Pirate fans wanting an inside look at Pirate Football need to pick up a copy of “Mixer” magazine, a product of Greenville’s Daily Reflector. The ECU Football Preview Issue of the magazine earlier this month features our very own Pirate football players Isaiah “Zay” Jones and Zeek Bigger.
According to Bigger, the people in charge of the magazine called up he and Jones to see if they would be interested in doing a photo shoot for the cover. Of course they both agreed! Wouldn’t you?
Jones said he really enjoyed shooting the cover, saying it was something he had never done before and working a long side fellow teammate made the experience that much more enjoyable. “It was fun! Zeek is a funny guy so we had a good time”, Jones said.
I actually first saw the picture of the cover on Zeek’s Instagram. He said at the time he posted it he hadn’t even seen the actual magazine himself. All he had was that picture.
Zeek also said it was his first time ever doing something like that and it was a really great experience to put on that uniform and pose!
Of course, for both of these Pirates having the opportunity to strut their stuff on the field at Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium had them both feeling some type of way about themselves.
For the community of Greenville this is big and has got even more Pirate fans pumped for this upcoming season!
