Football team to help with campus cleanup effort Tuesday afternoon

COOKEVILLE, Tenn. -- The entire Tennessee Tech football team will fan out across campus Tuesday afternoon to fulfill a community service project of helping to keep the campus clean. The nearly 100 members of the squad will be picking up litter on campus and throughout campus buildings, beginning around 3 p.m.

"The grounds crew at Tennessee Tech does a remarkable job at keeping our campus clean and looking good," said Watson Brown, Golden Eagle head coach. "We're proud to bring recruits, fans, alumni and other visitors on campus, because we know it will always look great.

"Our guys just thought this project would be a good way to give something back to the University, and show their support of the efforts of the entire campus community at making everything look so good."

The Golden Eagles wrapped up spring drills on Saturday. The 2010 season will get underway on Saturay, Sept. 3, with a game at Arkansas.
