Speculation about the next head football coach is not the only thing going on around Manhattan right now. Luke Thompson had our own Eric Rubottom and the Tulsa World’s Kelly Hines in for the latest edition of Bring on the PodCats to talk about the upcoming men’s basketball game against Tulsa.
Speaking of basketball, the WeberCats are off again for mid-week action, but the MittieCats are at home tonight, hosting Lamar to wrap up a two-game homestand. The game, scheduled for a 7pm CST start time, will also be available on FCS Central and at KStateHD.TV with Brian Smoller (play-by-play), Missy Heidrick (analyst), and Anna Christianson (sideline) on the call.
Newcomers have been making a big impact for the Wildcats so far this season, and one of those is junior transfer Jasauen Beard, who is bringing a ton of energy to this K-State team.
Post-season awards are rolling in for K-State volleyball, and freshman Gloria Mutiri was name the American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA) Midwest Region Freshman of the Year, and was joined by fellow Wildcats Sarah Dixon and Kylee Zumach on the AVCA All-Midwest Region First Team.
K-State soccer announced a new player for the 2019 season, as junior goalkeeper Rachel Harris is headed to Manhattan after spending her first two collegiate seasons at Arkansas. The California native joins an incoming class of six freshman to compete for a Wildcat soccer program that is headed into its fourth season.
Speaking of transfers, as announced yesterday on his social media, Hutchinson CC wide receiver standout Khalil McClain has pledged his services to the Wildcats; which is all the more impressive since the Wildcats currently do not have a head coach (Robinett, Eagle). While one more is coming, one is also leaving, as senior-to-be QB Alex Delton has announced that he will depart the K-State football program after his graduation this December, and will complete his senior season for another program (Black, Mercury). Delton will be immediately eligible as a graduate transfer, and we wish this EMAW warrior the best of luck in his future endeavors.
Kellis Robinett has his weekly Q&A, and of course the questions were all about the football program. Be sure and scroll through these, as two of our very own staffers got questions answered.
And from someplace we usually don’t get K-States sports stuff, Greg Echlin at High Plains Public Radio (based in Garden City, KS) give us Bill Snyder’s Top 10 moments from his time at K-State; and it’s not all about football.
Also, last night was the annual National Football Foundation dinner and awards event, and K-State’s Dalton Risner was up for the Campbell Trophy that was being awarded. Unfortunately Risner did not win the award, instead going to Clemson’s Christian Wilkins.
