Having seniority on a team is a special feeling. It’s a unique culmination of years of hard work and dedication leading up to one last season to make everything count.

Sheehy puts five-star talent to the test

Josh Sheehy might not be a name recognized by most people on campus. The general ACU community may not even know that he’s a student-athlete, representing the Wildcats on the tennis court.

From touchdowns to timed starts: Epps transition to the track

Whistles and yells echo from the field. Small orange cones mark every 10-15 yards. The sounds of shoes hitting the ground become a subtle background noise. All of these noises and sights are no different for senior wide receiver Jonathan Epps. The only difference is instead of football pads, he’s now in track spikes and […]

Delivering Diamondback: PGA legend brings top-notch golf course to Abilene

With three holes left, Charles Coody held a one stroke lead in the 1969 Masters, but was tripped up on the 16th tee. “There was a phrase that is coined on the tour of playing out of somebody’s bag, and I never really did that,” Coody said.” I knew it was a good six-iron to […]

JUCO Trio Headlines ACU Receiving Corp

ACU’s top three wide receivers in 2015 didn’t see the field until their junior years, but it wasn’t because they were redshirted or behind upper classman. Seniors Cedric Gilbert and Jonathan Epps, along with junior Carl Whitley entered ACU as junior college transfers and had an instant impact for the Wildcats. Head coach Ken Collums said that he […]

Turnaround, not Turnover: Freshmen Duo Aims for Culture Change

They don’t care about the past. They don’t care about the losses. They don’t care about the reputation. They don’t even care about the turnover.
