A basketball coach that made several visits to the William R Johnson Coliseum to face the Lumberjacks has passed away. Former Texas-San Antonio (UTSA) head coach Brooks Thompson has passed away at the age of 45.
"Watch number 0, if you want to become a better basketball player, just watch Thomas Walkup." That's what I've told my 15-year-old son and that's what I would tell any coach or parent. "Just watch how Walkup plays the game."
It's been a heckuva week for SFA Lumberjack Football. After reclaiming Chief Caddo with a last second victory over Northwestern State Saturday evening, the 'Jacks learned Sunday morning that they received a bid into the NCAA FCS Playoffs.
The SFA Lumberjacks are in action this afternoon at the William R Johnson Coliseum in Nacogdoches. It's the annual Cram the Coliseum game with all kinds of giveaways and, of course, a huge, televised game against Texas A&M - Corpus Christi.
