East Central Community College will host “Media Day” activities for the Warrior football team on Saturday, August 17, 2013. Activities are scheduled from 9 a.m. to noon at Bailey Stadium on the Decatur campus.

A preview of this year’s squad will be available Friday, August 16 when the Warriors and Belhaven University’s Blazers scrimmage at 4:30 p.m. on the Belhaven campus in Jackson.
