2012-06-14: Mark Speir – WCU Head Football Coach

June 14th, 2012 by Scott Baker

New WCU Head Football Coach, Mark Speir, (right in picture) spoke to members of the Sylva Rotary Club recently.  Speir, who was hired in December, said that he and his coaching staff have visited 568 high schools in NC, SC and GA spreading the word about Western Carolina football and recruiting fast, high quality players.  He is optimistic about the upcoming season, saying “The major thing this community can do to support our new football program at Western Carolina is to show your support on game days.  In addition to actually coming out and cheering on the team, we hope businesses and individuals will put up flags, banners, stickers and posters.  Paint the town purple, and let the opposing visitors know as they drive through Jackson County: Today is not going to be a good day for you!”  Pictured with Speir is Sylva Rotary Club president, Ruddy Kaye (left).
