WESTMINSTER, Md. – The 2013 fall athletics schedule will get under way on Friday with a home men’s soccer game against Southern Vermont at 4 p.m. Before that game, though, fans of McDaniel athletics will have a unique preview opportunity.
The athletics department will present an inaugural season preview show. Hosted by Director of Sports Information Luke Stillson, a live video stream will be presented on Wednesday night at 9 p.m. on mcdanielathletics.com that will preview all seven of the Green Terror’s fall sports.
The show will feature athletes from each team who will participate in a roundtable discussion of the upcoming fall sports season. The representatives will share with viewers their experiences from preseason training camp and expectations for the upcoming season. There will be a dialogue among the athletes on the panel, moderated by Stillson.
Fans will also have an opportunity during the approximately 30-minute live show to interact with the event and ask questions of the athletes via Twitter. Fans can submit questions to the official McDaniel Athletics Twitter account @mcdanielsports and/or use the hashtag, #GTfallpreview.
