orth Dakota State University’s baseball team has played and prac�ced on campus at Newman Outdoor Field since 1997. The Bison share the facility with the Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks of the independent Northern League. Completed in June 1996 at an original cost of $5.5 million, the stadium’s permanent sea�ng capacity is 4,513 fans. Naming rights were awarded to Harold Newman, founder of Newman Outdoor Adver�sing, for $1.5 million in 1998. Dimensions are 318 feet to le� field, 399 feet to le�-center field, 408 to center field, 365 to right-center, and 314 down the right-field line. The surface is natural grass. Dressing rooms are located under the stadium behind each dugout, and there is an indoor ba�ng cage. A two-�ered press box with radio and television booths provides ample working space high above home plate between 12 spectator suites.

Fans enjoy the classic feel of a hand-operated scoreboard with full line score and team totals beyond the le�-field fence. A color message board is used to scroll player sta�s�cs and other informa�on. The stadium has superior ligh�ng for evening and late night games and a full-sized infield tarp for foul weather. Newman Outdoor Field has been the site of several playoff games, including the 2000 North Central Conference tournament, six Northern League championship series, and the 2009 American Legion World Series. NDSU previously hosted games at Jack Williams Stadium, the Fargo American Legion facility, five minutes east of campus. NDSU also played on the ar�ficial turf of former Bison football stadium Dacotah Field, and an on-campus diamond at 17th Avenue and Albrecht Boulevard that was lost to construc�on of the Fargodome a�er the 1990 baseball season.

ith an impressive resume of collegiate and professional experience, and a long tenure of coaching baseball in a northern climate, Tod Brown hit the ground running when he was hired as North Dakota State’s head baseball coach in July 2007. Brown, who has a 31-58 record in his first two seasons at NDSU, is execu�ng a comprehensive plan that will put the Bison baseball program on track for longterm success in Division I. Some of the early changes under Brown’s direc�on were immediately no�ceable, including equipment upgrades and a total redesign of the team’s uniforms, caps and travel gear to help establish NDSU’s iden�ty. Other improvements have happened behind the scenes, including scholarship increases and steady progress in the classroom. NDSU has achieved at least a 3.1 GPA the past two fall semesters, and has improved from 2.7 to almost 3.0 over the past two spring seasons. On the field, North Dakota State’s winning percentage jumped 30 points last year and the Bison went from eighth to fi�h place in The Summit League. The 2009 team put up NDSU’s best offensive numbers in five Division I seasons in terms of ba�ng average, on-base percentage and slugging percentage. Brown, 38, previously was the pitching coach and recrui�ng coordinator for eight seasons at Bowling Green State University in Ohio, where he was part of

two division �tles and one regular-season championship in the Mid-American Conference. He coached two MAC Player of the Year award-winners and eight pro dra� picks. Seven players from Brown’s former teams have reached the major leagues, including shortstop J.J. Hardy and pitcher Jamie Vermilyea from Sabino High School, in Tucson, Ariz., ou�ielder Shelley Duncan and pitchers Josh Pearce and Ben Diggins at the University of Arizona, and pitcher Burke Badenhop and ou�ielder Nolan Reimold from Bowling Green. A�er two years as the pitching coach at Sabino High School in Tucson, Ariz., Brown began his collegiate coaching career in 1999 as a volunteer assistant for Arizona. He worked with pitchers and catchers and was the first-base coach for the Wildcats, who qualified for an NCAA regional.

Brown was head coach of the San Francisco Seals of the California Coastal Collegiate League in the summer of 1999, compiling a 43-29 record and making a fourth-place finish in the Na�onal Baseball Congress World Series. A le�-handed pitcher, Brown played for College Baseball Hall of Fame coach Jerry Kindall at Arizona, where he was a member of the 1992 Pac-10 championship team. In 1993, Brown won six games and had eight saves while se�ng Arizona’s single-season record with 35 appearances. He was named to the All-Midwest Regional team as the Wildcats fell one run shy of a College World Series appearance. Brown played professional baseball in 1994 for the Brainerd Bears in the North Central League before signing a free-agent contract with the Cleveland Indians. He was released in spring training a�er a career-ending injury.


