The Holy Cross athletic media relations office provides services to all members of the media in their coverage of Crusader Athletics. Information to assist the media is provided below. Any media member who has additional questions or needs further assistance should contact the media relations office at (508) 793-2583.
Credentials & Scouting Passes
Passes are required for all football, men's and women's basketball and men's ice hockey games. All requests for working media credentials should be made to the media relations office at least one week in advance, preferably in writing. All requests received one week in advance will be mailed, while all others will be left at the will call window. Every effort will be made to accommodate all members of the media, but as space is limited, we may not be able to honor all requests.
At football, basketball and ice hockey games, Holy Cross has installed phone lines which can be rented by visiting radio. There is a charge of $75.00 per line for commercial radio, or $50.00 per line for student radio. Others wishing to install their own lines may contact Verizon Telephone at (508) 792-4000. Any radio station or reporting service seeking in-game or post-game reports must make arrangements through the athletic media relations office.
For football games, accredited media will be given passes allowing access to the lot just south of Fitton Field, the baseball field and the adjacent fields. For events at the Hart Center, parking is on a first-come, first-served basis. The parking lots in front of the Hart Center are ordinarily able to handle all your parking needs. Please note that there is no specific area for press parking at any athletic event, and any member of the media not arriving at least one hour before game time is not guaranteed parking space.
Game Day Services
At football, men's and women's basketball and men's ice hockey games, pre-game press notes, roster cards and programs are available to the media approximately one hour before game time. A light meal is also provided for the media at football and basketball games. Fax service is available after the game with advanced notice to the athletic media relations staff. Final statistics / box scores will be available following the game.
All Holy Cross locker rooms are closed to the media. Members of the media should submit player requests to a member of the media relations staff with five minutes remaining in the contest. Following a 10-minute cooling off period, requested coaches and players will be available. Requests for interviews with the visiting team should be made with that school's sports information director.
Coach & Player Interviews
Personal interviews with Holy Cross coaches and athletes can be arranged through the media relations office. Players are normally available in person and for phone interviews on non-game days, subject to the individual student-athlete's academic responsibilities. Arrangements for all interviews should be made at least 24 hours in advance. Home phone numbers will not be given out.
Football Media Luncheon
Head football coach Tom Gilmore will have a weekly luncheon with the media each Tuesday during the season at 12:00 p.m. During the luncheon, we will make every effort to have the head coach of Holy Cross' opponent for that week's game available via speaker phone. In addition, at least one student-athlete will be available for interviews near the end of the luncheon. All members of the working media are welcome to attend. For more information, contact the athletic media relations office.
For information about covering a game, getting statistics or setting up an interview for any Crusader Athletic team, please contact the appropriate member of the athletic media relations staff.
