HUNTINGTON - The 28th annual Big Green Scholarship Foundation Dinner, presented by Pepsi and featuring Ohio State head football coach Jim Tressel, is now sold out, Marshall University athletic department officials announced today.

Tressel will serve as the event's featured speaker, which is scheduled for April 25 at 7 p.m. at the Cam Henderson Center.

"The Annual Scholarship Banquet is a significant fund raising event for the Big Green," said executive director Tom Miller. "Our history of securing well-recognized speakers has always enabled us to attract a large number of Marshall supporters."

Tressel served as Marshall head coach Mark Snyder's mentor throughout his rise in the college coaching ranks. Snyder was apart of Tressel's staffs at Youngstown State (1991-96) and at Ohio State (2001-04).
