2010 OUTLOOK • CATCHERS/STARTING PITCHERS/BULLPEN INTRO With the Southland Conference coming off its most successful season in five years, the Stephen F. Austin Lumberjacks could be in line to join the party as one of the league’s top teams in 2010 in Johnny Cardenas’ second year at the helm of the program. With the least amount of returning players of any team in the Southland, SFA is optimistic that arguably its strongest recruiting class yet will to come in and make an immediate impact, pushing the ‘Jacks into the upper echelon of the SLC.

CATCHER

• A pitcher-friendly catcher that took over starting job after walking on as a freshman. Good offensive power and bad-ball hitter making him hard to strike out.

PROJECTED WEEKEND STARTERS

Tyler Herriage • JR • LHP

The ‘Jacks lost 18 players off of last year’s roster, including all three of its all-conference players in Erich Lehmann, Richard Folmer and Sean Meyers. But with the league having had more players drafted than any season since 2005 this could be a prime year for SFA to take advantage with 23 newcomers on this season’s roster.

• Two-time MLB draftee that should headline the SFA rotation with a quick work ethic and 86-88 mph fastball .

Jared West • JR • RHP

CATCHERS Last year did not go as expected for the ‘Jacks behind the plate, but when the dust settled SFA came out of the year both comfortable and confident in what it had stumbled into as a backstop.

• Held opponents to a low average in 2009, consistently working out of jams with a hard fastball that is complimented by a good curve ball and improving chamgeup.

An injury to Ryan Sinclair midway through the year forced freshman walkon Jarid Scarafiotti into a backup role, but it didn’t take him long to take over the starting spot. He smashed a home run at Northwestern State and continued to hit, finishing the year by hitting over .300 in his first season. The only player on the SFA roster from outside the state of Texas, the Shreveport, La., native will be counted on early in the season to be a middle-of-the-order presence for the ‘Jacks after hitting five home runs in just 85 at-bats last year in 24 starts. Behind him will be junior college transfer Riley Huble, who has two years or eligibility remaining after coming in from Hill College following a 2009 season that saw him hit .336 with three home runs for the Rebels. “This is may be the best catching duo we have had here in terms of pitchers feeling comfortable and wanting to throw to their catcher,” Cardenas said.

Jarid Scarafiotti • SOPH • C

Justin Braddock • JR • RHP • Was 12-1 as a sophomore at Cisco JC and makes up for lower velocity with pinpoint control, walking just 10 hitters in 81.2 innings last year.

CLOSER Alex Moshier • JR • RHP • Mixes an 88-90 mph fastball with a slider and had 37 strikeouts in a team-best 32 appearances in 2009.

STARTING PITCHERS Nine pitchers got at least one start last season for SFA, while five hurlers got at least one opportunity to start in conference play. Three of those pitchers have moved on, including all-conference starter Erich Lehmann. That leaves Jared West and Brett Rogers as the two returners with weekend experience with each making 15 appearances a year ago. West finished the season as the ‘Jacks’ Saturday starter, but, he was at his best when he was at home, going 4-0 with a 2.17 ERA on home soil in six starts. As for Rogers, he started off last season in the weekend rotation and will likely start off the season as one of the four SFA starters, but his calling may come in the form of relief after holding hitters to a .195 average out of the bullpen in 2009. “Jared had a very good year last season and he has all of the tools to be a guy that could pitch at the next level, but he has to harness his control and be more consistent,” Cardenas said. “Brett is a different guy in that he really relies on his control to get the job done. He kept us in several games last year by not being erratic and letting things get out of hand.” They will be joined by junior college transfers Tyler Herriage and Justin Braddock as the likely four starters when camp breaks in February. Herriage is a two-time draftee from Weatherford College with two seasons of eligibility remaining. The left-hander works quickly off an upper-80s fast ball and is coming off a strong finish to his sophomore campaign after recovering from an arm injury. He will be a welcome addition to the SFA rotation as the ‘Jacks went all of 2009 without a lefty on the roster. “Herriage is probably our biggest acquisition from a year ago,” Cardenas said. “We feel like he is a legitimate No. 1, Friday night, guy and we are going to put a lot of pressure on him because we feel he has broad enough shoulders to handle it.” Braddock is a right-handed junior from Cisco Junior College that is also coming off a breakout season as a sophomore, going 12-1 for the Wranglers in 2009 and even throwing the school’s first ever no-hitter in February. Despite only taking up pitching three seasons ago, he has pinpoint control which is evident by his 66 strikeouts to just 10 walks over 81.2 innings last season. BULLPEN Last season the strength of the SFA pitching staff was the late-inning relief with Richard Folmer, Chris Court and Alex Moshier making up a three-headed monster that was arguably the strongest trio of relievers in the league.

STEPHEN F. AUSTIN LUMBERJACKS • 2010 BASEBALL MEDIA GUIDE


2010 OUTLOOK • BULLPEN/INFIELDERS Unfortunately the draft and graduation took two-thirds of that trio, but junior right-hander Alex Moshier now has a full year as an exclusive pitcher under his belt and is set to slide into Folmer’s closer role. “There is no doubt that the strength of our team last season were those three guys at the back of our bullpen,” Cardenas said. “We rode those three guys as long as we possibly could and I do think that toward the end of the year they finally showed some fatigue, which forced us to put an emphasis on trying to find a few other guys that could eat up some of those late innings this year.” Moshier did not have a save opportunity last year, but his 90-mph fastball and power slider were good enough to strike out 37 hitters in just 34.0 innings out of the bullpen and hold right-handers to just a .188 average. He was used frequently, making 32 appearances, which tied for second in the Southland and even tied the all-time SFA record for a single season. “This is a big year for Moshier, and hopefully he can take advantage of it. He is a guy that has a lot of ability and if he can show the scouts that he can be successful in consecutive seasons then he will likely put himself in position to get drafted this summer,” Cardenas said. However, the ‘Jacks have to find a way to get the game to Moshier and that is where a slew of newcomers enter into the picture. Relievers Landon Kozeny, Cody Priest and Brad Oates will all be counted in the late innings.

PROJECTED MIDDLE INFIELDERS Tanner Hines • SR • SS • Rangy shortstop that made immediate impact on SFA defense as a junior and returns 17 stolen bases and a .353 average after being named honorable mention all-SLC in 2009.

Michael Haynes • JR • IF

• Will see time at three infield positions for the ‘Jacks and possesses arguably the quickest release of any fielder that has ever put on an SFA uniform.

PROJECTED CORNER INFIELDERS Darren Crabtree • JR • 1B/DH • Expected to pick up majority of slack vacated by Sean Meyers at first base. Brings immediate power, average and run production to the SFA lineup from the left side.

Bobby Loveless • JR • IF • A strong, right-handed hitter that should provide an immediate power presence in the middle of the ‘Jacks lineup.

Kozeny brings a wealth of talent after pitching the last two seasons at Brookhaven College, while Priest – the younger brother of outfielder Ryan Priest – has the type of stuff that could eventually land him in the closer’s role in years to come. As a senior at Dobie High School he held hitters to just a .174 average and posted a 1.41 ERA in a competitive 5A district in the Houston area. “We really liked the idea of the three-headed monster last season, and it worked out well for us. Hopefully Landon and Cody can help us bridge that gap like Chris (Court) and Moshier did last year when we tried to get the game to Folmer,” Cardenas said. Oates will be another arm to watch out of the pen, but he could find himself in the starting rotation before the year concludes after winning 12 games over the last two seasons at Cisco Junior College as a starter. Zack Taylor, Jason West and Cory Ochs are also three returning names to watch for as each made appearances in 2009. Taylor made 11 appearances as a redshirt freshman and could make some midweek starts in addition to weekend relief appearances, while West also made 13 appearances out of the bullpen and his sidearm delivery proved to be tough against right-handers. If he can cut into the gap between his right and left-handed splits he could see his inning total jump significantly in 2010. Right-handed freshmen Josh Wright, Brett Higginbotham, Aaron Lasater and Nick Hawkins will also provide some depth to the staff with Wright and Higginbotham possibly being in line for some midweek starts. MIDDLE INFIELD Tanner Hines is the top name back on the infield and will enter his senior campaign as arguably the top shortstop in the Southland after earning an honorable mention all-conference nod last year despite leading all league shortstops with his .353 batting average. “The one spot we may feel the most comfortable about entering this season is with Tanner at shortstop,” Cardenas said. “He was maybe the best in the league last year and he will be right there at the top of the list again this season.” But, as steady as Hines was at shortstop, five Lumberjacks saw time at second base last season with only Ryan Priest – who will likely be the opening day left fielder – returning from that group. But it did not take junior transfer Michael Haynes long to emerge as the likely starter with Hines. A solid offensive player a year ago at Temple College, Haynes blew the SFA coaches away with his defensive ability and can play anyspot to the left of first base. “He has one of the quickest releases I have seen of any infielder and our defense behind our pitching staff will be drastically better with him back there,” Cardenas said. Giving Cardenas some depth on the infield are freshmen Jordan Lewis and Rene Moreda. Both are coming off of strong senior seasons in high school with Lewis having earned District 9-5A Offensive Player of the Year honors for Dallas’ W.T. White High School. CORNER INFIELD The ‘Jacks had one of the best first basemen in the SLC last year in Sean Meyers who nearly became only the second player in the history of SFA baseball to hit .400 for a season. This year Cardenas knew it was going to be imperative to find someone to come in and fill STEPHEN F. AUSTIN LUMBERJACKS • 2010 BASEBALL MEDIA GUIDE

