A DAY IN THE LIFE OF A MUSTANG ATHLETE DEVIN DIEDRICH, 2012 Spring Semester • 8:30 am -

Alarm goes off, telling me it is time to start another week and head to my first class. Eat some breakfast, throw on some sweats, and get ready for the day.

• 9:00 am -

I arrive on campus and head to Java City to get my morning coffee, medium Mocha without whipped cream. I will need this to get through my day!

• 9:30 am -

My first and favorite class of the day, Physiological Anatomy with Sandy Craner. The body is so interesting to me!

• 10:30 am -

Start of class number two for me, Adapted Physical Education Applications. My mornings are very busy!

• 11:30 am -

Off to my THIRD class of the morning with my Coach, Terry Culhane. This was another one of my favorites, Coaching and Officiating Volleyball, because I got to learn more techniques and methods behind the game I love.

• 12:30 pm -

Grab a quick bite to eat and then off to one of my favorite things of the day, Weight Lifting. Lifting weights is a great way to get my mind off the stressors throughout the morning.

• 1:30 pm -

Back in class yet again, with Coach Buchholz, finally, my last one of the day.

• 2:20 pm -

Happy to be done with my busy morning and afternoon but the day is not done. I head to our Student Center to grab a quick snack, which was usually Hummus, and go hang out in our Volleyball locker room waiting for one of our spring practices to begin.

Devin Diedrich

• 3:00 pm -

Time to get dressed and ready for practice and get my mind ready to get better at Volleyball!

• 6:00 pm -

Finally, on my way home from a busy day at school and practice! Trying to decide what I should have for dinner, I am usually pretty hungry at this time.

Major/Degree Program: Physical & Health Education Minors in Adaptive Physical Education & Coaching

• 7:00 pm -

Feeling full from dinner and it is time to work on some Physiological Anatomy.

• 9:00 pm -

Done with studying for the night, my brain is exhausted, time to jump in bed and turn on some ESPN to see if anything exciting happened today.

• 10:30 pm -

Time to catch some Zzz’s before another long day starts again tomorrow. Couldn’t be happier with the blessed day I have had and hope to have another great one tomorrow.

MUSTANG BOOSTER CLUB CIVIC ENGAGEMENT EVENTS Mustang Mail

WBCA Pink Zone

Mustang Mail is a pen pal program created and supported by the Mustang Booster Club. All SMSU student-athletes are paired up with students from Marshall Elementary Schools. Students write and receive letters talking about the importance of school, and what it means to be a Mustang. During the spring semester we host “Mustang Mail Day” at each school and all students get the chance to meet their student-athlete pal.

The WBCA Pink Zone is an NCAA sponsored event that raises awareness and funds for breast cancer treatment and research. Each February at a home women’s and men’s basketball double header, the R/A Facility is decorated pink to show support. The teams and cheerleaders wear special pink warm-ups and uniforms to show support for the cause. The women’s basketball team also sells their warm-up shirts to students and fans and donates all the proceeds to the Kay Yow Cancer Fund. At halftime, student-athletes and coaches gather on the court to donate at least 10 inches of hair to the Locks of Love program.

Mustang Shootout The Mustang Shootout is a clay shooting competition held annually at Shooter’s Sporting Clays in Marshall, MN. Each year nearly one hundred participants form teams to compete for the best team and individual scores. The Mustang Booster Club helps sponsor the event with proceeds going towards scholarships for student-athletes.

Smokefest Smokefest is an officially sanctioned Kansas City BBQ Society contest held on the SMSU campus and hosted by the SMSU Department of Athletics. In 2011, Smokefest partnered with the City of Marshall’s Sounds of Summer (SOS) Celebration. Smokefest serves as the central location for Friday evening activities during the SOS week long celebration. Each year, nearly 40 barbecue teams descend on Marshall to test their BBQ skills in four categories: pork ribs, chicken, pork butt and beef brisket. Smokefest activities include; kids inflatable’s, carnival games, music, authentic BBQ offerings and a movie hosted at the Regional Event Center on the SMSU Campus. Since its inception, Smokefest has received the NCAA’s Civic Engagement Award on two different occasions.

David & Carol Drown SMSU Golf Classic The SMSU Golf Classic is SMSU’s longest running fundraiser. In 2011, the SMSU Golf Classic was renamed the David & Carol Drown SMSU Golf Classic.

Why did you choose SMSU? I wanted to play College football, and SMSU's football program invited me on a visit. The campus was all connected so you don't have to go outside in the winter time, and the friendly/family atmosphere you get at SMSU. After my visit, I knew SMSU is where I belonged.

I chose SMSU because I had the opportunity to continue my athletic career while pursuing my degree. I felt like the professor that I spoke with on my visit really cared about me as a prospective student. I liked the small class sizes that SMSU had to offer and the opportunity to get involved in a number of on-campus clubs and activities. I could also sense a strong support system within not only the softball program, but also within Mustang Athletics as a whole. The hometown feel of the city of Marshall also drew me to SMSU. What are your plans after graduation? After graduation next spring, I would like to get a job at a hospital or another health care facility to gain some patient care experience. After a couple years of that, I hope to attend graduate school to be a Physician's Assistant.
