FAYETTEVILLE—Fayette County High School hosted the county’s first media day for high school football on Aug. 4. They were joined by five other high schools, which included McIntosh, Our Lady of Mercy, Sandy Creek, Starr’s Mill and Whitewater.
Each school was accompanied by its head coach and three players, who took turns taking questions from the media.
Reginald Booker, the offensive coordinator for Fayette County High School, approached his head coach, Mike Davis, about the idea for a media day.
“I noticed other counties had a media day for football,” said Booker. “They’ve even had one for basketball in our county.” He said all the coaches embraced the idea and in two weeks they pulled the event together.
The event was sponsored by sports and fitness training company, All In Performance, and Big Frog Custom T-Shirts and More.