BISON COACHES David Pearson Assistant Coach

David Pearson is in his third year as an assistant baseball coach at North Dakota State. He assists in all phases of the program and serves as the team’s hi�ng coach and recruiting coordinator. Pearson, 33, was hired in August 2007 a�er a one-year s�nt as bullpen coach for the Kitsap BlueJackets of the West Coast Collegiate League. He was an assistant baseball coach at Mayville State in 2005 and 2007. At NDSU, Pearson has helped recruit two All-Summit League performers and last year helped the Bison elevate their ba�ng average more than 40 points. He is credited with star�ng two American Legion baseball programs in his home state of North Dakota, including one year as head coach at Hankinson and two years as the head coach at Griggs County. He was an assistant coach at May-Port-CG High School and the University of North Dakota for one season each. Pearson was a two-�me all-conference infielder in junior college at Minot State-Bo�neau and went on to play two seasons at Mayville State. He was a member of two Region 3 championship teams and played in the 2002 NAIA World Series. Pearson graduated from Mayville State in 2003 with a bachelor’s degree in business educa�on. He and his wife, Keleigh, reside in Fargo.

Kole Zimmerman Assistant Coach Brown earned a bachelor’s degree in regional development from Arizona in 1994 and a post-baccalaureate in educa�on from Chapman University in 1997. He and his wife, Janet, have a 9-year-old son, Brooks, and a 6-year-old daughter, Blake.

Former North Dakota State baseball and football player Kole Zimmerman is in his first year as an assistant baseball coach at NDSU. Zimmerman was a catcher, ou�ielder and first baseman for the Bison from 2004 to 2008. He hit .277 with 14 home runs and 117 RBIs in his career and won a North Central Conference championship in 2004. On the football field, Zimmerman was a four-year le�erman at linebacker. He played as a true freshman in 2002 and saw ac�on in five games before a knee injury ended his year and kept him out of the 2003 baseball season. Zimmerman charted 170 tackles and seven sacks in 35 career games for the Bison. He had one intercep�on return for a touchdown his senior year before missing the final game with another knee injury that sidelined him for the 2006 baseball season. Zimmerman, 26, has played minor league baseball with the FargoMoorhead RedHawks of the independent Northern League the past two seasons. A na�ve of Windom, Minn., Zimmerman was a two-�me ESPN The Magazine Academic All-American® and NCAA Postgraduate Scholarship winner. He completed a bachelor’s degree in history at NDSU in 2006 and is working toward a doctorate in history.

SEASON PREVIEW Bison Aim For First Summit League Postseason Appearance With Young, But Experienced Squad With 16 freshmen and sophomores in the North Dakota State baseball program, it would be easy to label the Bison as inexperienced and a non-contender in The Summit League. But a closer look shows NDSU had four freshmen in the star�ng lineup most of last season, and the top four ERAs on the pitching staff belonged to freshmen. They may not be veterans, but they are big-game tested and coming off a 16-28 season in which the Bison placed fi�h in The Summit League at 10-14. “They’ve been through the ups and downs,” said third-year head coach Tod Brown. “It takes pressure off the new first-year players that will be in and out of the lineup.” Six of NDSU’s top seven hi�ers are back, including Freshman All-American catcher Jus�n Kline, who finished seventh in all of Division I baseball with a .432 ba�ng average and made the All-Summit League second team. On the mound, NDSU has six of its top seven arms back, but the Bison will be without ace John Straka, who was an All-Summit League second team starter last year as a freshman. Seven other returning pitchers made starts last year, and NDSU has at least five newcomers who will be in the mix for spots in the rota�on or out of the bullpen. “If our pitchers get into roles that they can handle and perform well, I think offensively and defensively we should be good enough to put up numbers.” North Dakota State is coming off its best offensive output in five years of Division I baseball in terms of team ba�ng average (.296), slugging (.393) and on-base percentage (.373). Here’s a posi�on-by-posi�on look at the Bison, who are aiming to reach their first Summit League postseason tournament:

