Just a Few Thoughts from Jim D..
The Alpine Bank JUCO World Series is fasting approaching. Lots of the familar names like San Jacinto, Cowley, McClennan and Chipola will be here, but there is an interesting newcomer. Wallace College-Dothan of Alabama is coming to the series for the first time ever as they ended Chattahoochee Valley’s string of three straight trips to the series. Former Mets and Giants catcher Mackey Sasser will bring the Governors to Suplizio for the first time. As for McClennan and San Jac, they have the hitting and the pitching that will make them threats to win it all. The Highlanders are third in the nation in home runs with the Gators positing the third best ERA. Catch all the games on 101.1 FM, 1340, 100.1 FM Montrose, 1490 Rifle and 980 KGLN in Glenwood with first pitch at 9 AM on May 27th.
A change in the athletic department leadership at Colorado Mesa. Tom Spicer and President Tim Foster decided to part ways after disagreeing about the direction of the department. There’s no doubt the athletic department thrived under Spicer, winning seven RMAC titles this school year. Spicer left the CMU athletic department in a far better place then when he arrived. Experienced associate AD’s Kris Mort and Bryan Rooks will split the duties, but could this lead to communication problems down the road? Both have worked together as associate AD’s since 2007, so you would think that wouldn’t be an issue. I believe that a department needs to have one voice, but perhaps this unconventional direction will work.
Broncos cornerback Chris Harris Jr. loves having a chip on his shoulder. Whether its been being an undrafted rookie free-agent to the latest thing to fuel his fire. Harris went from 52nd to 63rd in the new NFL Network top 100 players poll. Harris had a season that was good, if not better than 2015. The poll is voted on by the players, so Harris will certainly use this to have another big season in the Broncos “No Fly Zone”.