2010 OUTLOOK • INFIELDERS/OUTFIELDERS/DESIGNATED HITTER the big shoes that Meyers had left behind after his all-conference campaign. Enter 6-7 Darren Crabtree to fill those shoes. The younger brother of former SFA outfielder Kevin Crabtree, Darren brings a lefthanded bat that ranked near the top of the nation in the junior college ranks in batting average and RBI all of last year. He also nearly got Temple College to the Junior College World Series, falling just one win short. Crabtree will be backed up at first by 6-4, 220-pound freshman Max Lamantia, who is very highly regarded by the SFA coaching staff for both his offensive and defensive prowess.

PROJECTED OUTFIELDERS/DH

Garrett Smith • JR • CF • An aggressive base runner that will slide into the top of the ‘Jacks order and roam center field in 2010.

Bo Coffman • SR • RF • A good defensive outfielder that has power to all fields from the left side. Will be expected to be more of a run-producing threat in 2010.

Across the diamond is where the ‘Jacks also had a revolving door with six players having manned the hot corner in 2009. This year the spot remains open, but Cardenas has a pair of frontrunners for the spot in transfer Bobby Loveless and sophomore Just McAninch.

Ryan Priest • SR • LF

Loveless comes to Nacogdoches after two years in the junior college ranks, following a stellar high school career where he set nearly every hitting record at Friendswood High School and will provide an immediate power threat. As for McAninch, he came on midway through the year in 2009 to be a reliable right-handed bat off the bench as a true freshman and with a frame that should develop well, and with his above-average defensive skills he should be in line to take the next step forward in 2010.

Justin Long • JR • DH/OF

• An aggressive hitter that cemeted spot in SFA outfield midway through junior season and has the ‘Jacks coaches excited about what he can do with a full season in the lineup.

• Gives the ‘Jacks another option in the outfield, but thrives at the plate with plenty of extra-base power.

OUTFIELD/DESIGNATED HITTER It will be an odd sight for Lumberjack fans to not see Zach Gardner patrolling center field, but those thoughts should dissipate quickly as Cardenas believes that his latest recruiting class not only yielded the SFA centerfielder for today, but also for tomorrow.

Before pitching coach Chad Massengale made his way to SFA he spent some time in his hometown at Weatherford College where he watched Garrett Smith set a school record with 35 stolen bases in 38 tries and hit over .400 for the Coyotes. A few months later, he had Smith on his way to SFA. “Garrett is certainly someone that we feel can step in and really help us out immediately,” Cardenas said. “He has some of the best baseball instincts I have ever seen on the bases and I told him when he got here that if he did not steal 40 bases this season it is because he just wasn’t on base enough.” Behind Smith will be freshman Cole Popper from Houston Second Baptist Academy, who just moved to center field as a senior in high school. Cardenas says he possesses all of the raw tools and athleticism to be a standout in the outfield after earning TAPPS first team all-state honors. The 2010 corner outfield spots will begin as they finished in 2009 – with Bo Coffman in right field and Ryan Priest in left field. Coffman did not live up to high expectations in his junior year but still managed to lead the team in walks and was third in doubles in addition to playing outstanding defense in right field. “I think Bo was disappointed in the way 2009 turned out for him, but to his credit he has worked extremely hard in the off-season to prepare himself for this year,” Cardenas said. “With that hard work and his natural ability I don’t see why this year should not be a turnaround year for him, and we need him to be because we look at him as a guy that will be a very productive element.” Priest almost accidentally took over the left field spot in 2009 after spending half of the season as strictly a pitcher. Due to a shortage of players on the bus for a midweek single game at Louisiana-Lafayette, Cardenas decided to let Priest hit for himself in addition to getting the start on the mound. Priest responded with a pair of hits and a home run, and then proceeded to get at least one hit in each of his first 11 starts in the lineup, eventually snagging the everyday left field job. “It was funny how Ryan got the job, but it worked out not only for us but for him,” Cardenas said. “He closed out the year as probably the hottest hitter we had and was really a mainstay in our lineup for the last half of the season.” With those three likely to see the majority of the playing time in the outfield it is hard to see where at-bats are going to come for the rest of the remaining outfielders, but depth is a luxury that Cardenas has this season with Justin Long, Patrick Gratzke and Chase Weir there to pick up the slack should anyone fall. Long has provided a steady left-handed bat in his two seasons in the field and finally started to show some power as a redshirt sophomore. He will likely get most of his at-bats at designated hitter, but he also played 36 games in the outfield in 2009. Gratzke comes in from Cisco Junior College where he hit .341 with five home runs last season, and Weir is a local Nacogdoches product that will provide the ‘Jacks with some right-handed power after sitting out last season.

PLAYING CAREER

He has also served as a head coach in the Texas Collegiate League in both 2006 and 2007, earning TCL Coach of the Year honors in 2007 after leading the Wichita Falls Roughnecks to the Rogers Hornsby Division title. That season he not only tutored the league’s player of the year, but also the league’s overall batting champion. Before entering the collegiate ranks, Cardenas spent five seasons as a head coach in the high school ranks in both Texas and Oklahoma. He landed his first head coaching stint at Colbert High School in Colbert, Okla., where he guided his teams to district championships in each of his three seasons. Twice in that stint he led Colbert to the Class 2A semi-finals in 1999 and 2001. Overall, eight of his players would go on to play at the collegiate level. Cardenas earned his share of accolades while in Oklahoma, garnering the 2002 SEOBCA Eastern Region Coach of the Year award as well as the 2003 Bryan County Coach of the Year honor. The Amarillo, Texas, native returned to the Lone Star State in 2003 to take the reins of the Greenville High School program in Greenville, Texas, before eventually making his way to Nacogdoches. While in Greenville, another six players moved on to the college ranks under his watch, including SFA infielder Gabriel Garcia-Serrano. Cardenas was an All-Jayhawk Conference performer for Seward County Community College in 1989 before moving to TCU where he was an All-Southwest Conference selection. While in Fort Worth, he earned team MVP and GTE Academic All-American honors in 1993 for the Horned Frogs. On top of that, in 1993 he was also named the Panhandle Sports Hall of Fame Player of the Year.

Under Connally’s instruction the ‘Jacks led the Southland in home runs in 2007, mashing 73 to set a new school record. Nearly every SFA offensive record has been claimed by one of Connally’s players in the last four seasons. Prior to coming to Nacogdoches, Connally spent three seasons as an assistant baseball coach focusing on hitting and fielding at the Trinity Valley School in Fort Worth, Texas, under head coach Johnny Miller. While there he was able to tutor a pair of future collegiate players including Louisville shortstop John Dao, and Texas Tech catcher Clayton Snodgrass.

