Brian and Katie Williams, of Murfreesboro, and Allan and Nita Michie, of Spring Hill, were randomly chosen after they renewed their tickets for 2013 to win a behind-the-scenes tour of the team’s facility during the NFL Draft.
The Williams and Michie families were able to visit the locker room, stop by Warmack’s photo shoot with team photographer Donn Jones and attend Warmack’s introductory press conference where they heard Titans general manager Ruston Webster and coach Mike Munchak talk about the selection of Warmack. They also learned about Warmack’s experience with the NFL Draft and laughed at the guard’s jokes.
“I’ve always been interested in the draft, and it was interesting to see how it happens,” Brian Williams said. “(Warmack) was a lot funnier than I thought he would be. I know those guys are having a good time. That’s a great guy to have on your team, with the championships and experience. I know I was excited.”
The Michie family attended the draft party the team hosted for season ticket holders Thursday night at LP Field, and were excited when Warmack was available at the 10th spot.
“I was sweating that Jets pick (one spot ahead of Tennessee),” said Allan Michie, adding that Friday’s tour was “absolutely awesome.”
“We have been to training camp practices but had never been in the facility, and this was really exciting,” Michie said. “We’ve toured the stadium and been in that locker room, but this is the one (the players spend more time in). (Warmack) seems just like a regular guy.”
Brian Williams added, “He seems real comfortable and he’s got some big hands.”
The Michie family and Brian Williams also spotted themselves in a large photo of LP Field that is on the back wall of the auditorium. The Williams family has had their season tickets since 1999, the franchise’s first year as the Tennessee Titans, and the Michie family has had tickets since the team moved from Houston to Tennessee in 1997.
