Preseason training camp: For Bobcats, it's about surviving 'the test of time'

By JOE VOZZELLI

Throughout the almost daily grind of fall camp, it’s not all that surprising to see lapses in physical play.

Texas State head coach Dennis Franchione realizes that’s inevitable — although that doesn’t mean he’s going to let those lulls go unnoticed whenever they happen.

More often than not, however, what the veteran head coach watches for is: Who’s going to survive what he calls “the test of time”?

During his playing days, Ashley Ambrose was always told he would be a good coach one day.

Featured Story: Too good to pass up for this Texas duo

Phil Bowden was admittedly a little hesitant when Chris Issendorf originally asked him to do the Missouri MR340 river race with him.

College Soccer: Former Bobcat named assistant at Abilene Christian

From Staff Reports

ABILENE — Former Bobcat soccer standout and record holder Tori Hale has been named an assistant coach for the Abilene Christian women’s soccer team.

Hale, an Abilene native, spent three seasons under the direction of Texas State head coach Kat Conner.

“This is a big opportunity and I’m excited to be part of a program that’s rapidly growing the way it is,” Hale said. “I’m thankful I get to continue working in the soccer world because I wasn’t ready to leave it just yet.”

Outdoors: When tragedy struck the Midwest

As I wrote last week in my column, weather is the number one killer of outdoorsmen.

On November 11, 1940, the worst duck hunting disaster in American history happened. It is known as the Armistice Day Blizzard.

The weather that fall for Midwestern duck hunters had been warm and uneventful. No strong cold fronts had pushed the ducks into their migration patterns from northern regions. But unbeknownst to these hunters, the perfect storm was brewing.
