Holmes Convocation Center

Kidd Brewer Stadium

Appalachian indoor track & field enters its seventh season in the George M. Holmes Convocation Center. The Holmes Center serves as home of Mountaineer indoor track and field, as well as Appalachian’s men’s and women’s basketball and volleyball programs. The facility houses a 300m directional mondo surface. Standing on Rivers Street at Appalachian State University, the 200,840-square foot Holmes Center serves as the cornerstone to the entry to campus Holmes Center Track and houses ASU’s Department of Health, Leisure and Exercise Science. The structure also includes the 8,325-seat Seby Jones Arena, which hosts a number of community and cultural events in addition to Appalachian athletics, including graduation and convocation ceremonies, trade shows and concerts. The facility opened on November 17, 2000 with a celebration followed by a men’s basketball contest between Appalachian and the University of North Carolina. With much anticipation, every seat for Indoor Holmes Center Setup the ASU-UNC showdown was sold in advance, marking the first pre-gameday sellout in school history for any sporting event. The athletics ticket office sold the full allotment of tickets for the inaugural contest at the Holmes Center in just 12 minutes. Public service, a cornerstone upon which Appalachian was founded, is the hallmark of the two individuals whom names adorn the university’s convocation center, as former ASU Chancellor, Francis T. Borkowski announced that the center would be called the George M. Holmes Convocation Center and its arena the Seby Jones Arena on March 20, 1999. Holmes is a Republican member of the North Carolina House of Representatives, representing the 41st District (Yadkin, Wilkes and Alexander Counties). He is the senior co-chair of the North Carolina House of Appropriations Committee. A native of Mount Airy, N.C., Holmes attended Appalachian on a football scholarshipin the 1950’s. Holmes first entered political office from 1975-76 and has served 11 terms since 1979. He serves on the Governor’s Advisory Budget Commission, the Joint Legislative Commission on Governmental Operations and the Joint Legislative Transportation Oversight Committee. Holmes was instrumental in securing the bulk of the $36.8 million needed to build the convocation center. Jones served as mayor and a council member of Raleigh from 1967-71. He also served on ASU’s Board of Trustees for eight years, chairing the Board in 1990-91.

Facilities

Appalachian State

The outdoor home of the Appalachian track and field team, Kidd Brewer Stadium stands 3,333 feet above sea level and seats 16,650. Also home to the football and field hockey teams, it was the first facility in either North or South Carolina to install artificial turf, with Appalachian and Elon staging the first football game on fake grass in the Carolinas, Oct. 3, 1970. Opened Sept. 15, 1962, the stadium was originally constructed with 10,000 permanent seats. Seating capacity was expanded to 18,000 following the 1978 season. Completion of an extensive renovation and restoration project on the original 10,000 seats in 1995 readjusted the seating capacity to 16,650. A multi-purpose facility, Kidd Brewer Stadium is also home to intramural sports, while classes and the community use the facility, as well. Owens Field House, at the north end of the stadium, houses athletic and fundraising offices, locker rooms and equipment areas, along with the Dr. Hugh S. Daniel Conference Room. In 1989, a new building was added adjacent to the field house, with athletic and coaching offices, the Dr. Evan Ashby Sports Medicine Room, strength and conditioning areas, and locker rooms. The stadium is also in the midst of renovations to add a new athletic complex, slated to be completed by the fall of 2009. An addition of 4,000 seats on the east side was completed in the summer of 2008. The stadium is named after Kidd Brewer, one of the Mountaineers’ most successful head football coaches, and a colorful part of North Carolina history. Brewer, a Winston-Salem, N.C., native, served as football coach of the Mountaineers for four seasons (1935-38), compiling a 30-5-3 overall mark. An all-American backfield star at Duke University, Brewer’s 1937 Appalachian squad was unbeaten and unscored upon in the regular season. After leaving Appalachian, Brewer started a sales career, but shortly thereafter reported for active duty in World War II. He served as a Naval lieutenant in the Pacific. After the war Brewer was secretary to U.S. Sen. Josiah W. Bailey (D-N.C.). Upon Bailey’s death in office Brewer served his replacement, Sen. William B. Umstead, as administrative assistant. Brewer returned to North Carolina and ran for lieutenant governor in 1956. Between campaigns for governor (1964) and state court of appeals (1968), he made a name for himself as a developer, insurance salesman and philanthropist. Kidd Brewer Stadium, dedicated Sept. 3, 1988, was named Conrad Stadium from 1962 to 1988 for William J. Conrad, a former Appalachian State University trustee and R.J. Reynolds executive.

