Posted on 05 May 2014 by WNST Staff

DREW EVANGELISTA SELECTED TO PARTICIPATE IN NCAA FORUM

Tiger Kicker To Attend Four-Day Forum In June

 

TOWSON, Md. – Kicker Drew Evangelista (Cedar Grove H.S./Cedar Grove, N.J.) of the Towson University football team is one of 200 student-athletes who have been selected to participate in the NCAA’s Career In Sports Forum (CSF).

The CSF will be held in Indianapolis at the NCAA national office headquarters in early June. It brings together 200 chosen student-athletes for four days to learn about and explore potential careers in sports, with the primary focus on intercollegiate athletics. The CSF is designed to assist student-athletes in charting their career paths, to give them the opportunity to network and to learn from current athletics professionals.

By attending the Career in Sports Forum, participants will consider how personal values intersect with career opportunities. The participants will also better understand how behavioral styles impact individual effectiveness and develop actionable plans for personal growth and development. They will also gain an accurate view of the role of the intercollegiate coach or athletics administrator.

A two-time member of the Colonial Athletic Association Academic All-Conference team, Evangelista competed as a graduate student during the 2013 season.

In 2013, he played a key role in Towson University’s rise to the NCAA FCS championship game. He helped the Tigers post a 13-3 record by scoring 84 points. He set a school record with 69 conversion kicks and also kicked five field goals. Included among his five field goals was a 50-yarder at Albany.

He also punted 17 times for a 37.0 average and had two punts longer than 50 yards.

The Tigers, who finished the season as the second-ranked team in NCAA FCS, were honored as the winners of the Lambert/Meadowlands Award as the top FCS in the East.

Fang Mitchell not returning to Coppin State

Posted on 28 March 2014 by WNST Staff

Ron “Fang” Mitchell IS Coppin State.

Unfortunately, all good things must come to an end, as the school announced today that Mitchell will not be retained as coach after 28 years as coach of the Eagles.

Mitchell, owns a career 365-318 record in his coaching career, but was let go after three straight losing seasons.

Mitchell had 11 straight seasons at Coppin from 1988-2000, including four NCAA Tournaments and two NIT appearances.

Mitchell was remembered for upsetting #2 South Carolina in the first round of the 1997 NCAA Tournament, which at the time was the third 15-seed to earn an upset win in March Madness.
