Big South to Video Stream Football Media Day Events
The Big South Conference will once again stream its Big South Football Media Day events live through the Big South Network, starting at 1:30 p.m. on Thursday.
The Big South's head football coaches and select players will officially kick off the 2013 Big South football season at the conference's annual Media Day event to be held at the Charlotte Plaza Uptown Hotel.
The event will start with a luncheon at Noon during which the Big South will release its annual preseason poll and preseason all-conference teams. In addition, all six Big South head football coaches will speak during the luncheon, plus interviews with the Big South Preseason Offensive and Defensive Players of the Year.
Following the luncheon, breakout media sessions will be held, during which the Big South Network will stream interviews with the head coaches and each team's player representatives. Joining second-year head coach Turner Gill in Charlotte for the Flames will be redshirt sophomore quarterback Josh Woodrum and senior defensive lineman Cory Freeman.
