Media day at BC
By Lande Simpson
Many people around school may wonder
how student-athletes get the perfect pictures for
social media and the posters aroimd town. In this
article you can get the perfect insider look on
just how media day works.
What is “media day” exactly? Media day
is when collegiate teams take individual
headshots, team pictures and action shots for
their school’s social media page, website or for
the school’s sports team poster announcing a
certain team’s schedule.
For many student-athletes, especially
freshmen, media day is a big deal. It allows
team members to bond over putting on the
newest shoes and jerseys that the team has just
received for the season and to document the
season’s team. For freshmen, it is a chance to
see that the struggle of preseason is over and that
it is almost time to go out and finally compete.

During media day, there are multiple stations. Headshots,
team pictures, class pictures, action shots and a video
introducing yourself, your position, class and a message
For headshots, it’s kind of like a portrait you would take
for the yearbook in elementary, middle or high school but
for the school’s athletic website.
Team pictures and class pictures were taken outside
of the Porter Center. Team pictures are pretty self
explanatory. The team adjusts themselves in a way where
everyone is visible and one coach is on the side to the left
and the other is on the side to the right. Class pictures are
a great way to keep memories and to watch how players
age each season. It is fun to compare class pictures from
freshman season to senior season.
Action shots are pictures of individual players doing
actions that they would typically do during a game. For
example, if you’re a volleyball player, you may act like
you’re setting, passing, digging or hitting.
Media day is a great way to kick off or end a team’s