Massengale made an immediate impact on the SFA pitching staff as Lumberjack pithcers lowered their opponent’s batting average nearly 20 points and allowed a full run per game less than just one year before. On his watch Richard Folmer and Erich Lehmann were also each named to the all-Southland Conference teams with Folmer setting a new SFA school record and tying for the league lead with 12 saves in 13 opportunities. Lehmann also made huge strides under Massengale’s tutelage, posting his lowest ERA since his Freshman All-American season of 2006 and dropping his ERA 1.2 runs per game. The ‘Jacks also got a big payoff at the end of the season as three pitchers were selected by MLB teams as Chris Court, Folmer and Erik Gregersen were all taken in the MLB Draft. Before SFA, Massengale spent the 2008 season at Weatherford College after three seasons in East Texas at Texarkana College from 2005-2007. While at WC, Massengale’s Coyotes led Region V in team ERA, posting a 4.63 ERA - no other team in the league had an ERA under 5.06 - as they finished the season with a 36-17 record. One of his pupils, Josh Turner, earned first team all-conference honors after picking up 10 wins with a 3.57 ERA. Before his time at WC, the Weatherford, Texas, native spent three successful seasons at Texarkana JC where he helped the Bulldogs compile a 128-40 three-year record. The team reached the Junior College World Series his first year and the regional tournament each of the next two seasons. While there he saw a number of students selected by major league clubs including David Welch and Jamie Richmond in the 2005 draft, and Maurice Bankston in the 2007 draft. Massengale also put together a solid playing career, earning conference Pitcher of the Year honors as a sophomore at Vernon College after being an all-district pitcher for the Weatherford High School Kangaroos. After Vernon, he finished his final two seasons at Texas State in 2000 and 2001. While a Bobcat, he was part of the 2000 Texas State team that won the second of back-to-back Southland Conference Tournaments and upset host Baylor in the first round of the Waco Regional. His 3.09 ERA in 2000 still ranks in the top 10 all-time at Texas State, and his seven saves over his two-year career there are tied for fourth. Massengale and his wife, Sarah, were married in June of 2009 and reside in Nacogdoches.

2009 LUMBERJACK SENIOR CLASS

SEASON RECAP

In Johnny Cadenas’ first season leading the program, the ‘Jacks made it back to the Southland Conference Tournament after a one-year absence in one of the toughest year’s the Southland Conference has seen in the last decade. It wasn’t an easy road for SFA, however, as the ‘Jacks struggled out of the gate and dropped 12 of their first 15 games which included an 0-5 start in league play with series losses to Central Arkansas and Northwestern State. But SFA then began to build some momentum starting with a pair of run-rule wins over Nicholls State at Jaycees Field, and then salvaging a game with a comeback win over eventual league champion Texas State. The ‘Jacks then scraped out six wins in their next eight tries put SFA back in the mix for a tournament spot heading into an important road series in Lake Charles against McNeese State. Erich Lehmann and Chris Court teamed up to get SFA a win in a game that was pieced together over two days thanks to downpours in the area. SFA was seemingly in control of the series midway through the Sunday doubleheader, before fate dealt the ‘Jacks a bad hand and allowed the Cowboys to pick up a pair of wins and take command of the league’s final tournament spot.

2009 SENIOR CLASS

Sean Meyers: Took over at first base midway through the 2008 season and proceeded to earn all-conference honors in 2009, with his .398 average in 2009 being the second best ever at SFA. Ranks in the top five at SFA in all-time hits, doubles and batting average. Zach Gardner: A four-year starter in center field that set SFA career records in games played, starts, hits, runs scored stolen bases and doubles. Erich Lehmann: A two-time all-confernence and 2006 freshman all-America selection, he holds all-time and single-season records at SFA for wins, innings pitched and strikeouts. Erik Gregersen: Most consistent arm on the team and led SFA’s starters in innings pitched, wins and ERA as a senior while landing in the career top 10 in multiple categories at SFA.

But to SFA’s credit the ‘Jacks fought their way out of the corner over the next two weeks to get back into the drivers seat for a trip to Corpus Christi, starting with a non-conference win at Houston which marked the first time SFA had ever won at Cougar Field. Richard Folmer then picked up saves in each of the next three contests as SFA swept UT-Arlington at home and then managed to take two of three from Sam Houston to open up a 3.5 game lead over the Cowboys. That proved to be enough of a cushion for SFA to back into the tournament despite dropping six of their final eight games of the regular season. The ‘Jacks were then matched up with No. 1 Texas State in the first round and could not get past SLC Pitcher of the Year Kane Holbrooks. The ‘Jacks were then eliminated the following day by UT-Arlington, marking the first time in five tries on the year that SFA had fallen to the Mavs. Three SFA seniors were named to the all-conference team, including Erich Lehmann, (second team), Sean Meyers (third team) and Richard Folmer (third team). It was also a record-setting season with Zach Gardner, Folmer and Lehmann each setting school records in numerous categories.

Brian Ferguson: Had a breakout senior campaign, hitting .332 with 37 RBI, six triples, 11 doubles and a pair of home runs out of the cleanup spot. Jeffrey Kello: Lettered two seasons for SFA, hitting three home runs and six doubles and sporting one of the best defensive gloves on the team in his two years on the roster. Trent Blanchard: A solid right-handed bat off the bench, Blanchard spent his last two seasons in Nacogdoches Richard Folmer: Was SFA closer in final three seasons of career and was selected by Kansas City in the 2009 draft after setting SFA’s all-time saves record with 21 for his career and earning all-conference honors after 12 saves in 2009.

QUICK HITTERS

HINES’ HIT STREAK: Tanner Hines closed out the season

hotter than arguably any hitter in the Southland Conference, getting a hit in 20 of his last 21 games, including a 19-game hit streak in that span. His bunt single in the regular-season finale gave him a hit in 19 consecutive games, which set a new record at SFA, surpassing Steven Hill’s old record of 18 games in 2007.

RECORD SETTERS: With 2009 serving as the final year for

SFA’s first four-year senior class it was logical that a few records might be set in the process, and there certainly were. Senior Zach Gardner tied the single-season record at SFA with 18 doubles, but became the school’s all-time leader in hits, games played starts, at-bats, runs scored, doubles and stolen bases. Meanwhile, Erich Lehmann and Richard Folmer were setting recors themselves on the mound with Lehmann becoming the school’s all-time leader in strikeouts and innings pitched, while also entering the season as the all-time leader in wins. Folmer also notched a dozen saves in 2009, which set a single-season record at SFA.

IMPORTANT 2009 DATES

March 21: Erich Lehmann became the all-time strikeout king at SFA with six strikeouts in 7.0 innings of work as the ‘Jacks runruled Nicholls 11-0 one day after run-ruling the Colonels 13-2 in the series opener. It was the first time in recorded history SFA had run-ruled a team in consecutive games, and Gabriel Garcia-Serrano also set an SFA single-game record with four stolen bases. March 29: Joe Staley hit a three-run home run in the top of the sixth inning to put the ‘Jacks out in front and Richard Folmer tossed the final three innings for th save as the ‘Jacks avoided a three-game sweep at eventual league-champion Texas State. April 5: SFA gets a 4-for-4 performance from Brian Ferguson, including a go-ahead, bases-loaded single in the eighth inning that snapped a 7-7 tie and pushed SFA to a series win over UTSA.

THREE ’JACKS NAMED ALL-SLC: SFA first baseman Sean Meyers and pitchers Erich Lehmann and Richard Folmer were all named to the all-Southland Conference teams at the conclusion of the season. Meyers hovered around the .400 mark throughout the season, eventually finishing at a .398 clip to earn third team honors behind SLC Player of the Year Paul Goldschmidt of Texas State and Sam Houston’s Nick Zaleski, who nearly claimed the league’s batting crown. Lehmann was a second-team selection after posting a 7-4 record and one of best K/BB ratio, while Folmer’s league-leading 12 saves was enough to land him on the third team. DRAFTED JACKS: Three Lumberjacks had their names called at the end of the 2009 season by MLB teams in the June draft, with first-year ‘Jack Chris Court being the first of the three when the Boston Red Sox selected him in the 23rd round. Richard Folmer was then taken by the Kansas City Royals just two rounds later, and Erik Gregersen also had his time called for the second consecuive season by the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim in the 37th round.

April 24-27: Erich Lehmann picked up his fourth straight win with four strikeouts with 6.0 innings of work and the ‘Jacks used four runs in the first inning to get a series-opening win over UTA on its way to a sweep of the Mavs. May 1: Ryan Priest made a game-saving catch, robbing Sam Houston’s Ryan Mooney of a home run that would have put the Bearkats in front late in the game after they finally got to SFA starter Erich Lehmann, who had opened the game with 6.1 no-hit innings. The ‘Jacks held on to win the game, 3-2, and then won its first 1-0 decision since 2007 in the opener of the Saturday doubleheader with the Kats, putting them on the verge of clinching its second-ever SLC Tournament berth. May 9: One day after dropping its SLC Tournament magic number to just one with a win at Southeastern La., the ‘Jacks got some help when UTSA crushed McNeese State 20-6 and clinched SFA’s second-ever berth in the Southland Conference Tournament.

