New Basketball Assistant Named
WEATHERFORD, Okla. - New Southwestern Oklahoma State University women's basketball coach Kelsi Bond has announced the hiring of Cophie Moore as the lead assistant for the Bulldogs' NCAA Division II program. The job will be Moore's first as a coach and comes after she previously worked as a personal trainer and a rehabilitation therapist in the Dallas-Fort Worth Area.

"Cophie will no doubt be one of the bright, up-and-coming, young coaches in women's basketball. Her enthusiasm and work ethic are what set her apart and make her a perfect addition for our team," Bond said. "She will add youthful excitement and determination, both necessary qualities in today's highly competitive recruiting battles. We look forward to having her becoming a large part of the SWOSU women's basketball family."

Moore played at Fresno State University for four seasons (2001-05) where Bond was an assistant. Moore was a three-time selection to the Western Athletic Conference (WAC) all-Academic team and was selected as one of the school's scholar athletes multiple times. At Fresno, she was a member of a Bulldog team that twice advanced to the National Invitational Tournament (NIT), including an appearance in the Elite 8 in 2005.

Gridiron Greyhounds to Hold Kid's Camp -
PORTALES, N.M.— Eastern New Mexico University football coach Mark Ribaudo has announced that the Greyhounds will be holding a kid's camp on August 22, from 9 a.m.-12 p.m. MST. The camp will be free for kids of ages 5-12 and registration will be at 9 a.m.

Camp activities will take place on the Greyhounds' practice field and will include non-contact drills in offense, defense and special teams. There will also be a highlight video and autographs from ENMU football players.

For more information, please contact the ENMU football office.

Position Preview: Quarterbacks
Keith Null: Null, the Rams 6th round pick, comes from the pass happy school of West Texas A&M where he set records in passing yards, touchdown passes, completion percentage, and total offense. Null could turn out to be a pretty good QB, but he will have to get used to a drastically new offense first. At 6-4, 220, he possesses good size and arm strength and I look forward to seeing him progress over the next few weeks.

Starter- Marc Bulger (The position is his to lose. And its safe to say his play would have to play miserably to lose the job)
Backup- Kyle Boller (Lots of experience. Not nearly as much pressure on him now as there was in Baltimore)
3rd String- Keith Null (I believe he will surprise some people and beat out Berlin for the 3rd string position)
Hello Practice Squad- Brock Berlin (you know, until QBs start dropping like flies, then he’ll be sure to be picked up from the practice squad by someone else)