2010 BISON BASEBALL

Pitchers

North Dakota State will split innings between eight poten�al star�ng pitchers during its season-opening road trip to Lamar. The goal from there is to se�le on a four-man weekend rota�on and iden�fy three top relief pitchers before Summit League play in April. “That’s why we play these early games is to give guys chances that deserve chances and let them pitch themselves into roles they can handle,” Brown said. Right-handed sophomore Zach Wentz will likely keep his spot as NDSU’s fourth weekend starter in addi�on to playing first base. Wentz was 3-2 with a 5.03 ERA and made six starts for the Bison last year.

Sophomores Jus�n Kline (le�) and Zach Wentz were North Dakota State’s top two hi�ers last year. Kline’s .432 average was seventh in the na�on, and Wentz hit .349 with a 3-2 record in six starts on the mound.

Senior right-hander McHale Maristuen had 21 strikeouts in 26 1/3 innings in his first year with the Bison a�er transferring in from Williston State. He made four starts in eight total appearances. Sophomore le�-hander Glenn Parker will ba�le for a star�ng spot a�er breaking into the weekend rota�on for his last four assignments last year. Parker was third on the team with a 4.59 ERA. Junior college transfer Mark Schroeder is also in conten�on for a spot in the weekend rota�on. The right-handed Schroeder was 8-0 with a 2.92 ERA at Des Moines Area Community College last year. Brown says the Bison are coun�ng on right-hander Kirk Dehler to make an impact in the star�ng lineup. Dehler missed the 2009 season with a bone chip in his shoulder. Another right-hander returning from injury could be a key addi�on to the Bison rota�on. Junior Colby Togne� went 0-3 in four early starts last year before si�ng out the rest of the year with a bone spur in his elbow. He was 7-5 with a 2.17 ERA at Miles Community College two years ago. Other contenders for star�ng assignments or extended middle relief are sidearm righthanders Alex Chaput and Mark Ries.

Chaput made three starts in 12 appearances and went 2-1 with a 4.55 ERA that was second best on the team. Ries was 3-5 with a 5.79 ERA in 13 appearances. He threw a complete-game five-hit shutout at Oakland in his first of six collegiate starts. Freshmen Simon Anderson, Mark Hermes and Kyle Kingsley are candidates for middle relief to get their feet wet straight out of high school. The Bison return 6-foot-7 righty Anthony Kliniske to the closer’s role out of the bullpen. Kliniske was 2-3 with a 5.93 ERA in 13 relief appearances and had 37 strikeouts in 27 1/3 innings as a freshman last year. Junior college transfer Jason Ma�la from Miles Community College in Montana may also break in as a late reliever. Ma�la was 7-1 with a 1.23 ERA last year.

Catchers

North Dakota State may have one of its best 1-2 catching tandems in recent history with the combina�on of Kline and junior college transfer Tanner Adam. The le�-handed hi�ng Kline is the first Bison player to hit over .400 at the Division I level and, defensively, threw out 33 percent of would-be base stealers.


SEASON PREVIEW “He gets into the flow of the game, blocks pitches, throws, and controls our pitching staff extremely well,” Brown said. Adam came to the Bison by way of Des Moines Area Community College, where he hit .335 over 96 games in two seasons. He will see playing �me early as Kline ba�les back from shoulder surgery. Sophomore Tyler Steen also returns behind the plate for NDSU a�er missing most of the 2009 season with a knee injury.