SFA


THIS IS SFA Like the towering pine trees that encircle its campus, Stephen F. Austin State University has grown over time from its tiny beginnings to a strong, independent institution that can stand proudly among its peers. And, like those majestic evergreens, SFA continues to strive for bigger and better things, always reaching toward the sun as it spreads its branches and drops its seeds all over the state of Texas. SFA has its roots in education, a strong foundation that has served the university well over the years and remains a point of pride for East Texas’ premier four-year school. The university was first chartered by the Texas Legislature in 1917, but further progress was put on hold until after World War I. Following the war, funding legislation for the school was signed in 1921, and Nacogdoches was selected as the site that same year. Two years later, on Sept. 18, 1923, the first classes at Stephen F. Austin State Teachers’ College were held. Nearly a century later, the university ranks as one of the top teacher preparation institutions in the state and has attained national recognition for several of its other instructional programs. With six colleges of instruction, SFA

offers more than 80 undergraduate majors and more than 120 areas of study. Graduate students have nearly 50 degree programs from which to choose, including two doctoral courses of study. Mor ethan 85 percent of professors at and instructors at SFA hold the highest degree in their field. With a studentto-faculty ratio of 20:1, SFA continues to demonstrate that it is committed to making sure each student gets the personal attention he or she requires to succeed. Enrollment for the 2007 fall semester was 11,607. As part of a push to increase enrollment and retention rates, the university’s admission requirements recently were raised. The strategy is already paying dividends with increasing numbers and a student body that is better prepared for college life. According to fall 2007 figures, the average composite ACT score for firsttime freshmen at SFA exceeds the Texas average. The 412-acre main campus is part of the homestead of historic Texas patriot and U.S. senator Thomas J. Rusk. The university also maintains the 490-acre Walter Todd Agricultural Research Center for beef, swine and poultry

production, as well as an experimental forest and a forestry field station on Lake Sam Rayburn. In addition, the physics department operates the second-largest observatory in the Central Time Zone. The facility is one of only a few in the world of its size that permit regular use by advanced undergraduates and graduate students. The largest telescope at the observatory, a 41-inch telescope, is the second-largest in both the state of Texas and the Central Time Zone. As SFA closes in on its 85th birthday, the school continues to grow and evolve. Improvements — from a new student center to new housing facilities to a new student recreation center — are being made on campus yearly to enhance the student experience. SFA has produced an alumni base exceeding 100,000 members, a number that will continue to swell as the university’s growth rate accelerates. Come grow with us.

NACOGDOCHES When Spanish trader Antonio Gil Y’Barbo established Nacogdoches as the first permanent settlement in Texas, he designated the town center as the intersection of El Camino Real and El Calle del Norte — the meeting place of the region’s major east-west and northsouth thoroughfares. Some 220 years later, Nacogdoches continues to be a major intersection — only now the town is a junction where a rich past meets a promising future. Nacogdoches is known for playing several key roles in the history of Texas and served as the backdrop or starting point for some of the biggest moments in the story of the state of Texas. Originally settled by a Caddo Indian tribe between 1250 and 1450, Nacogdoches saw French, Spanish and Mexican rule before the Lone Star Republic was established. Some of the first shots of the Texas Revolution against the Mexican government were fired in Nacogdoches. Town citizens, both Mexican and Anglos, attacked and drove out the local Mexican garrison in The Battle of Nacogdoches

in 1832. Townsfolk later helped outfit a company of volunteer soldiers from New Orleans who went on to fight in the Texas Revolution, some of whom lost their lives in the historic battle at the Alamo. The town’s history took a new turn in 1923 with the opening of Stephen F. Austin State Teachers College. The small college has since grown to a major university, and the town has grown to a population of approximately 30,000, with the amenities and entertainment options of a modern city. Nacogdoches is also located a mere 140 miles northeast of Houston and just 180 miles southeast of Dallas. Both cities offer excellent shopping and dining opportunities, as well as clubs from all four major professional team sports. Small enough to provide the safety and security of a small town, but large enough to offer many of the conveniences of a large city, Nacogdoches is as unique as it sounds. Texas’ oldest town continues to grow and prosper as its rich heritage guides it into its sixth century of existence.

Fast Facts • Nacogdoches is widely recognized as the “Oldest Town in Texas,” with some estimates placing the first Caddo Indian settlement in the area as early as 1250 AD. • As of the 2000 census, Nacogdoches’ population was 29,914. • The town encompasses a total area of 25.3 square miles. • While the state of Texas is known for the “Six Flags” that have flown over it, Nacogdoches claims those six, plus three more, a fact recognized each year with the town’s annual Nine Flags Festival. • Nacogdoches County is the top blueberry producer in Texas. The city hosts an annual Blueberry Festival each June. • Nacogdoches is the home town of Clint Dempsey, formerly of MLS fame, now playing soccer for Fulham FC and the U.S. National Team.

Did You Know? The first oil well in the state of Texas was drilled in Nacogdoches in 1859.

STEPHEN F . AUSTIN Stephen F. Austin State University is named for one of the legends of Texas history. Stephen Fuller Austin, known as “The Father of Texas,” is recognized as the founder of Anglo-American Texas. Following his graduation from Transylvania University in Kentucky at the age of 16, Austin took over the family mining business in the Missouri Territory from his father. In the coming years, he would serve as an ensign in the Missouri militia and a Missouri legislator, as well as a circuit court judge in the Arkansas Territory. He went on to study law in New Orleans. During this time, Austin’s father, Moses, obtained a land grant from the Spanish government with the intent of settling 300 Catholic U.S. families in the Texas Territory. When the elder Austin died in 1821, Stephen picked up where his father left off, but found the going more difficult than anticipated. With the Mexican uprising against Spanish rule throwing the fledgling colonial government into turmoil, Austin’s status as empresario came into question.

Austin made multiple pilgrimages to the Mexican capital to plead his case and was rewarded by having his father’s original agreement with the Spanish government honored. In 1825, Austin brought the first 300 families into Texas to settle. Through cunning diplomacy and cautious political maneuvering, Austin negotiated contracts to bring another 900 settlers to Texas between 1825 and 1829. By 1832, Texas’ colonial population numbered 11,000. The growing colonial populous became increasingly dissatisfied with Mexican rule. Austin again traveled to Mexico City and gained several important concessions from the ruling authority, but after growing frustrated with the slow pace of change, Austin penned a letter encouraging Texans to unite and form their own independent local governments. For this he was arrested and spent several months in prison before returning, in 1835, to a Texas on the brink of revolution. The war for Texas independence began

in October of that year. While Austin had counseled his countrymen not to take up arms against Mexico until all diplomatic efforts had been exhausted, once the first shots in the war had sounded, his patriotism shone brightly. Austin is remembered for his firm and decided voice, speaking words of encouragement and hope during the darkest days of the revolution, as well as his laborious travels in the United States to obtain needed support for his struggling countrymen. Following the decisive Texas victory in the Battle of San Jacinto on April 21, 1836, Austin was named secretary of state under Sam Houston, the first president of the Republic of Texas. Unfortunately, his time in office would be short. Austin became ill in December of that year and died of pneumonia on Dec. 27, 1836. He was 43 years old. Upon hearing of Austin’s death, Houston issued an official statement proclaiming: “The Father of Texas is no more; the first pioneer of the wilderness has departed.”