During both the indoor and outdoor seasons, the track and field teams are able to escape the elements with an expansive practice facility in Varsity Gym. A new Mondo track surface was added in 2007 with a length of over 100 meters. Along with the track surface, the facility houses a shot put and weight throwing area, pole vault and high jump facilities, a full weight-lifting area and athletic training facilities. Varsity Gym’s floor also received a facelift in 2008, as a new hardwood surface was installed. The arena is the practice home for wrestling, men’s and women’s basketball, volleyball and field hockey.

n his first six years at Appalachian State University, director of athletics Charlie Cobb has led the department to unparalleled success. The many achievements enjoyed by Appalachian athletics during the first 72 months of Cobb’s tenure include: • Three NCAA Division I football national championships — marking the first time that any program has ever won three-consecutive NCAA Division I Football Championship Subdivision (FCS — formerly Division I-AA) and the first NCAA football titles ever won by a team from the state of North Carolina at any level. • Shattering football attendance records at Kidd Brewer Stadium with crowds surpassing “The Rock’s” permanent seating capacity for each of ASU’s 28 regular-season home games since Cobb’s arrival in 2005. • A 298-percent increase in football season-ticket sales. • Five-consecutive Commissioner’s Cup championships — recognizing the top overall men’s sports program in the Southern Conference. • Three Germann Cup championships — recognizing the top overall women’s sports program in the SoCon. • Thirty-five percent of the athletics department’s students making the Academic Honor Roll (minimum GPA of 3.25). • Five teams (men’s basketball, women’s cross country, field hockey, women’s indoor and outdoor track and field) earning public recogntion awards, based on being among the nation’s top 10 percent in their respective sports based on Academic Progress Rate (APR) scores. • The Yosef Club, which provides scholarship and facility support for student-athletes, raising over $2.5 million for the first time in 2009-10. Despite the state of the economy, the Yosef Club has reached the $2 million threshold for donations three years in a row and rasied nearly $2 million more in 2009-10 than it did in any year prior a string of five- straight record years since Cobb’s arrival. • Appalachian’s athletics annual budget increasing from $7.5 million in Cobb’s first year to nearly $14.5 million in 2011-12. However, the most notable of Cobb’s many achievements has been the addition of first-class facilities that will give Appalachian the opportunity to be successful across the athletics spectrum for years to come. Facility enhancements totaling $50 million were completed in 2009, headlined by the 120,000-square-foot Appalachian Athletics Center. The seven-story complex, located behind Kidd Brewer Stadium’s west stands, includes new football offices and locker room, a strength and conditioning center, training facilities, academic study space and computer lab for all ASU student-athletes, as well as premium seating in the form of 600 club-level seats and 18 luxury suites. The facility enhancements also included other significant renovations to The Rock. A new ticket plaza, which serves as a grand entrance to the stadium, as well as ornamental fencing that replaced the chain-link barriers that used to surround the stadium and field were completed before the 2007 season, while a 4,400-seat upper deck on the stadium’s east side and substantial upgrades to the east and south concourses were completed prior to the ‘08 campaign. In addition to the renovations to Appalachian’s most visible athletics facility, the campaign has also produced new homes for Mountaineer baseball (Jim and Bettie Smith Stadium), softball (Sywassink/Lloyd Family Stadium) and soccer (at the Ted Mackorell Soccer Complex), as well as the Apps’ first-ever indoor practice facility (Sofield Family Indoor Practice Facility) and renovations to Varsity Gym that have upgraded the facility to a premier practice and competition venue for ASU basketball, indoor track and field, volleyball and wrestling. With the $50 million in facilities enhancements, all 20 of Appalachian’s intercollegiate sports teams now practice and compete in facilities that have either been built or renovated in the last decade. While Cobb is quick to point out the “total team effort” put forth to achieve the many successes that have been enjoyed since he began his tenure as ASU’s director of athletics on July 1, 2005, it is the experience, vision

