Sept. 23, 2003

The Fighting Scots are rolling out the welcome mat at Honaker Field.

Maryville College Head Football Coach Tony Ierulli and Maryville College Athletic Director Randy Lambert have announced that select home football games will honor various members of the community with free admission.

  • The Sept. 27 game against the University of the South has been designated “Youth Sports Day.” Kickoff is scheduled for 1:30 p.m. Area high school football players, cheerleaders and members of the schools’ marching bands will get in free by wearing their team jerseys, cheerleading uniforms or band T-shirts. One adult accompanying the football player, cheerleader or band member will also get in free.
  • On Oct. 11, the Scots will take on Case Western Reserve University, and area students involved in the Boy Scouts of America or Girl Scouts of the U.S.A. programs will be honored during “Scout Day.” Kickoff is scheduled for 1 p.m. By wearing their scout uniform, these youths and their adult guest will receive free admission.
  • Men and women serving in the Armed Forces who show military I.D. at the gate will receive two free admission passes to all remaining home football games and home basketball games.

“ We are so thankful to be a part of a supportive and close-knit community that we wanted to offer local people an invitation to come and be our guest for one Saturday or several Saturdays, while also honoring their work to make all communities friendlier and safer places to live,” Ierulli said. “I look forward to hosting these special groups at Maryville College.”
