CENTER VALLEY, Pa. - The unofficial kickoff to the 2014 football season is fast approaching with Patriot League Football Media Day set for Wednesday at Green Pond Country Club in Bethlehem, Pa.

Coaches, student-athletes and media from around the League will come together just before preseason practices begin. All seven Patriot League Football head coaches will be in attendance, along with select student-athletes from the institutions. The League's preseason poll and offensive and defensive players of the year will all be announced during the Media Day, along with the preseason All-Patriot League Team.

While the event is restricted to media members, the Patriot League will be providing updates throughout the day through its Football Twitter account, @PatriotLeagueFB with #PLFB. The updates will begin at 9 a.m. with the release of the preseason honors, and continue with opening remarks.

During the media session, the staff from Patriot League Network will be interviewing all head coaches and student-athletes in attendance. Fans can send in their questions for the video interviews to the football twitter account, either by tweeting @PatriotLeagueFB or #PLFB, to be used in the segments with the following coaches and student-athletes.
