Jan 29, 2010
BANNER ELK, N.C. - The Lees-McRae College Athletic Department
has taken another step towards enhancing the school's new website
with the addition of YouTube videos and their own YouTube channel
called Lees-McRae College's Bobcat Sports Live. The channel will
be used for a variety of things: highlights and the schools own
YouTube sports show called a "Minute with Mac."
"The viral promotion of our coaches, teams, and student-athletes
helps us promote our athletic department to the fullest," Athletic
Director Craig McPhail said. "I am very pleased with this addition
to our website and look forward to watching it evolve more."
The first installment of a "A Minute with Mac" features McPhail
and Sports Information Director Kevin Young discussing the fall
season at Lees-McRae and other hot Lees-McRae athletics' news.
Lees-McRae will also use the YouTube channel for game highlights
and to give video tours of the Bobcat athletics facilities.
"With this capability, we are able to showcase Lees-McRae
College athletics in great light," McPhail said. "This gives us
the opportunity to reach homes globally with our product, this
generation of student-athletes lives in a computer world. With the
work of our Sports Information Director, Kevin Young, I believe
this is a way to enhance our department while giving everyone a
chance to see who we really are."
"A Minute with Mac" will feature a new topic/sport throughout
the remainder of the school year with videos on www.lmcbobcats.com
under the Athletic News tab and on YouTube.
