Four years later, Wiegers was a senior at the University of Iowa, graduating with a degree in human physiology and looking for a place to continue his football career. When Tyler Wiegers was a four-star recruit as a quarterback at Detroit Country Day High in Lake Orion, Michigan, he entertained offers from several Midwest schools, including Eastern Michigan.
“Back then, nobody wanted to go there, but Coach (Chris) Creighton did a great job turning it around,” Wiegers said.
Montgomery Mayor Todd Strange announced the Camellia Bowl and ESPN have agreed to extend their partnership through 2025. The city is in it’s fifth year of a six-year agreement with ESPN. They negotiated early to extend the contract for six years, Strange said.
Raycom Media, WSFA 12 News’ parent company, has been the sponsor since the first Camellia Bowl in 2014. The mayor said if Raycom doesn’t renew the sponsorship, the city will look for a new sponsor. The mayor said thousands of Georgia Southern and Eastern Michigan fans are traveling to Montgomery this week for Saturday’s game at Cramton Bowl, which will be televised on ESPN at 4:30 p.m.
“The real beauty of this game is the exposure that Montgomery gets to the national marketing – to the international markets – being televised at that timeslot on ESPN. We are excited about that – we’re appreciative of it,” Strange said.