2010 BISON BASEBALL

North Dakota State’s .952 fielding percentage last year ranked fourth best in school history and the anchor was shortstop Max Casper, who started 42 of 44 games as a walkon freshman. “He doesn’t look like a Division I shortstop,” Brown said, “but when you see him play for one game you say that’s the guy you want playing shortstop.” Casper hit .301 for the Bison in the No. 9 spot in the order but Brown says he handles the bat well enough to maybe move into the No. 2 spot. But his .960 fielding percentage up the middle is most important. “He’s a wizard over there,” Brown said. “He made plays that nobody on our team can make except him.” NDSU will be coun�ng on another true freshman to make a similar impact on the right side of the infield. Wes Satzinger from Andover, Minn., is slated to be the star�ng second baseman and backup shortstop. He played second base alongside Casper in a 2009 summer league. Junior Preston Ghizoni returns as the backup second baseman and freshman Jackson Seaman will be in the running to play the middle infield and pitch in relief. Wentz made 37 starts at first base last year when he wasn’t pitching and finished as NDSU’s second leading hi�er with a .349 average. He led the Bison in at-bats (169), hits (59), doubles (11), homers (3), RBIs (25) and total bases (81). “When you hit third, you have a bull’seye on your back that you’re the best hi�er,” Brown said. “He saw everybody’s best stuff at all �mes and he really performed well.” Zach Heidmann, one of only three le�handed bats in the NDSU lineup, will play first base with Wentz on the mound. Heidmann hit .279 with 10 doubles and split �me as a corner ou�ielder and designated hi�er. Seniors Kenny Beese and Eric Nutzhorn return at third base. Beese hit .250 and Nutzhorn hit .269 last year, and the duo combined to make 43 of 44 starts for the Bison. Nutzhorn also was the designated hi�er in eight games last year.

Junior college transfer Jay Hartman will challenge for the star�ng job a�er transferring from Southeast Community College in Nebraska. Brown describes Hartman as an aggressive hi�er and steady defender who can help shore up the le� side of the infield. He hit .288 and played in 35 games at Southeast last year.

THE SUMMIT LEAGUE The Summit League

THE SUMMIT LEAGUE

Now in its 28th year as an NCAA Division I athle�cs conference, The Summit League con�nues its renaissance and ascent both on the playing fi eld and in the classroom. Originally formed in 1982 as the Associa�on of Mid-Con�nent Universi�es and later known as the Mid-Con�nent Conference, The Summit League is in its third year of a rebranding that followed its 25th anniversary and coincided with the Summit Plan, a strategic plan that places a renewed emphasis on improving the academic and athle�c performances of all league student-athletes. Included in the plan was the league’s new name, the crea�on of a new image and the addi�on of three member ins�tu�ons. The 10 Summit League member ins�tu�ons include Centenary College of Louisiana, IPFW (Indiana University-Purdue University Fort Wayne), IUPUI (Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis), UMKC (University of Missouri-Kansas City), North Dakota State University, Oakland University, Oral Roberts University, South Dakota State University, Southern Utah University and Western Illinois University. In April 2009, the University of South Dakota accepted an invita�on to join the league with full membership during the 2011-12 academic year and will begin as an associate member for swimming and diving in 2009-10. The league has one other associate member, Eastern Illinois University, which competes in swimming and diving. Centenary College will leave the league a�er the 2010-11 season. These member ins�tu�ons pride themselves on providing quality athle�c, academic and social experiences for their student-athletes. The Summit League sponsors 19 championship sports, which include: baseball, men’s and women’s basketball, men’s and women’s cross country, men’s and women’s golf, men’s and women’s soccer, so�ball, men’s and women’s swimming and diving, men’s and women’s indoor track and field, men’s and women’s outdoor track and field, men’s and women’s tennis, and volleyball. The league champion receives automa�c bids to the NCAA tournament in all applicable sports. Since its incep�on in 1982, The Summit League has had several transcendent moments on the na�onal stage. In 1986, Cleveland State upset third-seeded Indiana in the first round of the NCAA men’s basket-

