Morehead St. athletes take to the streets to promote school teams

MOREHEAD, Ky. -- More than 200 Morehead State student-athletes, coaches and administrators painted the town blue and gold on Saturday morning as representatives of the football, volleyball, soccer, cheerleading and dance programs handed out several hundred schedule posters and cards.

"Everyone in our football program is excited about the 2014 season," head coach Rob Tenyer said. "Today was about building relationships with our existing fans and recruiting some new ones. It's always great to get out and be visible in the community. Playing at home should always be an advantage, and we need Jayne Stadium to be packed this fall. We have much higher expectations on the field this year, but we also need our fans to step up and help our game-day atmosphere."

Morehead State's cheerleaders and dancers wore full uniforms, while its football players donned game jerseys. Eagle soccer and volleyball student-athletes wore t-shirts representing their sports.

"Today was a new event for Morehead State Athletics, and all indications point to it being successful," Assistant Athletic Director for External Affairs Brad Smith added. "We had 100 percent participation from our fall sports teams, which was terrific to see. I also appreciate all of the business owners and employees being receptive to the efforts of our student-athletes. There's lots of excitement around the 2014-15 school year, and we need everyone in the community to help us rise and soar."
