Letter from A.D. John Currie - May 21

Good Afternoon K-State Nation,

It has been a busy week, especially in Western Kansas as the 2015 Summer Catbacker Tour kicked off Monday in Dodge City and continues today in Colby before concluding tomorrow in Hays.  It is great to see the passion of K-Staters across the state, and I am reminded each year what a special and unique tradition these events are each summer.  We had another huge crowd in Scott City last night, which roared with applause when we announced the final score of our baseball team's Big 12 Tournament first-round upset over the Sooners as we began the program.

This afternoon we are making an exciting announcement about a new Ring of Honor class, K-State Football's highest honor, which was established under Coach Snyder's leadership in 2002. We are pleased that former greats Michael Bishop, Jordy Nelson, Clarence Scott and Darren Sproles will comprise the third class inducted into the elite fraternity, bringing the total number to 14.

These four football legends, all of whom have also earned their degrees from K-State, will have their names permanently affixed to the facing inside Bill Snyder Family Stadium during a halftime presentation of the 2015 season opener against South Dakota.  The names will also be prominently shown on the Ring of Honor display in the West Stadium Center concourse inside Gate B.

All of us in K-State Athletics are thrilled to honor these four football greats who have had a transformational impact on the success of our program and continue to be tremendous ambassadors for Kansas State University.  Each of these individuals has displayed tremendous integrity and overall excellence both on and off the field, and we are proud to recognize them for their commitment and contributions.  I have enjoyed getting to know each of these men over the course of the last six years, and I know you will join me in welcoming them back to K-State in September as we recognize them.  Check k-statesports.com for our full release, which includes biographical information in addition to a short video.
