MILLSAPS ATHLETIC DEPARTMENT IS DRAWING NATIONAL ATTENTION FOR ITS FAN PROMOTIONS. 16 WAPT’S MICAH FLEET REPORTS HOW ONE MAN IS MAKING THE MAJORS A MUST- SEE. “THE MILLSAPS ATHLETIC DIRECTOR DRAWING NATIONAL ATTENTION FROM SPORTS ILLUSTRATED FOR DRAWING BIG CROWDS TO SMALL COLLEGE FOOTBALL.” TRYING TO GET FANS IN THE STANDS — A DIFFICULT BATTLE YOUNG FANS ?? — TWICE AS HARD. “THE NEWER GENERATIONS AREN’T USED TO JUST BEING ABLE TO SIT STILL IN THE SEAT AND NOT MOVE AROUND.” THAT’S THE STRUGGLE MILLSAPS A-D JOHN BROOKS FACES. “A LOT OF PEOPLE WANT TO STAY AT HOME, WATCH THE GAMES ON TV, WE’RE TRYING TO CAPTURE ALL THE THINGS THAT MAKE IT UNIQUE TO WATCH THE GAMES AT HOME AND CAPTURE THOSE THINGS.” SO WHAT’S HIS PLAN? COVER WITH PICTURES GIVEN “LAST YEAR WE DID A SLIP N SLIDE IN THE STUDENT SECTION AND THOUGHT THAT WAS FUN SO THIS YEAR WE WANTED TO DO SOMETHING FUN AND WE DID A FOAM PARTY IN THE STUDENT SECTION — FOUND OUT THAT THE LITTLE KIDS ACTUALLY LOVED IT MORE THAN THE COLLEGE.” “THIS ISN’T THE UNIVERSITY OF ALABAMA WHERE WE’VE GOT 90 THOUSAND SCREAMING FANS THAT ARE GONNA GO CRAZY IF SOMETHING DOESN’T WORK” AND BROOKS DOESN’T PLAN ON SLOWING DOWN AT ALL. “INSTEAD OF GOING TO A SAINTS GAME, OR SOMETHING ELSE THAT’S GOING TO COST A TON OF MONEY, HERE’S A LESS EXPENSIVE GREAT OPTION WHERE COLLEGE STUDENT ATHLETES ARE GIVING YOU THEIR BLOOD SWEAT AND TEARS AND YOU CAN COME AND BRING YOUR FAMILY AND ITS A SAFE ENVIRONMENT WHERE THEY’RE GONNA HAVE FUN THEY’RE GONNA GET TO WATCH GREAT COMPETITION.” SO, HOW FAR WOULD BROOKS GO TO SELL TICKETS? “IF IT MEANT GETTING MORE PEOPLE HERE I WOULD WRESTLE A BEAR,” NOW THAT’S SOMETHING I’D PAY TO SEE. AT MILLSAPS, MICAH FLEET, 16 WAPT NEWS. BROOKS SAYS TICKET SALES HAVE DOUBLED SINCE HIS PROMOTIONS STARTED.
