Letter from A.D. John Currie - October 21

Good afternoon K-State Nation!

Let's start today's update by congratulating Coach Snyder and our football team on a big win at Oklahoma last Saturday! Our team cherishes traveling to an opponent's stadium and feeling right at home with a sea of purple in the stands no matter where we are playing. Saturday was no different! Hearing that "K-S-U" chant echo through a road stadium after we score is special! I was so proud of the toughness and grit of our student-athletes and great game plan of our staff in opposition to an outstanding OU squad. 

While it is terrific to see the Cats improve to 5-1 overall and 3-0 in Big 12 play, another great moment of the day for me actually came as our team plane taxied to the terminal after landing in MHK as the lead flight attendant came on the speaker system and said, "In my 15 years of flying this is the classiest group I have ever flown with." In this day and age we should never take for granted the high level of expectations set by Coach Snyder for our student-athletes. And, let's salute our team captains and players for understanding and embracing their role as K-State representatives! 

Finally, thank you to senior Randall Evans, who donned his late former teammate David Garrett's No. 27 jersey for Saturday's game. David's funeral services were Saturday in Ohio, at the same time the Wildcats were playing in Norman wearing his initials and No. 27 on their helmets. Please continue to remember David and keep his family in your thoughts and prayers.
