Maryville College Football will be hosting the 2009 East Tennessee 7 on 7 Perimeter Passing Day on Saturday, July 18th. Games will begin at ten o’clock in the morning and conclude by six o’clock in the afternoon. The event has been organized in memory of Cody Bowers, a Maryville College football coach and alumnus who died tragically in the fall of 2007. Thirty-one schools have committed to the event which matches teams up into pools and allows each to practice their passing game for the upcoming season. Schools participating include:
North Murray (GA)
King’s Academy Sequoyah
Grace Christian Academy
Admission for the event is $4.00 and concessions will be sold. Proceeds for the event will benefit the Maryville College football program.
The East Tennessee 7 on 7 Perimeter Passing Day began at Lenoir City High School in the summer of 2007. Organized by former Scots football players Nick White (1998) and Brian Gossett (2000), the event was moved to Maryville College in the summer of 2008 and dedicated to the memory of Cody Bowers. Current and former Maryville College football players and other MC alumni serve as volunteers for the event. The passing day is an opportunity for schools to practice their passing game without a tournament format.... read the rest of the story by Subscribing now.
