NASHVILLE, Tenn. — The Tennessee Titans partnered with local high school football teams to host the inaugural Tennessee Titans High School Media Day on Friday at Nissan Stadium.
The event drew 27 Middle Tennessee high school football teams and 12 media outlets, including all four television affiliates, The Associated Press, The Tennessean, and more.
"I'm glad that we came, if for no other reason than gaining some exposure for our program, and it also gave these players a chance to do something they've never done before," East Robertson Head Coach Chad Broadrick told The Tennessean. "Getting our guys exposure is the most important thing right now."
The Tennessee Titans High School Media Day provides a stage for local football players to gain exposure to the media, placing high school football in the spotlight with the season beginning in less than a month.
"I think the essential thing for us is to provide an opportunity for high school players to interact with the media,'' Titans Youth and High School Football Coordinator Josh Corey said. "So when I ask high school coaches, 'What can the Tennessee Titans do to help your program?' the overpowering answer is learning opportunities and access on all levels. We feel that the high school media day is something that we can do each year to benefit the local high school programs and their players.
At the event, each player and coach received a field and locker room tour, in addition to a bag filled with Titans gear.
