The 1st ever IE Preps Magazine Coach’s Media Day was a huge success! Held on Saturday June 4th, 2016, the event was attended by nearly 30 area coaches and their respective team captains. There were also a bevy of players that attended the media day on their own as invites to the event. Inland Empire players who have received national attention such as Stephen Carr of Summit High, Jaelan Phillips of Redlands East Valley High, and Kyle Gibbs of Norco High were in attendance. The day also featured interviews and photoshoots with the I.E.’s best high school cheer programs with Great Oak, Centennial, Norco, and Oak Hills Cheer teams.
The coaches in attendance got a chance to sit through an engaging Q & A session about their upcoming season, players, and thoughts on hot topics related to high school football. All teams present also participated in a fun photoshoot and video session. Media from this event will be aired throughout the summer going into the season. IE Preps Magazine also used the event to prepare for their big Pre-Season High School football issue that comes out in July.
What was a first of its kind in the Inland Empire has set the tone for what will undoubtably be a bigger and better event next year in 2017. Special thanks to all of the coaches, players, parents, and IE Sports Net for making time to come out to this event.