ball tournament on its way to a berth in the Sweet 16. A decade later, Valparaiso captured the na�on’s a�en�on when Bryce Drew hit “the shot” to defeat No. 4 seed Mississippi in an NCAA first-round game and spark its Sweet 16 run. More recently, the Oral Roberts baseball program finished the 2004 campaign with a na�onal ranking and became the first Summit League school to reach the NCAA Super Regionals in 2006. The league has produced four Olympic athletes, four NCAA champions and several All-Americans in the sports of track and field, swimming and diving and cross country. Numerous professionals and several dra� choices have come directly from The Summit League, including three Major League Baseball first round picks, a pair of NBA first rounders and one WNBA selec�on. Former Summit Leaguers Kevin Duckworth (NBA) and Kevin Seitzer (MLB) each were two-�me all-stars during their professional careers. Recent and historical success coupled with an increased growth among its membership base gives The Summit League a promising future on the landscape of college athle�cs.

NDSU AT A GLANCE

N

As the Land Grant ideal mandates prepara�on for society’s changes, NDSU is preparing students for and assis�ng business with the global marketplace. The state, na�on and world can expect more in the years to come. NDSU has used these five themes in its transforma�on: “It’s About People,” “Students are Paramount,” “Programs,” “Leveraging Support” and “Stature.” Three qualita�ve principles are being added: “Inclusive,” “Responsive” and “Excellent.” Looking to the future, the university has outlined several goals, including: • NDSU will further raise the caliber of its research enterprise. • NDSU will be among the top 15 computer centers in the world, with compu�ng power approaching 100 teraflops. A teraflop is a compu�ng speed equal to one trillion floating-point opera�ons per second. • NDSU will con�nue to be one of the leading agricultural research programs in the world.

• NDSU will make advancements in the arts, humani�es, health sciences, material science and science, and engineering and mathema�cs educa�onal programs. • NDSU will become one of the top 100 universi�es in the number of Na�onal Merit Scholars enrolled.

NDSU: yesterday and today

The state’s first land-grant university was established as North Dakota Agricultural College on March 8, 1890, and organized for educa�onal work on Oct. 15, 1890. President Horace E. Stockbridge and a five-member faculty welcomed the first class of 30 students as they took a winter agricultural course. Old Main, the campus’ landmark building, was completed in 1892. Renamed in 1960 as North Dakota State University of Agriculture and Applied Science, the ins�tu�on educates students for a mul�tude of career opportuni�es. The university is

2010 BISON BASEBALL

orth Dakota State University is a “place of impact” and an ins�tu�on with both success and momentum. With growth to more than 14,000 students and annual research expenditures topping $100 million, NDSU has enjoyed a remarkable period of achievement. Shortly a�er former president Joseph Chapman’s arrival on campus in 1999, he challenged each college and department to advance to the next level. The results have led to increased educa�onal programs, greater research opportuni�es and a growing, prospering university. During this extraordinary decade, NDSU’s growth has meant an addi�onal $1 billion to the state’s economy. There also has been tremendous growth in facili�es in recent years, and two downtown Fargo buildings have joined the NDSU community. The former Pioneer Mutual Building is now Richard H. Barry Hall with offices and classrooms for the College of Business and the Department of Agribusiness and Applied Economics.

Fargo: a great place to live, work and study

The home of NDSU, Fargo is a bustling metropolitan area that is o�en listed as one of the best places to live in the country. Named an All-American City by the Na�onal Civic League in 2000, Fargo-Moorhead is the largest community between Minneapolis and Sea�le. About 187,000 people make their home in Cass and Clay Coun�es. Accolades for the community come from a variety of sources. For instance, Forbes.com listed NDSU and Fargo as number five in an ar�cle called “Top College Towns for Jobs.” The research used U.S. metropolitan sta�s�cal area data and examined job growth using data from Moody’s Economy.com. A report from the American Lung Associa�on names Fargo-Moorhead as the best city

for ozone pollu�on, short-term par�cle pollu�on and long-term par�cle pollu�on. Fargo-Moorhead has topped a list of 72 areas studied by Earth Day Network and ranked for environmental health. Researchers looked at more than 200 indicators, with Fargo the best in air quality, drinking and surface water, and toxins and waste. In addi�on, Fargo-Moorhead ranked 15th on the “Best U.S. Ci�es for Job Growth” published on NewGeography.com.