CAMPUS LIVING Stephen F. Austin’s athletes have several unique opportunities when it comes to on-campus housing. In 2006, the university opened two brand-new apartment-style residence halls that boast the latest innovations in campus living anywhere in the United States. Lumberjack Lodge and Lumberjack Village both offer fully furnished units with private bedrooms and kitchen units. The Lodge, the first of the two facilities to open, is a four-story brick facility located conveniently near East College Cafeteria, Ralph W. Steen Library and Homer Bryce Stadium. The Lodge offers two-bedroom/one-bath or fourbedroom/two-bath units. Each unit has a kitchenette with a full-sized refrigerator, microwave and double sink. The building offers two laundry facilities per floor complete with television viewing areas, as well as a game room with pool

table and two conference rooms. The Village is the newest housing facility on campus. It is located in close proximity to the Pattillo Student Center, Health and Physical Education Complex and the new Student Recreation Center. Like the Lodge, the Village is a four-story brick building, but it has exclusively twobedroom/one-bath units. In addition to all the amenities found in the Lodge, the Village offers two types of units. Unit A consists of the same kitchenette setup as found in all the rooms at the Lodge. Unit B provides a full kitchen and a washer and dryer for personal use. In addition, the Village has an in-house convenience store for its residents, as well as outdoor recreation areas. Both Lumberjack Lodge and Lumberjack Village are co-ed halls with 24-hour visitation. Through an agreement with the Residence Life Department, the

CAMPUS DINING

The recent explosion of on-campus construction at Stephen F. Austin has provided students with numerous new opportunities in housing, learning and recreation. These changes may have had the greatest impact in the area of campus dining, where the university has gone from five on-campus eating locations to 15 in less than a year. The two primary on-campus eateries have remained intact. East College Marketplace and Student Center RFoC (Real Food on Campus) are both allyou-can-eat buffet-style facilities. Grand Central Station is located on the first floor of the newly renovated Baker Pattillo Student Center. East College is a favorite among student-athletes because of its close proximity to the athletics training facilities, as well as Hall 20 and Lumberjack Lodge. The university also has added an expanded Pizza Hut station, as well as a Wing Street location at East College Cafeteria. Just to the north, on the ground floor of the Ralph W. Steen Library, students have a good outlet for quick

study breaks. Last year, an Einstein Bros. Bagels café was added at the library. The chain specializes in bagels and other breakfast food, as well as small deli sandwiches. The new Baker Pattillo Student Center offers more variety in dining choices in a contained location than any other place in town. Aside from Grand Central Station cafeteria, students have the option of frequenting several different restaurant chains. The Student Center houses Chick-fil-A, Starbucks, Brickoven Pizzeria, Panda Express, Freshens Yogurt, Tortilla Fresca, Bleecker Street Café and a convenience store. All students who live in campus residence halls — with the exception of those housed in the B Units of Lumberjack Village — are required to purchase a meal plan each semester. These meal plans provide a set number of meals per week that can be used at the on-campus dining locations. Meal plans can also be purchased for students who live off campus.

BAKER PATTILLO STUDENT CENTER In the past three years, Stephen F. Austin State University has seen numerous construction projects and facility upgrades completed on campus. But the crowning achievement in this campus improvement campaign is the Baker Pattillo Student Center, opened in the spring of 2007. The $32 million renovation to what once was called the University Center began more than six years ago with a vision proposed by student leaders. SFA students now have access to a facility that rivals any in the region. The most recognizable portion of the project is the 95,000-square-foot addition that houses a three-story atrium and lounge area. The addition includes a multi-outlet food court and convenience store, as well as a 383-seat movie theatre and Commercial Bank of Texas banking center.

The upper two floors of the addition house offices for student government and student organizations, as well as other campus offices. Television rooms and study lounges are located throughout the facility. Some holdovers from the previous University Center include the Barnes and Noble University Book Store and Grand Central Station, the largest dining outlet on campus. The upper floor of the original building still houses the Grand Ballroom and Twilight Ballroom, as well as numerous lounges, suites, offices and meeting rooms. Just after its grand opening in April of 2007, the SFA Board of Regents approved a motion to name the student center for Dr. Baker Pattillo, SFA president and a key figure in the completion of this dream facility.

Did You Know? The Pattillo Student Center is one of only four structures on campus named for SFA presidents. The others are Johnson Coliseum, Steen Library, and the Boynton Building.

STRENGTH AND CONDITIONING It takes a special kind of athlete to earn a roster spot at a Division I institution. At Stephen F. Austin, the strength and conditioning staff is committed to taking those special athletes to an even higher level. Under the direction of veteran strength coach Dan Eason, SFA studentathletes take part in sport-specific programs to increase their strength, speed and endurance. The strength and conditioning program is based in the Jimmy W. Murphy Wellness Center — an 8,000-square-foot facility located at the southwest corner of Homer Bryce Stadium. The facility is conveniently located near the stadium and athletics field house and provides SFA studentathletes with the latest in weight and aerobic training equipment. The Murphy Center houses a cardio room with three treadmills, two total-

body elliptical machines and seven stationary bikes; a mixing room for NCAA-compliant supplements; eight Olympic weight-lifting platforms; four dual-sided power racks configured for multiple lifts and exercises; a total body Hammer Strength circuit; two glute-ham machines; two reverse hyper machines; a selection of dumbbells ranging in weight from 5 to 150 pounds; as well as a variety of miscellaneous equipment for the total development of student-athletes’ bodies. The SFA strength and conditioning program employs the services of Eason, as well as assistant strength and conditioning coach Brittany Burton. Eason and Burton oversee the fitness programs for the entire athletic department, while three graduate assistants each work specifically with various teams.

ATHLETIC TRAINING The Sports Medicine program at Stephen F. Austin seeks to provide the finest preventative education, medical care and physical rehabilitation possible for all SFA student-athletes. To that end, the program employs a state-of-theart training center and one of the best athletic training staffs around. Under the direction of veteran trainer Sandy Miller — a member of both the Southwest Athletic Trainers’ Association Hall of Fame and the National Association of Athletic Trainers’ Hall of Fame — the sports medicine staff provides the best in care for SFA’s student-athletes while providing a hands-on educational program for athletic training students. In addition to Miller, the department employs three accredited full-time assistant trainers, three accredited graduate assistants, 16 graduate students working toward their master’s degrees in

athletic training through SFA’s accredited entry-level graduate athletic training program, and 12 undergraduate students in the athletic training internship program. The sports medicine program is housed in the 5,300-square-foot athletic training facility located behind the field house at the north end of Homer Bryce Stadium. The training room has the staff and facilities to accomodate several student-athletes at once, with a wide range of equipment capable of meeting the needs to treat almost any injury. Features of the training facility include a pair of dual HydroWorx pools that measure seven feet, six inches square with a water depth of three feet, nine inches. One pool is configured for cold therapy, while the other employs heat. The pools are used for enhancing recovery, as well as aquatic rehabilitation.

Athletic Training Staff Notable Achievements • In addition to being a member of two athletic training halls of fame, head athletic trainer Sandy Miller has had the opportunity to serve at many national and international events: • 1990 Goodwill Games • U.S. Olympic Training Center • 1995 Track & Field World Championships • Miller was honored as a Most Distinguished Athletic Trainer in 1999, and has served as a member of the board of directors of the NATA. The athletic training center also houses a set of SciFit exercise equipment that includes an upright bike, all-body ergometer and treadmill.

ACADEMIC ASSISTANCE Under the direction of assistant athletics director for student services Amber Burdge, the SFA athletics department’s student services program offers support to student-athletes for nearly all phases of their lives away from the playing field. The mission of student services is to ensure that all studentathletes are aware of the resources available to them — both within the department of athletics and through the university at large — and to make sure that SFA’s student-athletes are utilizing these resources to maximize their potential, both in the classroom and in day-to-day life. Academics is the largest piece of the student services pie. The student services staff, which consists of Burdge, academic services assistant Katy Springfield, two graduate assistants and up to eight student assistants, is charged with overseeing and managing the academic health of more than 350 student-athletes at SFA. Burdge and her staff utilize a software program called Student Athlete Monitoring System (SAMS) to keep abreast of the big picture. The SAMS software uses feedback directly from

SFA professors to update the athletics department with vital information like student-athlete grades, attendance and academic progress. Using the information provided by SAMS, as well as personal interaction with the student-athletes, student services can fine-tune the extra instructional opportunities to fit each student’s needs. University options available to all students include tutoring and student instruction through the library’s Academic Assistance and Resource Center (AARC). Thanks to the university’s friendly 20:1 studentto-instructor ratio, additional personal assistance from professors is typically also available. In-house assistance from the student support staff is always readily available for student-athletes and can be tweaked even further to fit the unique needs of each individual. Burdge and her staff act as liaisons between the department and the university faculty, cultivating the long-standing relationship between the two. Student services also provides individualized academic counseling, including course selection, scheduled,

degree programs and eligibility, as well as offering hand-picked tutors to fit the needs of student-athletes. Student-athletes are encouraged to make use of the Academic Services building, located behind the athletics field house at Homer Brice Stadium. The facility is manned by student services staff and is open six days per week for a total of nearly 70 hours a week. The building houses several individual study stations with partitions for semi-privacy and 15 computer work stations with inhouse printing and copying capabilities. The facility also offers laptop computers for student-athletes to take on road trips for completing course work during the season. In addition to the main area, there are two smaller workrooms available for tutoring or group study. The student services team also works in conjunction with the CHAMPS Life Skills program to help promote improved study skills and time management practices, as well as health and wellness through programs like drug and alcohol education.

