GLIAC To Launch Football Website Wednesday

Big Rapids, Mich. - The Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (GLIAC) will unveil its 2010 preseason poll in conjunction with the launch of a special website on Wednesday (Aug. 18).

The 2010 GLIAC Football Media Day Website is expected to go live tomorrow and include information on the upcoming campaign with video comments from respective head coaches, video highlights of top returning players and links to team media guides and information in addition to the preseason poll.  The GLIAC Football media guide and record book will also be published to the site.

The special website takes the place of the annual GLIAC Football Media Day luncheon, which was not held this year. However, each head coach was present earlier this month for the conference's annual head coaches meeting and filmed a short video segment discussing their respective teams and the upcoming season.

The video interviews with the head coaches were conducted in the campus television studio at Saginaw Valley State University prior to the start of fall camp and each coach was interviewed by SVSU radio play-by-play announcer J.J. Boehm.

The website, which was created by Presto Sports, will be available live online thru the official conference website at

The 2010 GLIAC football season officially kicks off with five non-conference games on Thursday, Sept. 2.  Five other games will be contested on opening weekend, including Ferris State's non-league tilt at Hillsdale on Friday, Sept. 3. 

The league schedule begins the following week with all 14 schools in action on Saturday, Sept. 11.  The final week of GLIAC play will take place on Saturday, Nov. 13.
