leading the Lions to a national title as a senior in 1972.
Both A&M-Commerce and Angelo State are members of the NCAA Division II and
the Lone Star Conference.
A&M-Commerce president Dr. Dan Jones is excited about the annual event. ³The
Harvey Martin Classic has quickly become an annual tradition for Lions
football. It has provided a great opportunity for our student-athletes to
play in a venue that is steeped in history, and has also given our 30,000 -
plus alumni in the DFW Metroplex a chance to reconnect and experience that
lifelong sense of Lion Pride. The Harvey Martin Classic just gets bigger and
better each year."
³We are excited to be playing in our third Harvey Martin Classic with our
third opponent from the Lone Star Conference Angelo State. It has been and
continues to be a great university event. It also continues to be an
opportunity to reach out to our alumni and the Dallas/Fort Worth community
with the luncheon, golf tournament and tailgate,² said A&M-Commerce athletic
director Carlton Cooper.
³I thank Carlton Cooper for bringing this event to the University,² said
Texas A&M-Commerce head football coach Guy Morriss. I feel it is a special
privilege our coaches, our student-athletes and me to participate in this
³We are delighted about the opportunity to play in the Cotton Bowl, one of
the most storied gridiron venues in Texas and in the nation. We think this
is a great opportunity not only to give our many alumni in the Metroplex an
opportunity to support the Rams locally but also to partner with
A&M-Commerce to showcase Lone Star Conference football in the region,² said
Dr. Joseph C. Rallo, Angelo State University president.
Angelo State athletic director Kathleen Brasfield, who currently serves as
the chair of the NCAA Division II Management Council noted that her
university is proud to be a part of the event. ³We are looking forward to
partnering with A&M-Commerce in 2010 for the Harvey Martin Classic in the
Cotton Bowl, and for all the activities surrounding that event. It¹s a
great opportunity for former Rams and `Belles in the area to get together
and enjoy LSC football. ASU athletics, band, ROTC, development office and
alumni association are planning together to make it an eventful and
memorable weekend. We hope our alums in the Dallas area will mark their
calendars and that others will begin their travel plans for the Rams and
Lions fun. Watch www.angelosports.com for up to date news about the events,²
³Almost a fourth of the players on our team are from high schools within an
hour of the Cotton Bowl. This will be a great chance for their high school
coaches and family and friends to see them play. I hope this game becomes a
tradition between our two schools and that we can play in the Cotton Bowl
each year,² said Angelo State University head coach Dale Carr.
³This is a very valuable event to not only both Texas A&M
University-Commerce and Angelo State but to also to our conference,² said
Stan Wagnon, commissioner of the Lone Star Conference. ³We stand to gain
from this event through the hard work of both institutions, and are pleased
to provide our support to this event.²
Many events are being planned for the event and will be announced this