Did You Know? From the fall of 2006 to the summer of 2007, 50 SFA studentathletes received their degrees. In the fall of 2007, SFA had 151 student-athletes on the Athletic Director’s Honor Roll, including 50 Dean’s List honorees and 24 selections to the President’s List.

TRAINING FOR LIFE The Stephen F. Austin athletics department seeks to give its studentathletes every advantage they need to succeed both on the field and in the classroom. But the ultimate goal of training in both these arenas is to give our Lumberjacks a leg up in the game of life. To that end, the department strives to provide SFA student-athletes with the resources and support needed to prepare them for success in their lives after collegiate athletics. The life training starts with a freshman orientation class called SFA 101. The course is available for any first-year SFA student and seeks to ease the transition into life on the SFA campus. SFA 101 courses meet twice weekly for an hour each meeting, and the student receives a letter grade worth one semester hour of credit. But the gains of successfully completing the course go far beyond mere credit earned toward graduation. SFA 101 presents and reinforces skills and information that are key to a smooth passage from high school or junior college to life at a four-year institution. Primary topics include: academic integrity, accessing and evaluating

information, campus and community service opportunities and obligations, college classroom learning strategies, overview of university resources, time management, money management, the true value of a college education, university rules and procedures and working successfully with peers, faculty and staff. The course also provides students with information about SFA’s history and traditions. The course is taught by handpicked faculty and staff members who are dedicated to helping students succeed. The athletics department offers two course sections, proctored by administrators. Assistant athletic trainer and senior woman administrator Loree McCary teaches one section, while assistant athletic director for academic services Amber Burdge oversees the other section. In addition to the required curriculum for SFA 101, the department’s classes also cover extra topics, including: career exploration, team-building exercises, alcohol education, personal health and safety and note-taking and exam preparation. In addition to her role as an SFA 101

instructor, McCary coordinates the SFA athletics department’s CHAMPS Life Skills program. CHAMPS (Challenging Athletes’ Minds for Personal Success) is an initiative of the NCAA Foundation to create a total development program for student-athletes. The goal is to send student-athletes into life after college with the knowledge and skills they need to succeed on their own in the real world. In her first year as senior woman administrator, McCary took SFA’s CHAMPS program in a new director, offering multiple educational opportunities and chances for studentathletes to come together and build skills for the future. Program topics from the 2007-08 year included: stress management, personal safety and selfdefense, violence prevention, dressing for success and interviewing techniques and financial planning. The program is set to expand next year with curriculum aimed at: nutrition and cooking, money management while in school, life after athletics, drug and alcohol education and personal and social development.

TRADITIONS

The students and faculty at Stephen F. Austin State University have bred several strong traditions since the school’s founding, and, as SFA closes in on its 85th birthday, new traditions are born almost yearly. It’s no coincidence that nearly all of SFA’s rituals and customs have ties to Lumberjack and Ladyjack athletics, a rallying point for school spirit since the university’s beginnings. The oldest campus tradition also is the most easily recognized one. Future students find it staring them in the faces before they set foot in an SFA classroom. When high schoolers tear open the envelope containing their letters of acceptance to the university, the first line boldly reads, “Congratulations! You’re a Lumberjack!” Since the university first opened its doors in 1923, SFA’s athletic teams and students in general have been known as the Lumberjacks. The nickname was chosen in an assembly held shortly after the institution officially opened classes. Students and faculty met to debate the merits of several potential nicknames, with the proponents of each choice leading cheers to rally support for their

90

proposed mascots. T.E. Ferguson — a professor of English at the time, whose name now adorns an academic building on campus — submitted “Lumberjacks,” a nickname he found appropriate for a university surrounded by the piney woods of Deep East Texas. The assembly agreed. With the arrival of the first women’s basketball team in the late 1930s, SFA’s female athletes took on the moniker of Ladyjacks, a nickname chosen by two of the campus’s pioneers in women’s athletics — Drs. Lucille Norton and June Irwin. One special SFA tradition earns national attention each year as the college football season winds down and bitter rivalries are hashed out all over the country. When the Lumberjack football team takes on rival Northwestern State, there are more than just bragging rights up for grabs. The two teams battle each year with the winner taking home the largest football trophy in the nation — Chief Caddo. The Chief is seven feet, six inches tall and weighs more than 320 pounds. Chief Caddo is in his late 40s, having been carved from a 2,000-pound black gum

log following the 1961 football game between the two teams. The statue is named to honor the Caddos — a Native American tribe indigenous to the area. As legend has it, a Caddo chief and his two sons are responsible for the settling of Nacogdoches and Natchitoches, La. — home to Northwestern State — each of which is recognized as the oldest settlement in its respective state. Anyone lucky enough to be on campus for an SFA victory over the Demons will have the chance to see the Lumberjack football team rally around the statue of Chief Caddo and celebrate the fact that he will reside in the Homer Bryce Stadium field house for the next calendar year. Following the game, if fans look to the south of the stadium, they’ll be able to see another important SFA tradition in action. After every SFA victory in any sport, at home or on the road, the university turns on a large purple light that sits atop the Garner tower, the tallest building on campus. The building’s roof remains illuminated all night to let all who see it know that their Lumberjacks or Ladyjacks were victorious.


TRADITIONS The light atop Garner can be seen all over campus, but another Lumberjack tradition can be heard — and sometimes felt — all over town. At every home football game, the SFA ROTC cadets man a 75 mm cannon dubbed “Ole Cotton.” From its station beyond the south end zone at Homer Bryce Stadium, the big gun puts an exclamation point on every SFA scoring strike, as the cadets fire off a round to rally the Lumberjacks and their fans. Speaking of fans, there is no shortage of ways for the Lumberjack faithful to get together and show their support for SFA athletes. Starting with the ’Jacks Back Pep Rally before the first home football game of the season, SFA fans crowd the commuter parking lot before every home game, as part of Lumberjack Alley, the biggest tailgate party in town. With local businesses, student organizations, and SFA alumni offering food, drink, games and fellowship, there’s a good time to be had by every Lumberjack fan. Homecoming week is full of opportunities for SFA students, fans and alumni to gather in support of their school. The Alumni Association

sponsors an alumni golf tournament, silent auction, benefit drawing and Duck Dash — a water race featuring rubber ducks — during the week. On game day, the main event leading up to Lumberjack Alley and the football game is a parade downtown. The night before the game, the SFA band and spirit squads lead a torchlight parade through campus and out to the intramural fields, where the torch is used to light SFA’s annual homecoming bonfire. A new tradition that also involves fire is the Burn Shirt program. Begun by the Student Activities Association in an effort to increase school spirit on campus, the Burn Shirt initiative encourages students to get rid of apparel that is branded with the logos and names of other universities. Students can trade other schools’ merchandise for an SFA T-shirt. The shirts are known as Burn Shirts, because, in the project’s formative days, the discarded apparel from other colleges was burned on a bonfire in a spirit rally setting. But in 2007, it was decided that a more productive use of the unwanted gear would be to donate it to local shelters and charitable organizations.

The idea remains the same, though, proclaimed in the words of the Burn Shirts: “Lumberjack Spirit Burns In My Soul!” One of the newest traditions on campus helps Lumberjacks identify one another long after they graduate and leave Nacogdoches behind. The SFA Mentor Ring is a specially designed ring that has been adopted as the university’s official class ring. More than just a piece of jewelry, the Mentor Ring comes with an SFA mentor for each student. These mentors ensure that the students’ last months at SFA are on the right track to graduation and beyond. Students receive their Mentor Rings in a ceremony called the Big Dip. At this ceremony, held in the middle of campus, students have their hands dipped in purple dye before being presented with their rings. Each of these customs and rituals plays its own role in making the SFA experience unique. Get involved, find your niche, and maybe you could be responsible for the next great Lumberjack tradition.

