Hello Aztec fans!
I hope you are all having a great week! I also hope you were able to see us defeat Army on Saturday, 42-7.
Saturday was fun, but we have already moved on to North Dakota. Although they are a Division 1-AA or FCS team, we can not afford to look past them. This season, several Division 1 or FBS teams have already lost to Division 1-AA teams, and we do not want to find ourselves on that list.
A new week also means a new set of stories on AztecsForLife.com.
On Wednesday, I will publish a story on Dr. SaBrina White, an academic advisor who has helped countless football players and other student-athletes en route to receiving their diplomas.
On Thursday, I will publish a story on two former Aztec football players who are now coaches. Offensive line coach Mike Schmidt and strength and conditioning coach Adam Hall will be highlighted in this week’s Throwback Thursday.
This will be the first in a three-week series showcasing players-turned-coaches. Next week, I will post a story on quarterbacks coach Brian Sipe. The following week, I will highlight former players and current graduate assistants Doug Deakin and Lynell Hamilton.
To finish the week, senior tight end DJ Shields will be the subject for Feature Friday.
