Watson Brown, Athletics to host weekly Insiders' Lunch

Fans invited to hear head coach give
the “inside” scoop on Golden Eagles

COOKEVILLE, Tenn. – Fans of Tennessee Tech football who would like to go “inside” the Golden Eagles each week with head coach Watson Brown are invited as he hosts a weekly Football Insiders’ Lunch each Monday during the 2010 season.

The Insiders’ Lunch made its debut last season with Brown talking about his team and showing video footage with a detailed explanation of several key plays. It proved to be an extremely popular feature as the veteran coach pointed out aspects of plays that many fans don’t see while watching the games.   

“I really enjoyed showing the video and breaking down the plays, and I think the fans who came to the lunches saw the game from a new perspective,” Brown said. “They asked questions and it was a lot of fun.”

Now in his fourth season as Golden Eagle head coach, Brown will talk each week about the previous contest and take a look forward to the next opponent. The lunches will feature a relaxed, informal setting each Monday in the Eagles’ Nest in Eblen Center.

 “These lunches are meant to be a gathering place for friends of Tech football in a comfortable, casual atmosphere, and we’ll just spend the hour talking about Golden Eagle football,” Brown said. “I’ll try to answer any questions fans have about the team, the games, and Tech football, and try to keep everyone up-to-date on the program.”

The first lunch of the 2010 season is scheduled for Monday, Sept. 13, following Tech’s game at TCU and prior to the home opener against Lane College. It will be held every Monday through Nov. 22, from 12 to 1 p.m., a total of 11 weekly lunches.

Fans can reserve an Insiders’ Lunch ticket to the entire year for $110 per person, a cost of just $10 per week for the 11 weekly events. Fans ordering a ticket to the entire season of the Insiders’ Lunch can include it with their season ticket order, or purchase the meals separately.

The meals will be catered by Chartwell’s, Tech’s on-campus food service.