UNIVERSITY ADMINISTRATION DR. BAKER PATILLO University President Stephen F. Austin State University has been a major part of the life of Dr. Baker Pattillo for more than 40 years — first as a student, later as an administrator and now as president. After 27 years as vice president, Pattillo was named president by the SFA Board of Regents in January 2007. A longtime supporter of Lumberjack and Ladyjack athletics in his role as vice president for university affairs, Pattillo immediately voiced his intention to remain committed to the students. “My role has been to serve students and to attend to student needs; that role will now be expanded to all areas of the university,” Dr. Pattillo said following the board’s announcement. “However, students are the primary reason we are here, so I’ll be focusing on our continued efforts to improve recruitment and retention. I’m looking forward to this and will give my best to the university every day.” Prior to being named president, Dr. Pattillo was vice

president for university affairs, overseeing all athletics programs at SFA. During that time, Dr. Pattillo also served as the university’s institutional representative to the NCAA, and recently completed a term as president of the Southland Conference. A native of Arp, Texas, Dr. Pattillo began his professional career at SFA in 1966 when he was named assistant director of placement and financial aid. In 1970, he became director of placement and financial aid, serving until 1972 when he was named dean of student services. He was promoted to vice president for student affairs in July 1979 with the more comprehensive university affairs designation coming in 1982. A two-time graduate of Stephen F. Austin, Dr. Pattillo received his Bachelor of Science degree in 1965 and his Master of Education degree in 1966. He received his Ph.D. in educational administration from Texas A&M University in 1971. Dr. Pattillo and his wife, Janice, who is chair of the Department of Elementary Education and a professor of elementary education, have one daughter, Paige, an SFA graduate who graduated from law school at the University of Texas in May 2004. She was also the feature twirler with the Lumberjack and Longhorn bands. With a lifestyle that has been all SFA all the time, Pattillo continually makes a fresh commitment to help improve the university, not only for current and future students, but also for alumni and the Nacogdoches community.

football and men’s basketball, major renovations to the fieldhouse main meeting room, the varsity weight room and football offices have all been completed. A new $450,000 tennis pavilion to house the women’s team opened in the spring of 2008. New construction for baseball seating will start this fall along with the start of a new softball facility. Academic success is another point of emphasis for Hill. There were 198 SFA student-athletes who posted a 3.0 GPA or higher during the 2007-08 academic year with 48 receiving their degrees 13 with honors. Hill is also active on the national scene having been named to the Football Championship Subdivision Athletic Director’s Association committee representing the Southland Conference. In 2007 he received the General Robert R. Neyland Outstanding Athletic Director Award from the All-American Football Foundation. The Canadian, Texas, native began his SFA career as sports information director in 1987. Hill moved to assistant athletic director for business affairs in 1990 and became associate athletic director for internal affairs in 1998. Prior to joining SFA he spent 17 years in broadcasting. Both he and his wife, Brenda, are SFA graduates. Their family includes daughter Alix and her husband Matt of Dallas; son Stuart and his wife Kathy and a grandson, Blake, all of Columbia, MD.

INTERCOLLEGIATE ATHLETICS COUNCIL

The Intercollegiate Athletics Council, as a standing committee of the faculty senate, serves as an advisory panel to the Department of Intercollegiate Athletics. Its mission is to maintain intercollegiate athletics programs that benefit all students — student-athletes and non-student-athletes — and which are supportive of the purposes and goals of the university. The NCAA Constitution requires that a majority of the members of the Intercollegiate Athletics Council be regular faculty members or administrators of the university. The faculty members of the Intercollegiate Athletics Council are appointed by the vice president for university affairs. The council consists of nine members — eight faculty, staff or members of the community, and the director of athletics, who serves as an ex-officio member of the council. Faculty members serve staggered three-year terms, which begin with the new academic year. Members may be reappointed to serve additional terms. The chair of the Intercollegiate Athletics Council is a faculty representative appointed by the vice president for university affairs. The council reports as requested to the faculty senate. The Intercollegiate Athletics Council meets monthly during the academic year with the director of athletics to review the operations of the department, assist in the development of new policy, and consult on other matters as related to athletics.

THE SOUTHLAND CONFERENCE • ABOUT THE SOUTHLAND

THE SOUTHLAND CONFERENCE

In an era of considerable change in intercollegiate athletics, the Southland Conference continues to be a model of innovation, stability and consistent achievement as it celebrates the academic and athletic accomplishments of its member institutions. What began as a small gathering of college administrators over 45 years ago, the Southland Conference has transformed itself into a dynamic and respected consortium of 12 member universities in three states. Beginning with a historic meeting of five institutions in Dallas on March 15, 1963, which included current members Lamar University (then Lamar State College of Technology) and the University of Texas at Arlington (then Arlington State College), the Southland Conference set on an extraordinary course that has proven successful well into its fifth decade of existence. On July 1, 2006, the Southland Conference commemorated another milestone as the league membership reached 12, marking the largest configuration for the organization. The addition of the University of Central Arkansas and Texas A&MCorpus Christi expanded the Southland into the Little Rock metro area and into the eighth largest city in Texas. UCA and A&M-Corpus Christi enhanced the Southland Conference in innumerable ways, including athletic and academic successes, strong and principled leadership, and strong fan support and media coverage. In addition to its two newest members, the Southland Conference lineup also consists of Lamar University, McNeese State University, Nicholls State University, Northwestern State University, Sam Houston State University, Southeastern Louisiana University, Stephen F. Austin State University, the University of Texas at Arlington, the University of Texas at San Antonio and Texas State University-San Marcos. All told, the revised membership of the Southland encompasses over 160,000 current students and an alumni base of approximately 700,000. Famous alums from Southland Conference schools include former President Lyndon B. Johnson (Texas State); CBS news anchor Dan Rather (Sam Houston State); U.S. Central Command general Tommy Franks (UT Arlington),;NBA executive Joe Dumars (McNeese State); ABC news and sports anchor Robin Roberts (Southeastern Louisiana); country music star George Strait (Texas State); Major League Baseball stars Hunter Pence (UT Arlington); Kevin Millar (Lamar); and Ben Broussard (McNeese State); NBA legend Scottie Pippen (Central Arkansas); and actor Lou Diamond Phillips (UT Arlington). The cities of the Southland are diverse and progressive, ranging from international business and cultural centers, such as the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex, San Antonio and the New Orleans area, to the historical cities of Nacogdoches, Texas, and Natchitoches, La., to the home of the modern oil boom, Beaumont, Texas, to the unique Cajun French cultures found in the Louisiana cities of Thibodaux and Lake Charles. Southland Conference institutions also draw large numbers of students from the

metropolitan areas of Houston, Little Rock, Baton Rouge, Austin and Shreveport. The Southland sponsors 17 championship sports, all at the NCAA Division I level. The eight men’s sports include football, basketball, baseball, golf, tennis, cross country, and indoor and outdoor track and field. The women compete for nine championships in basketball, volleyball, softball, soccer, golf, tennis, cross country, and indoor and outdoor track and field. The Conference earns automatic qualification to NCAA championships in football, men’s and women’s basketball, baseball, softball, volleyball, men’s golf, men’s and women’s tennis, women’s soccer, men’s and women’s outdoor track and field, and men’s and women’s cross country. Southland Conference football ranks among the best Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) leagues in the nation and enjoys an annual expectation of competing for the national championship with multiple teams advancing to the NCAA playoffs each year. In 2002 and 2003, McNeese State finished the regular season ranked No. 1 in the nation and advanced to the 2002 national championship contest, the sixth such title game appearance since the league joined FCS in 1982. All told, Southland teams have played in 89 Division I playoff games in 26 years, winning 43 of the contests. Southland representatives advanced to the national semifinals two of the last four years and three of the last six. Historically, the Southland’s successful football heritage has sustained itself through numerous membership and classification changes. Originally an NAIA conference, the Southland joined the NCAA College Division in 1968. The College Division was renamed NCAA Division II in 1973, and the league played two seasons in that class. The Southland was an NCAA Division I league from 1975-81 before joining the ranks of FCS in 1982, its home ever since. During its tenure as a Division I conference from 1975-81, the Southland Conference was instrumental in the startup of the Independence Bowl in 1976. The Southland representative served as the host team of the bowl until 1980, compiling a 2-3 record in the contests. The Conference can lay claim to five national championships, including College Division championships through former members Arkansas State (1970, UPI) and Louisiana Tech (1972, National Football Foundation). Louisiana Tech also won the first-ever NCAA-sanctioned national title, winning the Division II playoffs in 1973. Tech followed that with the UPI’s Division II national championship in 1974. Louisiana-Monroe won the 1987 FCS national title. McNeese State, which has made 13 appearances in the national playoffs, tied for the fourth-most alltime, played in the 1997 and 2002 NCAA Division I Football Championship Subdivision national championship games, while Stephen F. Austin played in the 1989 title game and has four playoff appearances. Northwestern State has played in six

