Today marks the beginning of April. Baseball is in full force, and a few teams are still in spring ball, but otherwise it’s waiting for the NFL draft at the end of the month. While you wait, check out some news from around the conference and the college sports world in general.
Stadium Authority announces new stadium for Hawaii.
In five years, but still, that’s huge news for the Rainbow Warriors. Money for athletics is hard to come by on the islands, so any type of plans like these should be taken as very good news. According to the article, Crawford Architects will be behind the project. They have a good resume, remodeling Lambeau Field, building the new Vikings Stadium, and Centurylink Field in Seattle. They also want it to be more than solely a football stadium.
Get to know the new Aggies DC.
First year Utah State defensive coordinator Justin Ena has loved his time as an Aggie so far. He thinks the defense is strong up front and with the pass-rushers and looks to David Woodward as the leader of the defense. He brings a lot of NFL experience and credits BYU coach Kalani Sitake for helping him breaking into coaching. Ena loves the outdoors, specifically camping and hiking.
Warriors start spring practices.
On the first day of spring ball, Coach Rolovich challenged the defensive backs to step up in their production from last season. It sounds like Zach Wilson was one of the first to rise to that challenge. Of course, the starting QB battle between Cole McDonald and Chevan Cordeiro is what everyone is interested in and it sounds like both are locked in the first day. Should be an interesting few weeks.
Rams getting a free field.
Colorado State will be playing on a new field surface next year. The best part? It’s coming at no cost. It’s only two years old, but officials say it did not meet the requirements for performance, not draining water efficiently, which is why it will be done at no charge. The work will begin Monday and should be completed in July.
