As the Eagles’ football team takes the field for their second scrimmage today — open to the public, with no charge — university officials are trying to present a game-day atmosphere for all of those involved.
As players and coaches participate in the scrimmage, which will begin at 10 a.m. and is expected to last two hours, the concession stand will be open and an area will be set up for those interested in purchasing season tickets.
Not only that, but the Waleska campus should be busy as the Reinhardt baseball team will host a doubleheader against ninth-ranked Tennessee Wesleyan College at 2 p.m.
Reinhardt sports information director Jason Hanes is hoping fans will come out for both of the athletic events.
“We are going to shoot the works (today),” Hanes said. “It’s a dry-run for a real game.”
The football team held a basic scrimmage a week ago, but according to coach Danny Cronic, they’ll be taking it up a notch for the final scrimmage.
“We are going to have ticket sales, a press box and rosters,” Cronic said. “We need to get some of our local Reinhardt people involved with it.
“We haven’t made a lot of publicity about it, but I’m hoping there will be a crowd. I think it will be a good time for people to come up and see what the team looks like.”
