Extras Needed for Filming of “23 Blast” Movie; Thursday is UC Night

“23 Blast” is the true story of Travis Freeman, a local football player from Corbin, Kentucky who lost his sight at the age of 12. At age 9, Travis began his football career as the water boy for the Corbin Redhounds High School team. At the age of 17, Freeman made his first start as the Redhounds center. Now, the remarkable journey of this young man is being made into a full-length feature film.

On Thursday, April 12th, “University of the Cumberlands Night” will be held at Campbell Field in Corbin. The makers of the movie are asking that UC students gather up your friends as they need extras for the filming of this great movie. If you are interested in becoming an extra, send an email with "April 12th" as the subject to 23blastextras@gmail.com. Please include your name and cell phone number and someone will contact you to confirm the start time of filming for the night. The movie crew is in need of at least 100 UC students for this opportunity.

Also, on Saturday April 14th, they request that you join “23 Blast” for the BIG football night featuring the Kentucky Bulldogs with meet and greets from cast members Max Adler (Glee) and Mark Hapka (Days of Our Lives) and a chance to win some great prizes.
