The Golden Eagle football team will host Senior Day, Military Appreciation Day and Scout Day at tomorrow’s game against the Skyhawks of the University of Tennessee at Martin at 1:30 p.m.
“As seniors, we have all enjoyed a great career here together and we have represented Tech in a positive way,” Tre Lamb, senior quarterback, said. “It means a lot to all of us to play at Tucker Stadium for the last time this weekend.”
The Golden Eagles have a tough challenge for their final home game of the season.
UT-Martin is ranked No. 1 in the Ohio Valley Conference with a 5-1 record in conference play and a 7-2 record overall.
The matchup between these two teams Oct. 1 of last season was full of big plays and a dramatic finish that ended in Tech’s favor with a 34-31 victory.
However, tomorrow’s game will have much more on the line.
In addition to it being the Golden Eagles’ last home game of the season, the team is winless in OVC play so far with just one game left after tomorrow.
It’s also a big day on campus honoring all of the senior football players, military members and scouts.
“I’m looking forward to seeing my roommates play their last game at home,” Jake McIntosh, former linebacker, said. “It should be a fun day for friends, families and everyone in attendance.”
The seniors who will be honored during the game include Jordan Adams, Slade Adams, Michael Baker, Hunter Beedle, Zach Bush, Marcus Edwards, Howard Griffin, Taylor Hennigan, Tremaine Hudson, Will Johnson, Tre Lamb, Tommie McBride, Caleb Mitchell, Matt Moran, Kedrick Towles, Adam Urbano, LaDarrius Verge and Zack Ziegler.
After tomorrow’s game, the Golden Eagles will conclude the 2012 regular season in Clarksville visiting the Austin Peay State University Governors in an early game, kicking off at 11 a.m.
