HONORARY CAPTAIN- Joining the Nashville Storm captains for the game’s opening coin toss will be MIKE ORGAN, the longtime sports reporter for THE TENNESSEAN. Most Nashvillians are highly familiar with Mike’s 25 years of superb sports reporting at Nashville’s largest daily newspaper, but they may not realize that Mike is himself a superb football player, best known for his superb play for the former Tennessee Generals, where he was a teammate of current Nashville Storm coaches Shawn Malone and Chauncey Smiley and WKRN-Channel 2’s “Big Joe” Dubin. Mike Organ is a native Nashvillian and a graduate of DuPont High School and MTSU.
PROMOTIONS- The first 100 fans to come through the admissions gate will receive a free football-shaped air horn. At Nashville Storm games we believe in making noise, and these horns may be the loudest noisemaker ever made--- they can be used at any sporting event. In addition, hold on to your ticket stub. As part of our “Nashville Storm Stimulus Package”, several of our sponsors will be giving away goods and services in our halftime and 4th-quarter drawings.
