Ball State Sports Link, the nation’s first digital sports production program, in partnership with Ball State Football, premieres Episode #1 of its new 3rd Down Chirp: Earn It Today.
The new series documents the 2015 Ball State Football team beginning with team workouts in July throughout season, with complete access granted by head Coach Pete Lembo for the Sports Link cameras.
“One of the things I’ve always enjoyed about Sports Link is the coverage we get.” Lembo said. “It makes our student athletes feel like they are in a big, big-time program. It’s rewarding for our players to get opportunity to be part of this. It’s great for our fan base to see what’s going on on gameday. Sports Link has become a great part of Ball State and obviously great students are coming here now to study and be part of it.”
