Ryburn Automotive Superstore will play host to the University of Arkansas at Monticello Athletics Media Day this Friday, August 23 from 2-5 p.m. on the dealership grounds on Highway 425 in Monticello.

Coaches and student-athletes from all of UAM’s intercollegiate athletics teams, as well as cheerleaders and the Boll Weevil mascot will participate in Friday’s media day, which is open to the public. Members of the media and fans are encouraged to stop by the dealership to visit with representatives of the UAM department of athletics about the upcoming sport seasons. Picture opportunities will be available and there will be giveaways.

The event will be broadcast live on the UAM Sports Network at KHBM-FM 93.7 in Monticello and online at uamsports.com. Head football coach Hud Jackson will take the stage first at 2 p.m. followed by the rest of the UAM coaches and select student-athletes.

“We are excited about hosting this year’s media day, and we have always been a long-time supporter of UAM and the Monticello community,” said Ryburn Motor Company General Manager Ronny Williams.

“Ryburn Automotive has always been a great supporter of not only our athletics teams, but to this university as a whole,” said UAM Athletics Director Chris Ratcliff. “We are excited about Friday’s event, and can’t wait to be able to interact with this great community.”
