First Walker County Football Media Day set for Monday

Posted

Prep football players and coaches will converge on Warehouse 319 on Monday for the first Walker County Football Media Day, beginning at 11 a.m.

The joint media venture by the Daily Mountain Eagle and WJLX 101.5 F.M. will feature coverage of all seven teams in Walker County, including interviews with coaches and players.

Team segments will begin at 11:15 a.m. with the Cordova Blue Devils and will continue with the Carbon Hill Bulldogs, Oakman Wildcats, Dora Bulldogs, Curry Yellow Jackets, Sumiton Christian Eagles and conclude with the Jasper Vikings.

The event will be broadcast live on WJLX and have live video streaming on the Daily Mountain Eagle Facebook page.

Eagle publisher James Phillips, who will also serve as the moderator for the event, expects that Media Day will serve as a kickoff to the high school football season that will both entertain and inform fans and supporters across the county.

“Walker County Football Media Day is an idea that has been kicked around by the Daily Mountain Eagle sports staff for many years. It is a community event, which we are using as the official kickoff for the high school football season. All teams in Walker County will be represented, and we expect it to be informative and fun,” Phillips said. “We love football in Walker County, and the start of the season is always an exciting time. We invite the fans to come down to Warehouse 319 on Monday to support their coaches and players. I’d like to personally thank Warehouse 319 for sponsoring the event with our newspaper, and I would also like to thank the other media outlets attending Walker County Media Days. This is a celebration of our community and our area student athletes, and we expect it to be an annual event.”
