Dickey to Speak to Touchdown Club of Atlanta

Thursday, October 28, 2010

University of West Georgia head football coach Daryl Dickey will be the guest speaker for the Touchdown Club of Atlanta lunch meeting on Monday, Nov. 1 at Fox Sports Grill.

Lunch will start at noon, and will be followed by presentations of the Touchdown Club of Atlanta’s back, lineman, coach, and team of the week. Then Coach Dickey will give an inside look at Wolves football.

Since assuming the UWG reins in December 2007, Dickey has worked diligently to bring a new mindset to the program. At the core of that attitude change was to recruit and develop players who would be, in Dickey’s words, “program players.” As a result of that commitment, Dickey mentored very young football teams in 2008 and 09. Yet, despite the lack of victories, the Wolves maintain the type of strong work ethic and positive attitude needed to turn the program in the right direction.

For 2010 Dickey has a team with added maturity, bolstered by another strong recruiting class and a retooled coaching staff. It is a combination that should not only continue the improvement on the program’s foundation, but garner positive results on the scoreboard, as well. The Wolves currently are 3-5 overall, and 2-4 in the Gulf South Conference.

After his first season at UWG, Dickey added a second formidable task to his menu of duties. He was named UWG’s athletic director, a position he still holds as he also coaches during the 2010 football season.

Tickets for the luncheon are available to the public for $20.00 (this includes lunch, drink, tax, and tip). For information on the Touchdown Club of Atlanta, contact Lee Baker at 678-472-3147.