Track and Field and work ethic of the 42-year-old Cobb that has steered the Mountaineers to new heights. Cobb’s peers recognized him for his efforts when the National Collegiate Athletics Directors Association (NACDA) named him the NCAA Division I FCS Southeast Region Under Armour Athletics Director of the Year in 2011. Prior to his arrival in Boone, Cobb was a member of the athletics department at North Carolina State University from 1998-2005. A four-year football letterwinner at NC State from 1987-90, Cobb served as the Wolfpack’s senior associate athletics director for external operations for the seven years prior to his arrival in Boone. In that role, he oversaw NC State’s marketing, ticket operations, media relations and student-athlete development operations, as well as serving on the department’s compact strategic planning initiative, gender equity and facilities committees. During his tenure, NC State increased football season-ticket sales by 87 percent and men’s basketball season-ticket sales by 121 percent. The combined ticket revenues accounted for an annual increase of over 86 percent for Wolfpack athletics, generating more than $6 million for the department. In addition, Cobb served as NC State’s administrator for baseball and women’s soccer, tournament manager for the 2004 NCAA men’s basketball first and second rounds at the RBC Center and the chair for the southeast region of the NCAA women’s soccer committee. Prior to returning to his alma mater in ‘98, Cobb spent six years in Atlanta, Ga., where he held positions with the Atlanta Sports Council, the Chick-Fil-A Peach Bowl and the Georgia Dome. As an assistant executive director for the Atlanta Sports Council and the Peach Bowl, he helped coordinate Atlanta’s bid for the 2002 NCAA men’s basketball Final Four and handled all game and event operations for the Peach Bowl. As sales manager for the Georgia Dome from 1994-97, Cobb helped procure events such as the Southeastern Conference football championship, the SEC and Atlantic Coast Conference men’s basketball tournaments, NCAA men’s basketball championship events, Georgia High School Association football playoffs, major concerts and other college and amateur sporting events. Cobb graduated with honors with a B.A. in business administration from NC State in 1990. A second-team all-ACC honoree at center as a senior, Cobb was an academic all-ACC selection and collected the prestigious Jim Tatum Award, presented to the ACC football senior with the highest grade point average, and the Bob Warren Memorial Award, given to the Wolfpack football player that displays the highest integrity and sportsmanship. After receiving post-graduate scholarships from both the ACC and NFL Charities, Cobb earned a master’s degree in sports administration from Ohio University in 1992. Cobb is married to the former Lindsay Brecher, who was an allACC goalkeeper for NCSU women’s soccer from 1988-90 and serves as an assistant coach for Appalachian’s women’s soccer program. The Cobbs have a 13-year-old son, Harrison, and a ten-year-old daughter, Branan.

A sound program of intercollegiate athletics should benefit the institution through its effects on students, alumni ad the institution itself. Specifically, it should maintain and improve the loyalty and esprit de corps of the student body, and in strengthening the pride and enthusiasm of the alumni; it should serve as a favorable public relations factor and provide benefits to the participants.

BOONE

NORTH CAROLINA Boone lies in a small valley in the heart of the Southern Appalachians. It is named after the hunter and explorer Daniel Boone, who spent time in the region during the 1760s. Watauga County was formed in 1849 and the Town of Boone incorporated in 1872. Among its accolades are inclusion in National Geographic Adventure magazine’s “Best Places to Live and Play,” Norman Crampton’s “100 Best Small Towns in America,” USA Today’s “10 Great Small Towns with Huge Backyards” and U.S. News and World Report’s “10 Best Places to Retire in the U.S.” Boone is a college town, home to Appalachian State University. Originally Watauga Academy, the institution was formed to educate the mountain children and to ultimately prepare teachers for service through western North Carolina. It became Appalachian State Teachers College in 1929 and joined the University of North Carolina system in 1971. The university serves as a top economic driver followed by a combination of tourism, small business and residential home construction. The Boone area is characterized by mountain culture and casual living. Outdoor activities, cultural events, local dining and unique shops attract visitors from all over the world year-round. From breathtaking scenic views to Boone’s eclectic downtown area, known as King Street, there is something for everyone. One of the highlights of downtown Boone is the university’s Turchin Center for the Visual Arts. It features six gallery spaces and a community education and outreach program. Its exhibitions focus on a blend of recent and historically important artwork and feature nationally and internationally renowned artists as well as many of the finest artists of the region. A wide array of quality arts and cultural events enhance the Boone community. The university’s month-long celebration of performing and visual arts, known as An Appalachian Summer Festival, has brought notable performers such as Paul Taylor Dance Company, London City Opera, Charlie Daniels and the Glenn Miller Orchestra. During the academic year, Appalachian hosts the Performing Arts Series with artists such as Garrison Keillor and the National Symphony Orchestra. Boone offers an uncommon quality of life — that’s why many visitors come for a weekend and stay for a lifetime.

WHAT’S VISIBLE FROM KIDD BREWER STADIUM… State’s Largest Wind Turbine This community-scale, 100-kilowatt wind turbine stands 153 feet and feeds enough electricity directly to the grid to power 15 homes. It was paid for primarily through student funds and in partnership with the campus utility, New River Light and Power. Aside from producing clean energy, the turbine serves as an educational monument to Appalachian’s ethic of sustainability. Howard’s Knob Located just a half mile from downtown Boone, this peak has an elevation of 4,420 feet. It was named for Benjamin Howard, a Revolutionary War loyalist who fled to a cave there to escape American patriots. Rich Mountain One of 20 North Carolina mountains bearing this name, the Watauga County ridge extends northwest from Boone. It is named for its unusually fertile though rugged slopes.
