At K-State football's game against Oklahoma on Nov. 23, 2013, Overland Park, Kan., native Bob Bridgham, 67, suffered sudden cardiac arrest, and if it weren't for two special Wildcat fans and one very prepared K-State Event Staff member, Bridgham might not have made the successful recovery he did.

Letter from A.D. John Currie - January 14

Good Afternoon Wildcat Nation,

It has been a few weeks since my last update, and I hope you have managed to stay safe during the recent winter weather that has affected most of the country. It's certainly been warm inside Bramlage Coliseum, and I appreciate the terrific crowds that have played a huge role for both our men's and women's teams.

Coach Weber and the Cats, winners of 10 of their past 11, will host another big game tonight as K-State Athletics Hall of Famer Lon Kruger and his No. 25 Sooners visit Bramlage. The game can be seen nationally at 6 p.m. on ESPN2, while fans can listen to Wyatt and Stan along the K-State Sports Network and FREE online at k-statesports.com.

Coach Patterson and the women's squad will also be in action at 7 p.m. tonight as they face Texas Tech in Lubbock. That game can be seen live on FOX Sports Southwest and heard along the K-State Sports Network and also for FREE online at k-statesports.com.

Let's jump into a few updates from around the department.

Heroic Efforts Honored During Halftime Recognition
Last month I shared with you the story about one of our football fans suffering cardiac arrest at the Oklahoma game and the heroic efforts of nearby fans, staff and emergency personnel who helped save the individual's life. During our recent men's hoops game against Oklahoma State, we recognized both the individual recovering from the heart attack as well as those involved in the rescue effort. It was an emotional and inspirational time for everyone and illustrated how the K-State Family looks out for one another. Click here for a recap of the event that aired on Kansas First News.
