The South Atlantic Conference will hold its first-ever Football Digital Media Day on Monday, August 12, as part of its preview of the 2013 college football season. This will offer media and fans alike a unique opportunity to interact live with the league's head coaches. SAC head coaches will answer questions submitted from media
and fans live at www.theSAC.com between approximately 10:05 a.m. and 12:05 p.m. on Aug. 12
Questions for the coaches will also be accepted via Twitter, using the hashtag #SACFB. Each coach will field questions for approximately 15 minutes.
Lenoir-Rhyne Head Football Coach Mike Houston, the two-time SAC Coach Of The Year, will take questions from 11:50 a.m. to 12:05 p.m. The South Atlantic Conference Football Digital Media Day will coincide with the release of the 2013 SAC preseason coaches' poll, offering participants exclusive access to initial reactions from the coaches.
There will be no restrictions on who is allowed access to participate in SAC Football Digital Media Day - a change in philosophy from the majority of college football's preseason events.
Lenoir-Rhyne is coming off a 9-3 season in 2012 including a 6-1 mark in the South Atlantic Conference. The Bears also won their second straight conference title including its first outright league championship in 37 seasons.
In addition, L-R earned its first playoff berth in 50 years last fall and won its first postseason contest since 1962, a 21-6 triumph over Fort Valley State in the First Round of the NCAA Division II Playoffs.
Lenoir-Rhyne opens the 2013 campaign on Saturday, September 7, at home against Concord. Kickoff at Moretz Stadium is scheduled for 7:00 p.m.
