Clovis News Journal
PORTALES — Eastern New Mexico University senior wide receiver Jesse Poku has been nominated for the 2010 Allstate American Football Coaches Association Good Works team, based on performance on the field and community contributions off it.

Wang Added to Rambelle Volleyball Coaching Staff
ASU Sports Information
SAN ANGELO, Texas – It’s safe to assume that Angelo State head volleyball coach Chuck Waddington pinched himself in disbelief or did at least one double take when he came across Qi Wang’s (pronounced CHEE Wong) application for the vacant assistant position on the Rambelle coaching staff.
Waddington spent a good portion of his summer sifting through resumes in search of a qualified assistant, and found that and more in Wang, a former AVCA NCAA Division II National Coach of the Year and leader of two teams that reached the NCAA Division II championship match. Wang has been added to Waddington’s staff and will help mentor a team that was selected third in the Lone Star Conference Preseason Volleyball Poll released by the league office Tuesday.
“I cannot begin to tell you how excited I am about adding Qi to our coaching staff,” Waddington said. “His knowledge and level of experience are off the charts. His technical expertise and success at the national level will no doubt have a huge impact on our program. To say that I am looking forward to working with him would be a huge understatement.”
