Murray State SID Dave Winder talks about the increased national exposure the Racers are getting thanks to the basketball team's 22-0 start. It's also made him a busier person, and he doesn't mind one bit.
Calloway County girls' basketball coach Scott Sivills joins us on the Saturday Morning Sports Report to talk about the Lady Lakers. The former Murray State basketball player also talks about the historic start of the Racers.
Cadiz resident and Tennessee Titans cheerleader Brooke Bailey will be the team’s cheerleading representative at the NFL Pro Bowl later this month in Hawaii. Bailey learned of the honor last month and said she was selected after a several-step process used by the Titans to select their Pro Bowl rep.
Bailey will leave for Hawaii January 23rd and joins cheerleaders from the other 31 NFL teams for a week of programs, practices, and personal appearances.
The Pro Bowl, football’s annual all-star game, will be played January 29th in Honolulu. Afterwards, Bailey and the other cheerleaders will depart Hawaii and head to Guam as part of a USO Tour to visit troops stationed on the Pacific Island.
Bailey, who is in her sixth season as a Titans cheerleader, said she always enjoys the events involving the military through the Titans partnership with Fort Campbell and says Guam will be no different.
Bailey lives in Cadiz and graduated from University Heights Academy. She also serves as a dance coach for the teams at Hopkinsville High and Middle School.
While no Titans were selected to the Pro Bowl, Bailey said she would have no trouble cheering for other AFC players, especially Patriots quarterback Tom Brady.