A campus commi�ed to the future Advances have come and con�nue on many fronts across the university, and the people of NDSU are op�mis�cally looking to the challenges and opportuni�es of the future.

NDSU AT A GLANCE Gene Taylor, Athletic Director

2010 BISON BASEBALL

When he came to North Dakota State University in the summer of 2001, Gene Taylor inherited a department surrounded by a whirlwind of ques�ons. In his first year as the director of athle�cs at North Dakota State, Taylor was asked to spearhead a comprehensive study and evalua�on of the Bison athle�c department. He has guided the athle�cs program through the unpredictable waters of reclassifica�on to NCAA Division I from Division II. One of most important pieces of the transi�on was securing conference affilia�ons for all 16 sports. The Bison are currently members of The Summit League, Missouri Valley Football Conference and Western Wrestling Conference. Taylor also played an instrumental part of forming the Great West Football Conference in February 2004, an affilia�on that gave the Bison football program an immediate home in Division I. He served as chair of the coaches commi�ee. Also on the reclassifica�on checklist: fundraising. Taylor spearheaded an increase in the Bison athle�cs budget, which has more than doubled from $5 million in his first year to almost $12.5 million for the 2008-09 season. He was recognized for his success by the Na�onal Associa�on of Collegiate Directors of Athle�cs in June 2008. Taylor was one of 29 recipients of the AstroTurf AD of the Year award as the Football Championship Subdivision Central Region winner. A student assistant to the associate athle�c director in his undergraduate days at Arizona State University, Taylor came to NDSU a�er a 15-year s�nt at Navy (1986-2001) as an administra�ve assistant, assistant �cket manager, �cket manager, assistant athle�c director for �ckets and opera�ons, and associate athle�c director. Taylor is a 1980 business management graduate of Arizona State, and he received his master’s degree in sports administra�on in 1985 from St. Thomas University in Florida. He worked in the �cket office at Southern Methodist University in 1985-86 directly before joining the Naval Academy and was in the private restaurant business before that for five years. His tenure at Navy included serving as the commissioner of the five-team Collegiate Sprint Football League that includes Army, Navy, Penn, Princeton and Cornell. Taylor and his wife, Cathy, are the parents of a daughter, Casey, and a son, Jared.

NDSU AT A GLANCE Student-Athlete Support The North Dakota State University athle�c programs strive to provide personalized support for all student-athletes. The administrators, coaches and staff at NDSU have made a commitment to ensure that the needs of the student-athlete come first.

ACE: Academic Collegiate Enhancement

Intercollegiate athle�cs, in coopera�on with Orienta�on and Student Success, offers an academic enhancement program designed to assist all student-athletes. Tutors are on site and assist student-athletes by providing one-on-one or small group assistance. Each head coach has specific academic criteria for admission into the program.

Residence Life

Living on campus is an important part of the college experience. It’s a way to make new friends and join a variety of educa�onal, cultural, social and recrea�onal ac�vi�es. Na�onal studies show students living on campus are more likely to persist in their educa�on and earn higher GPAs than their off-campus peers. The Department of Residence Life offers a variety of op�ons for on-campus living, from tradi�onal men’s and women’s halls to four-bedroom apartments. The goal is to provide NDSU students a clean, safe, comfortable and affordable environment where academic success is encouraged and supported. On-campus living offers the opportunity to become part of a learning community.

Strength and Condi�oning

2010 BISON BASEBALL

North Dakota State takes a comprehensive approach to the physical development of the student-athlete. Strength training, speed development, plyometrics, agility and condi�oning programs are based on the specific movements and physiological demands of each sport. Under the supervision of NDSU’s three full-�me strength and condi�oning coaches, Bison student-athletes follow year-round training programs that increase each student-athlete’s level of strength, power, speed, agility, condi�oning and flexibility.