THE SOUTHLAND CONFERENCE • ABOUT THE SOUTHLAND national playoffs and advanced to the semifinals in 1998, while Sam Houston State has earned four trips to the postseason, including the semifinals in 2004, and Nicholls State has participated three times in the playoffs. Texas State, in its lone postseason appearance, advanced to the semifinals in 2005. On four occasions, the Southland has placed three teams in the national 16-team playoffs. Six of the eight current football-playing members have qualified for the FCS playoffs. In addition, Texas State won NCAA Division II titles in 1981 and 1982 before joining the Southland. The Southland has produced 149 football AllAmericans during its history and has sent such talent to the professional ranks, including Miami’s Keith Davis (Sam Houston State), Miami’s Josh McCown (Sam Houston State), Buffalo’s Terrence McGee (Northwestern State), Kansas City’s B.J. Sams (McNeese State), Seattle’s Mike Green (Northwestern State), Cleveland’s Kenny Wright (Northwestern State), Indianapolis’ Chad Stanley (Stephen F. Austin), Green Bay’s Craig Nall (Northwestern State) and Philadelphia’s Luke Lawton (McNeese State). In the 2008 NFL Draft, the league saw three players taken, the most since five were selected in the 2002 NFL Draft. The league had two players selected in the 2007 and 2006 NFL Drafts, and has seen 21 players taken in the NFL Draft since 2000. Former NFL stars from the Southland include Fred Dean, who was inducted to the Professional Football Hall of Fame in 2008, becoming the first former Southland Conference player to earn induction in Canton, Bill Bergey, Stan Humphries, Fred Barnett, Roger Carr, Marvin Upshaw, Larry Centers, Kavika Pittman, Mike Barber, Bruce Collie, Tim McKyer, Pat Tilley, Jackie Harris, Eugene Seale, Bubby Brister, Billy Ryckman, Rafael Septien, Buford Jordan, Marcus Spears, Terrance Shaw and Ray Brown. The Southland Conference also has seen its share of great coaches during its history such as Maxie Lambright, Ernie Duplechin, Sam Goodwin, Jack Doland, Bennie Ellender, Bobby Keasler, Larry Lacewell, Bill Davidson, Dennis Franchione, Pat Collins and Ron Randleman. While successful on the fields and courts, the Southland Conference has repeatedly demonstrated its commitment to the academic and athletic success of its student-athletes. In addition to football, the Southland Conference can point to a number of accomplishments in all sports. Men’s basketball has experienced a tremendous amount of success during the Southland’s 40-plus years. The league has sent two teams to the NCAA Sweet Sixteen, and a squad to the NIT Final Four. Basketball stars Karl Malone, Joe Dumars, Jeff Foster, Dwight “Bo” Lamar, Andrew Toney, Devin Brown, and Mike Olliver played in the Southland Conference. In 2006, Northwestern State, playing as the No. 14 seed in the NCAA Tournament, defeated No. 3 seed Iowa, 64-63, in first-round action. In 2008, the league saw two postseason teams (UT Arlington in the NCAA Tournament and Stephen F. Austin to the NIT) for the first time since 2001.

Entering the 2008-09 season, Sam Houston State holds the nation’s second-longest non-conference home court winning streak (44), behind only Duke’s 59 win total. Coaches such as Billy Tubbs, Mike Vining, Scotty Robertson, Jack Martin, Andy Russo, Bobby Paschal and Pat Foster have led teams in the Southland. In women’s basketball, the Southland also has its share of tradition with UL-Monroe advancing to the 1985 NCAA Women’s Final Four and Stephen F. Austin sustaining itself as one of the most successful programs in the history of the sport. In 2008, the Ladyjacks became the sixth program in NCAA Division I history to record over 800 wins, joining Tennessee, Louisiana Tech, Old Dominion, Texas and James Madison. Women’s basketball all-stars have included Eun Jung Lee, Lisa Ingram, Portia Hill, Deneen Parker, Katrina Price, and Joskeen Garner, and coaches such as Gary Blair, Linda Sharp, James Smith and Linda Harper. Baseball has emerged as a huge Southland Conference strength with the league earning numerous national rankings and NCAA Tournament berths. The Southland consistently ranks among the top 10 conferences in the country. Major leaguers, such as Ben Sheets, the league’s highest draft pick (10th in 1999 by the Milwaukee Brewers), Hunter Pence, David Segui, Brian Lawrence, Ben Broussard, Chuck Finley, Jerald Clark and Terry Matthews, once played in the league. Former UT Arlington shortstop Trey Hillman, a three-time All-SLC selection from 1983-85, was named the manager for the Kansas City Royals on October 19, 2007. In the 2008 Major League Baseball Draft, Southeastern Louisiana’s Wade Miley became the 11th- highest player selected in league history, as he was taken No. 43 overall by the Arizona Diamondbacks. In 2005, McNeese State pitcher Jacob Marceaux was a first-round pick by the Florida Marlins, becoming the fifth SLC player to be taken in the first round. The league has also seen a multitude of players taken in the MLB Draft, as 13 were taken in 2008, 17 in 2007 and 22 were selected in 2004. Such coaches as Jim Gilligan, who won his 1000th career game in 2005, Pat Patterson, Butch McBroom, Jim Wells, Smoke Laval, Dave Van Horn, Mike Bianco, John Cohen and Tony Robichaux have patrolled Southland dugouts. Softball continues to enjoy success on a national level, as the league has knocked off at least one nationally ranked opponent since 1995. In the 2003 NCAA Tournament, UT Arlington and Texas State enjoyed unprecedented success, as each won two games in the national event. The league also has won at least one game in the NCAA Tournament in two of the past four years and seven out of 15 years. The Southland has a proud history in volleyball, as UT Arlington has represented the conference eight times in the NCAA Tournament, advancing all the way to the NCAA Volleyball Final Four in 1989. In 2006, Stephen F. Austin moved to the second round following an opening round win over Alabama. Track and field also has served as a proud asset

for the Southland Conference, as the league has produced numerous national champions and Olympic medalists. The Southland boasts 27 men’s and three women’s student-athletes who have won NCAA track and field national championships, including A&M-Corpus Christi’s Shadrack Songok (10,000 meter run) in 2007 and 2008 and McNeese State’s Brad Gebauer (pole vault) in 2007. The league has also produced U.S. Olympic track and field medalists Earl Bell, Thomas Hill, Al Joyner and Charles Austin, along with other Olympians. Golf has traditionally been a strong Southland sport, as exemplified by Lamar men’s golfer Chris Stroud, who finished third individually at the 2003 NCAA National Championship and is a current member of the PGA Tour. The league has sent multiple teams into postseason play on numerous occasions, most recently in 2008 as both Lamar and UT Arlington qualified. Lamar won a pair of NCAA Division II national championships in 1967 and 1968 and also produced PGA player Ronnie Black. In 2005, Lamar’s Dawie Van Der Walt finished fourth individually and LU tied for 12th place at the NCAA Men’s Golf Championship, before the Cardinals tied for ninth in 2006 and tied for third in 2007. Former Lamar golfer Casey Clendenon advanced to the semifinals of the U.S. Amateur in 2007. Southland tennis also has experienced national prominence. UT Arlington’s All-American Andy Leber was the 2002 ITA/Ted Farnsworth National Senior Co-Player of the Year after a 43-3 record and earning the nation’s No. 2 ranking. In women’s tennis, Southeastern Louisiana has won 46-straight

league matches entering the 2009 season, one of the longest streaks in the nation. The conference has increased sponsorship and championships opportunities for female studentathletes in recent years, adding women’s golf and soccer as league sports. In 2007, Stephen F. Austin became the first SLC team to score a goal in the NCAA Tournament, while Texas State became the first women’s golf program to compete in the NCAA Tournament. The Southland Conference has repeatedly demonstrated its commitment to the academic and athletic success of its student-athletes. With the F.L. McDonald Postgraduate Scholarship Award, the league annually honors one male and one female scholar-athlete with a stipend for postgraduate study. The Scholar-Athlete Award is given to each institution’s male and female studentathlete with the highest grade-point average. Also, student-athletes with grade-point averages above 3.0 are honored on the SLC’s annual All-Academic teams and Commissioner’s Honor Roll. In addition to providing expanding opportunities for student-athletes, the Southland Conference and its member institutions are very involved in various community outreach programs. Many of these programs provide positive life skills training, such as academics, citizenship and leadership, to schoolaged students in Southland communities. The Steve McCarty Citizenship Award, initiated in 2005-06 and named after the former Stephen F. Austin athletic director, properly recognizes accomplishments off the court for a male and female student-athlete.
