Red Wolves Coach Experience – What’s Your Dream Perk?


If you could win a perk from your favorite team, what would it be?

The three-time defending Sun Belt Conference champion Arkansas State football team is set to host its annual spring game Friday, April 18, at Centennial Bank Stadium, and while the game won’t officially begin until 7 p.m., there will be a number of pregame activities leading up to the on-field action that will include a unique “Coach Experience” opportunity for a Red Wolves’ fan.  With A-State’s spring roster divided into two teams, the promotion’s winner will have the chance to act as a head coach for one of the squads. 

The head coach will give the pregame and halftime talk to their team, determine if their team ‘goes for it’ or punts on fourth down, make play-calling decisions and communicate with the coaching staff on headset throughout the entire game.  The coach will receive photos of their experience and coaching gear.  The winning coach will also receive a Powerade bath as part of their bragging rights.
