Don’t miss Sumter Item High School Football Media Day on Wednesday
On Wednesday, Sumter Item is hosting the return of Media Day, a live stream and social event celebrating high school football in Sumter, Clarendon and Lee counties.
Presented by Hines Furniture, public and private schools will each be featured in their own timeslot between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. Wednesday, with the program’s head coach and two players seated for an interview with The Item athletic staff, the editor Tim Leible and reporter Isaiah. Lucas.
Interviews will be streamed live on The Sumter Item’s Facebook page, and those wishing to see a school in person can come to the event at USC Sumter’s Arts and Humanities Building. There is no admission to attend or watch.
The event will mark the second time The Item has held a media day, with the first taking place in 2019 before the pandemic.
Also during the event, just before the Laurence Manning Academy football program is introduced, Hines Furniture Athlete of the Year winner, LMA basketball player Jaden Sanders, will be honored.
Stay tuned throughout the event for a special surprise announcement from The Item about an exciting new Community Event coming up.
Sumter Item Media Day 2022 is also presented by Dental Team of Sumter, Mary Ann’s Deli, Simpson Hardware and Sporting Goods, McLaughlin Ford, Kona Ice of Sumter and McLeod Health.
