PORTLAND, Ore. - UP seniors Jake Easterly and Ashley Williams will take the center stage this week as the Golf Channel will feature the Pilot golfers and the UP campus on its College Central show. The show will air fives times, beginning with a 3:30 p.m. showing on Wednesday, Oct. 18.

Re-runs of the show can be seen on Thursday at 12:30 p.m. and on Friday at 12:00 a.m., 1:30 a.m. and 5:30 a.m. The Golf Channel is cable channel 33 on most Portland area cable outlets.

Representatives and a t.v. crew from the network spent a day last month with Easterly and Williams on the UP campus. The crew interviewed the pair, followed them around campus and visited Pumpkin Ridge Golf Course.

College Central is a weekly show that features interviews, highlights, statistics and issues from collegiate golf. The program is hosted by Megan West and Steve Burkowski.
