University of the Ozarks UNIVERSITY OF THE OZARKS has approached education with an unyielding search for truth. That search led our founders to establish the first co-educational college west of the Mississippi. It set the stage for the first Arkansas woman to receive a college degree. And because truth often defies convention, ours was the first historically white college in the state to admit AfricanAmericans. Every day, our history inspires Ozarks students to discover their own individual truths.

avid Ferrell has never finished last, but for the first time in his career, the 49-year-old veteran coach is happy to be in that spot. Last, at least, to call Ozarks his home. Ferrell will join daughter, Jordyn, and son, Josh, on the Clarksville campus for the 2013-2014 school year. Jordyn just finished an All-Conference senior season at Ozarks and was named the new assistant women’s basketball coach there. Josh just wrapped up an AllStar season at West Fork High School and committed to Ozarks in the spring. And, now their father, will be the 12 > > >

head men’s basketball coach, a position he accepted in June, making it a true family affair. The newly named head coach felt Ozarks was a special place after visiting the campus to watch his daughter play the past two seasons. “My family and I absolutely love the university,” he said. “I was sold on the quality education the University of the Ozarks offered. It is a special place.” David and his wife, Kelly, were happy when Josh decided to join his sister at Ozarks, but it was icing on the cake when David landed the job at the NCAA III school.

in 24 years as a head coach at Shiloh Christian, Lincoln, Gravette and West Fork. Ferrell, who never experienced a losing season, will rely on his Arkansas connections to turn the program around. The well-known Ferrell, who has worked alongside Gus Malzahn, Mike Anderson and Jimmy Dykes during his coaching career, served as the Vice-President of the Arkansas High School Basketball Coaches Association and founded the popular Arkansas Athletes Outreach Top-25 basketball camp in 1995. Roots run deep at West Fork, where David, his wife and all three of his children played basketball. It was difficult in one sense to leave the community, but also an easy choice to be around two of his children again. In the end, Kelly was especially influential when the door opened at Ozarks. “When it came down to decision time, she wanted me to do this,” he said. “She is the perfect coach’s wife. She understands the lifestyle of a coach and has been through it all. She is as excited about this as I am.” summer issue

Boxell resigned after four years leading the Eagles program, opening up the opportunity for the elder Ferrell. “My wife and I felt really lucky and blessed to have Jordyn and Josh at the same place,” he said. “But now it is an even better situation. It is a rare opportunity. I’m looking forward to it.” Ferrell is especially grateful for the opportunity to be able to see both Jordyn and Josh on a daily basis. “I get the chance to coach my son again and I get to coach with my daughter,” he said. “My office is about ten feet away from Jordyn. I get to see each of them every day and that is unusual. We just feel really blessed to be together.” Ironically, the Ferrell’s other daughter, Jassa, nearly came to Ozarks to run cross country, but eventually settled on the University of Central Arkansas. All three siblings have a long list of athletic accomplishments, but David and Kelly are most proud of the life-changing activities their children do away from athletic competition. “I’m more proud of them as human beings than as athletes,” said David. “They are fine Christians. Jordyn and Jassa went on a mission trip over spring break and Josh wants to eventually do a mission trip.” David’s ascension to college head basketball coach is rare considering he had no head coaching experience at the collegiate level. But his high school resume speaks for itself. He spent the last 21 years as the head boy’s basketball coach at West Fork High School where he posted a 458-176 (.733) record and made eight trips to the state tournament. He compiled a 510-202 (.716) career record

They possess a lot of internal motivation.” While the competition may be friendly, the pair has had plenty of intense matches during practice. “The intensity dials up in practice when they play a match against each other,” said Wiseman. “It is heated and takes forever. They are very, very close in ability. I give the slight nod to Todd in singles because he is a little more creative on the bigger points. And in doubles, I give the edge to Bishop because he has better hands and a better all-around feel for playing doubles.” While the two could be satisfied with what they have accomplished thus far, Wiseman appreciates the attitude the pair displayed following the season. “After the last match they both said they have a lot of work to do over the summer,” he said. “They want to prepare and concentrate on next season.

The 6-foot-3, 175-pound right-handed hitter won the title over Schreiner University’s Chase Valdez, who hit .399. To secure the title, Prince caught fire late in the season posting a .500 average in the month of April. Prince, a native of Jonesboro, Ark., also led the league in hits with 63.

Behind Prince’s bat, Ozarks finished the season with a league-high .299 batting average. “Freddy was our most consistent hitter all year and was hot in the last half of the year,” said head coach Jimmy Clark. “Without a doubt, winning a batting title is not an easy thing to do.

He eventually chose Ozarks after starring as a catcher in high school. “We saw him at a showcase in Tulsa and we really liked his arm,” said Clark. ”Even as a catcher that stood out. He had opportunities to play elsewhere, but chose us.” Clark has seen his multi-talented player progress over the last three years and expects another solid season in 2014. “He has gotten better over his three years here,” said Clark. “He has more plate discipline. He was the best hitter in the conference in 2013. He is very athletic. He can run the bases and he can steal bases, and in the outfield he can run down balls. And, with a laser arm from the outfield, opponents don’t run on him. With his frame and athletic ability, I think he could play a couple of different sports in college.” Clark also appreciates Prince’s work ethic and points to an improved mental approach for his success. “He is usually the first guy at the field,” he said. “He is willing to put in the work. He is a lot better mentally since his freshman year and that has translated into more success on the field.”

All-America shortstop Cory Briggs accomplished the feat in 2008 with a .467 average. For his hitting prowess, Prince was named to the 2013 D3baseball.com All-Region Second Team and the American Southwest Conference All-East Division First Team. “He hit over .400 with the new bats, but it would have been interesting to see what he could have done with the old bats,” said Clark. Prince is no stranger to hitting for average. He finished with a .529 mark his senior season at Westside High School in Jonesboro. And, he has carried that trend into summer baseball. He was named the Hitter of the Night in the Texas Collegiate League for his performance June 11. Prince, who plays for the Acadiana (Louisiana) Cane Cutters, went 2-for-3 with a home run and four RBI in a win over the Victoria Generals. Ironically, it is not his bat that could afford him the opportunity to play professionally. It is his right arm, according to Clark. “He has the best arm I’ve ever coached,” said Clark. “It is electric. In the summer collegiate league, he will have a chance to be seen by a number of scouts. Someone might take a chance on him because he runs it up there in the lower to mid-90’s. We really hope he will have a chance to get drafted. He has gotten better on the mound.
