Sexton Selected for Future Coaches Academy

MANHATTAN, Kan. -- Kansas State senior wide receiver Curry Sexton is one of 30 participants selected to attend the Future Football Coaches Academy (FFCA) in conjunction with the American Football Coaches Association (AFCA) Convention, January 11-14, in Louisville, Kentucky.

The Abilene, Kansas, product will attend exclusive academy workshops, engage in a variety of convention sessions and network with key individuals in the industry. During the FFCA, Sexton will learn the aspects of securing, managing and excelling as a coach: the intersection of personal values with coaching opportunities, impact of behavioral styles, examination of coaching as a viable profession and realistic view of entry-level football coach.

Recognized football coaches and leaders will serve as mentors to those in attendance, addressing issues on a more personal basis. Through these experiences, Sexton and the other 29 participants will walk away with a big-picture understanding of the intercollegiate football coaching profession, increased self-awareness as a new football coach and a vast network of individuals to help take their next career step.

Sexton was a Second Team Academic All-American and Second Team All-Big 12 performer as a senior. Voted a team captain for the 2014 season, Sexton came away with 79 receptions for 1,059 yards and five touchdowns. He ranks fourth in school history in single-season catches and seventh in both single-season yards and career receptions (129).

Staying busy after exhausting his eligibility just last week, Sexton is playing in the Medal of Honor Bowl, a postseason all-star game in Charleston, South Carolina, on Saturday prior to heading to Louisville for the FFCA. The game kicks off at 1:30 p.m. (CT) and will be aired on the NBC Sports Network.
