The MountAthletics.com staff is expected to announce the launch of its official YouTube channel today. Videos have been available for days featuring an interview with new women's lacrosse head coach Lindsey Munday, as well as player profiles with all the men's and women's soccer teams. One of the most recent interviews is with women's soccer head coach Tom Gosselin after last night's draw with George Mason. With updates like this being put up immediately after games, this site will be the place to go for up-to-the-minute videos. Eventually each student-athlete will have their own intro page. I would have loved to have had my own intro video last year! Why couldn't they unveil this one year sooner??
Regardless of my selfish desires, this is another great idea and addition to the MountAthletics.com resources. Also be sure to check out and "Like" its Facebook page.
Update 12:09 p.m.:
Here is the link to the full release, which is pasted below.
