Football Media Day next week
Media and fans alike are invited to meet key members of the Jacksonville University football team when the Dolphins play host to Media Day on Aug. 16.

Coach Kerwin Bell, Walter Payton Award candidate quarterback Josh McGregor, record-setting wide receiver Josh Philpart and a pair of defensive stars will be available for interviews as will Alan Verlander, director of athletics.

The event will be held at the Crowne Plaza, 1201 Riverplace Blvd., in Jacksonville (South Bank).

The Dolphins are coming off the team’s best season in history when they went 10-1 overall and 8-0 in the Pioneer Football Conference and shared the conference championship with Dayton. JU again is among the favorites for this year’s conference title.

Fans and the public are invited to the Media Day festivities which begin at noon and can buy lunch for $5. The meal will be served by Bono’s Barbeque.
