director of Marketing Geoff Wilcox at 423-425-2257 (geoffrey-wilcox@utc.edu).

Dr. Livesay Should Step Down From Bryan College Leadership - And Response (3)

I am writing in response to the July 25th article, "Online Petition Seeks Removal of Bryan College President, Board Chair".  As a graduate of Bryan College (1984), I am saddened by the response of Dr. Stephen Livesay and the Board of Trustees regarding the online petition.  The purpose of the petition really has little to do with the school’s “clarification” of its ...

Roy Exum: ‘No Sir -- It Stays Here’

To any of the millions who have served the United States on the field of combat, the most hallowed and prized distinction is our nation’s Medal of Honor. It is never given, it is always earned before it is ever awarded.  At least that’s the way it was up until a sun-splashed Wednesday three weeks ago in Vicenza, Italy. There is an Army base there that houses the 173 rd Airborne ... (click for more)