Media Coverage

The media spotlight shines on North Dakota State’s athle�c teams from the opening of fall camps into the summer months. With four network television sta�ons, three sports talk radio hosts, and the state’s largest daily newspaper all headquartered in Fargo, the Bison are con�nually a hot topic locally and in the region. Along with regular television news coverage on ABC, NBC, CBS and FOX affiliates, the Bison receive expanded regional and na�onal coverage of select regular-season games and championship events on ESPN, Fox Sports Net, CBS College Sports, and other regional carriers.

From the se�lers of the past to the farmers of the present, agriculture always has been and will con�nue to be the strength of North Dakota. The state is home to some of the richest soil in the world. North Dakota is a prime exporter of agricultural products, taking the trophy in produc�on of several crops. North Dakota ranks first in the produc�on of flaxseed, canola, durum wheat, all dry edible beans, all dry edible peas, spring wheat, honey, len�ls, sunflowers, barley and oats. About 10 percent of North Dakota’s area, the band of rich soil 40 miles west of the Red River, is o�en called the “Breadbasket of the World.” Livestock produc�on is second only to wheat in North Dakota’s agricultural economy. It is most important in western North Dakota where the land is less suited for grain crops. The main livestock are beef, dairy ca�le and hogs. The importance of ca�le ranching has been challenged in recent years by the development of North Dakota’s tremendous oil and coal reserves. Energy is the state’s thirdlargest industry. Since the late 1970s and the infamous Arab oil embargo, North Dakota has been in the forefront of the na�onal effort to provide more oil and gas from domes�c sources. North Dakota has one of the world’s largest deposits of lignite coal. Among coal-producing states, North Dakota ranks ninth and produces 3 percent of the na�on’s output.

NCAA COMPLIANCE

N

orth Dakota State University’s athletics program is rich in tradition. Its storied history includes national, regional, and conference championships and champions. On top of these athletic achievements are numerous academic championships earned by our student-athletes. As we strive to continue the championship tradition of Bison Athletics, we must always seek the highest of ethical conduct. North Dakota State University is unconditionally committed to NCAA rules and regulations. As an NCAA member institution, we must be responsible for ensuring that everyone abides by those rules. There is no margin for unethical behavior.

ARE YOU A REPRESENTATIVE OF NDSU’S ATHLETICS INTERESTS? You are a representative of NDSU’s athletics interests, more commonly known as a “booster”, if you meet any of the following conditions:  You have been or are a member of any organization that promotes NDSU’s athletics program (e.g., NDSU Foundation, Team Makers).  You have made a financial contribution to the NDSU athletics department or its booster organization.  You have ever assisted in the recruitment of prospects for NDSU.  You have provided benefits (e.g. summer jobs or occasional family meals) to enrolled studentathletes.  You have arranged for or provided employment for enrolled student-athletes, or assisted in providing any benefit to enrolled student-athletes or their families.  You have ever, in any way, promoted the athletics program at NDSU. NOTE: Please remember that once you become a booster, you retain that identity indefinitely. WHO IS A PROSPECTIVE STUDENT-ATHLETE? A prospective student-athlete, commonly known as a “prospect,” is any individual who has started classes for the 9th grade. In addition, student-athletes enrolled in preparatory school or two-year colleges are considered prospects. Ultimately, a student remains a prospect until enrollment at a four-year collegiate institution. It is possible for a younger student-athlete to be a prospect so it is a good idea to treat all athletes as prospects until they enroll.

WHO CAN RECRUIT FOR NORTH DAKOTA STATE UNIVERSITY?

