The Macon Mayhem of the Southern Professional Hockey League (SPHL) announced the format for this season’s weekly coaches show featuring head coach Kevin Kerr and Mayhem players. Beginning December 23rd, the virtual forum will air through Facebook Live on the Mayhem’s team page each Wednesday evening at 7 PM ET.
Mayhem Director of Communications Dana Barker will be the host for the show this season. Barker has previously been a show host in the SPHL as he anchored the now-defunct Columbus Cottonmouths coach’s show from 2004 to 2006. He also hosted the SPHL Weekly podcast in 2011-12, the only leaguewide show to air on a weekly basis in the history of the SPHL.
“I’m excited to get back to hosting a show like this,” said Barker. “It’s always fun to talk X’s and O’s with the coach. Kerrsy has a wealth of knowledge on the game, and I can’t wait to pick his brain and talk shop about the season. I’m also stoked to get more in-depth with the players. I love uncovering things a scoresheet doesn’t show, getting to know the story of what got the players into hockey and what they enjoy doing off the ice. This won’t be your typical coach’s show. I can’t wait to get started.”
Fans are encouraged to submit questions during each show that will be answered during the broadcast. The 12/23 episode will feature an update on the Mayhem training camp and a preview of the season opener as the team heads to Huntsville, AL to face the Havoc on Monday night.
The Mayhem kick off their home schedule in less than two short weeks on Saturday, January 2 as they host the Birmingham Bulls! Puck drop is scheduled for 6:35 PM EST. Tickets and other sponsorship opportunities are available. To become a part of all the excitement, contact the Mayhem at 478.803.1592!
