Georgia coaches to visit Tifton

July 8, 2004

Tifton-- The Tiftarea YMCA is inviting you to a good old fashioned South Georgia Pig Pickin. Next Tuesday night the Tiftarea YMCA will host an athletic fellowship with Georgia coaches Mark Richt and Dave Van Halanger as special guest speakers.

The event is free to all coaches and athletes and will also include former Tift County stars Stan Shiver and Todd Fordham, who now plays for the Pittsburgh Steelers. Event organizers say they hope people who turn out Tuesday not only get a chance to meet the coaches, but more importantly understand their message.

"This is an opportunity for us to fulfill the mission of the YMCA and that is to put Christian principles into practice. We want athletes we want people in the community to come to the YMCA to hear the testimony of coach Richt and coach Van Halanger and hopefully plant a seed," Tiftarea YMCA CEO Kevin Angell said.

"We're gonna cook ten hogs and the main thing we want to do is invite all athletes in the area. It will have a football flavor but we're inviting all athletes," Roy McWilliams said. The fellowship runs from 5pm to 8pm next Tuesday July 13th at the Tiftarea YMCA.
