2015 College Football Coaches Tour

We recognize that freedom truly isn’t free and that less than THREE TENTHS OF ONE PERCENT of our population raise their hands to join the Armed Forces to protect the freedoms that all of us enjoy in the United States of America every day.


We have had enthusiastic responses from college football head coaches across the country. Exact dates, participants for each tour, and specific military bases to be visited are now being finalized.  We are tentatively scheduling each tour to begin on a Wednesday and end on a Saturday.


Each Tour location will include an "Arrival Lunch" with base personnel, a "Meet & Greet" with the visiting coaches, an autograph session, Press opportunity, and an athletic combines/flag football game. Following the games, participants will have a cookout and an after-dinner social gathering. Prior to departure the next day, the coaches will have breakfast with base personnel.


Jack Arute will emcee events and broadcast live on SiriusXM. We plan to include a nationally known sports writer in the travel party. We will provide videotape to participating schools and conferences, and to ABC, CBS, ESPN, NBC, and Fox.
