BREVARD COLLEGE ATHLETICS TO HOST ANNUAL "PIGSKIN PIG-OUT" ON AUGUST 15

Brevard, NC- On Friday, August 15, the Brevard College athletics department in collaboration with Aramark will be hosting its annual “Pigskin Pig-out Party” at 6:30 p.m. in the newly renovated Boshamer Gymnasium on the campus of Brevard College.

The Pigskin Pig-out is a great chance for fans of all ages to not only meet the Tornado football players and coaches, but to meet all of the fall sport athletic teams including volleyball and men’s and women’s soccer.

You can also come out and enjoy a great meal of barbeque, black bean hamburgers, baked beans, slaw and a variety of sweet desserts.

The Tornados fall sports kickoff party will be full of entertainment as there will be bluegrass singing and music along with a well recognized guest speaker. This year’s guest speaker for the event is Head Football Coach Paul Hamilton.

“We are fortunate to have one of the finest coaches in college football leading our program, and rather than bring in a big name speaker we felt that members of our community, parents of our student-athletes, and our devoted fans would enjoy the opportunity to get to know Coach Hamilton on more of personal basis,” commented Brevard College Athletics Director Kim Pate.

Coach Paul Hamilton is in his second year at the helm of the Tornados, bringing with him 26 years of coaching experience at both the Division I and Division II levels, with ten of those years as head coach.

In his first year at Brevard last season, Coach Hamilton made huge strides in constructing the Brevard College Football program from the ground up.  In only their second year of existence, the Tornados finished 2-9 on the year, playing a full South Atlantic Conference slate along the way.  The Tornados improved on a regular basis throughout the season, as BC scored in every contest, a huge upgrade from the 2006 season in which the Tornados were shut out four times.

In 2007, the Tornados improved in every statistical category as they competed as provisional members of both the NCAA Division II level and of the very strong South Atlantic Conference which had four different teams ranked throughout the season.

Tickets for the Pigskin Pig-Out can be purchased at the event or by calling 828-884-8276. The cost is $15 for adults and $5 for students.
