... which means the 2011 ACU football season can't be far away. In fact, the Wildcats report in just 15 days (Aug. 10) with the first practice set for Aug. 11. The season-opener is Thursday, Sept. 1, against Tarleton State in Stephenville.
But first things first, and that means the annual LSC Media Day festivities in Fort Worth. We're just about set to begin with the unveiling of pre-season polls in football, volleyball, men's and women's soccer, and men's and women's cross country. Joining ACU head football coach Chris Thomsen in attendance today are senior defensive end Aston Whiteside, senior offensive lineman Matt Webber, and junior quarterback Mitchell Gale.
Check back here throughout the next 90 minutes for updates on the pre-season polls and pre-season players of the year, and then look for a complete recap on acusports.com.
Hard to believe it's here, but the 2011-12 athletic year is upon us. Go Wildcats!
