The Amherst College Sports Information Department is pleased to announce a special DVD documentary project honoring the undefeated season of the 2009 Lord Jeff football team. Through the efforts of Amherst Athletics, the Office of Public Affairs and videographer Marcus DeMaio, Amherst Football: A Season to Remember will be available for purchase exclusively through an online ordering process. All proceeds from this project will benefit the JeffCast online video webcasting movement.

The brainchild of Sports Information Director Alex Kantor, A Season to Remember takes a look back at the 2009 season through a series of interviews with this year’s seniors, captains and coaches. The documentary provides a glimpse into the team’s off-season motivation and walks fans through some of the biggest plays from the 124th meeting between Amherst and Williams.

Available for a purchase price of $25.00 (plus $3.00 shipping and handling), A Season to Remember is packaged in a beautifully-crafted full-color box set and features some of the most memorable images from Amherst’s championship season. Fans will receive the documentary project and a copy of NESN’s 2009 broadcast of the “Biggest Little Game in America” on a single DVD disk. A pre-order period has been opened, with shipping beginning January 11, 2010.

Proceeds from this project will be used for an upgrade to both the capabilities and quality of JeffCast – Amherst’s in-house, video webcasting effort. JeffCast debuted last winter and was expanded this fall with numerous soccer, field hockey and volleyball games, as well as each home football contest. Those who would like to make a donation to this effort beyond the purchase of this special DVD should visit the Friends of Amherst Athletics online contribution page and comment that they would like their gift to benefit JeffCast.
