HPHY Staff selected for Guest Coach Program

Congratulations to Jen Strong who was nominated by the Registrar staff to get a behind the scenes look at this Saturday’s football game vs. Utah.

The Guest Coach Program, a project of Support Services for Student Athletes & Athletics, has been bringing together faculty, staff & athletes together for over 30 years. A unique way to get a different perspective as to what student athletes experience on game day.

Recipients who are selected get to attend a pre-game meal with the team, receive a tour of athletic facilities, attend the team meeting, watch the game from the sidelines, hang out at a special tailgater and also attend the post game press conference and reception.

WOW! Congrats Jen! Look for her on the sidelines this Saturday!