56

Only North Dakota State University coaches who successfully complete the annual NCAA Coaches Certificate Exam, which tests their knowledge of NCAA recruitment legislation, are permitted to be involved in the recruiting process. As a booster, you are specifically prohibited from:  Making any recruiting contacts with prospects or their relatives. This includes telephone calls, letters, e-mails, and facsimiles, along with any face-to-face contact either on or off campus.  Assisting NDSU coaches by picking up transcripts, films, or any other information pertaining to a

With your assistance and cooperation, we believe we can continue to represent the university with integrity, the highest of ethical standards, and the belief in doing what is right. Whether you are an alum, donor, booster, or friend of Bison Athletics, the university is grateful for your support. Together we can accomplish the common goal of ensuring a positive experience for all student-athletes. NDSU is subject to penalties for all violations committed by any alum, donor, booster or friend.

prospect’s ability from the prospect’s educational institution.  Providing a benefit to high school, prep school or community college coaches. NCAA RULES REGARDING THE INTERNET The internet is considered similar to e-mail, telephone calls, or general correspondence. Therefore, it should not be used by boosters to contact prospects, their families, or their coaches. Participation in “chat rooms” with prospects is strictly prohibited. NCAA RULES REGARDING BOOSTER INVOLVEMENT WITH PROSPECTS  You may not provide financial aid or benefit of any kind (e.g., clothing, special discounts, lodging, meals, transportation, tickets, loans of money) to prospects or their relatives.  You may not contact a prospective student-athlete to congratulate him/her on signing a National Letter of Intent to attend NDSU.  You may not provide transportation or arrange for payment of transportation costs for a prospect or his/her relatives or friends to visit campus.  You may not earmark funds nor pay for specific prospects to attend an NDSU summer camp.  You may not employ or arrange for employment of a prospect before the completion of his/her senior year. After graduation, a booster may employ a prospect as long as compensation is for work actually performed and at a rate commensurate with experience and the going rate.  You may not provide anything to a prospect or the prospect’s family or friends without prior approval from the Compliance Office. NCAA RULES REGARDING BOOSTER INVOLVEMENT WITH ENROLLED STUDENT-ATHLETES  You may not pay for or arrange for payment of room, board, or any type of transportation at any time for currently enrolled student-athletes, their relatives, or their friends.  You may not provide student-athletes with any sort of extra benefit, which refers to any special arrangement provided a student-athlete or his/her relatives or friends with the benefit unavailable to the general student population.

 You may not provide student-athletes with any special discounts, payment arrangements (e.g., cosigning a loan), credits on a purchase (e.g., airline ticket, clothing), or services (e.g., dry cleaning, transportation).  You may not allow student-athletes to use your telephone or make free calls.  You may not provide awards or gifts to studentathletes for any reason. This also prohibits honorariums for speaking engagements. All awards to studentathletes must meet all NCAA legislation and be approved by the Compliance Office.  You may not entertain student-athletes or their families and friends. You may not even buy them a cup of coffee or a can of soda. The only exception to this is that you may, on an occasional basis, provide a student-athlete or team (not family members or friends) with a meal. The meal can be catered, but it must be in your home.  You may not use the name or picture of a studentathlete to advertise a commercial product.  You may not purchase complimentary admissions from a current student-athlete.  You may not provide an honorarium to a studentathlete for speaking engagement. NOTE: These rules apply throughout the studentathlete’s entire enrollment at NDSU. WHAT CAN YOU DO?  Forward information about prospects to the appropriate NDSU coaching staff member.  View a prospect’s athletics contest on your own initiative, provided you do not contact the prospect or his/her relatives, coach, principal, or counselor in an attempt to evaluate the academic or athletic abilities of the prospect. You are responsible for all incurred costs or fees at a contest.  Speak to a prospect on the telephone ONLY if the prospect initiates the call. You are not permitted to have a recruiting conversation, but you may exhibit normal civility. Under such circumstances, you must refer questions about the athletics program to the athletics department staff.  Employ a prospect or student-athlete, provided permission has been granted by the athletics department. The student-athlete will ask you to provide employment information to the athletics department prior to employment.
