MOREHEAD, Ky. -- More than 60 Morehead State football players and coaches will be visiting with hundreds of Rowan County residents on Saturday to create more buzz for the upcoming season.Â The Eagles will go door-to-door to hand out ticket brochures and pocket schedules for the 2013 campaign.
Morehead State's schedule includes seven home games and five road contests.Â The Eagles will be welcoming Pikeville (Aug. 29), Eastern Kentucky (Sept. 21), Davidson (Sept. 28), Dayton (Oct. 26), San Diego (Nov. 9), Butler (Nov. 16) and Charlotte (Nov. 23) to Jayne Stadium.
Season tickets are just $55 apiece, which is less than $8 per game.Â Single-game passes to the Eagle Rally Zone are $25 each for cars, SUVs and trucks, while season passes are $60 for the same vehicles.Â RVs and bus prices are $35 per game or $70 for all seven contests.
"Saturday should be a really enjoyable day," Head Coach Rob Tenyer said.Â "Our young men are excited about travelling throughout Rowan County and talking about Morehead State football.Â This grass-roots marketing effort will allow us to get to know our fans and vice versa."
Morehead State's returning players and 11 coaches will be broken up into eight groups for the event, which is scheduled to run from 2 to 4 p.m. ET.Â The Eagles plan to visit:
Several businesses and homes up and down Main Street in Morehead
Several neighborhoods just south of I-64, at the intersection of SR 32
Homes as far north as Hickory Pointe (near Flemingsburg Road and Hickory Drive)
Homes as far south as Lakeview Heights (near SR 60 and Freestone Road)
Homes as far east as Morehead Estates (near SR 60 and Rodburn Hollow Road)
Homes as far west as Eagle Trace Golf Course (north and west of I-64, using exit #133)
"Our fans are certainly the backbone of our program -- and we need them to pack Jayne Stadium for all seven of our home games this season," Tenyer added.Â "We talk about our three Cs and the community aspect is so important.Â We want all Eagle fans to be part of what we're doing."
Beginning this season, the Pioneer Football League champion will now have an automatic bid to the NCAA's Division I Football Championship.Â The expansion was recently approved when the NCAA's Board of Directors expanded the Football Championship Subdivision event to 24 teams.
