ABILENE – We chatted in depth with head men's golf coach Tom Shaw last month, a week after the NCAA shut down the spring sports season due to the spread of coronavirus.

On This Day | April 26, 2009

WR Johnny Knox and RB Bernard Scott were selected in the 2009 NFL Draft. Knox was the 140th overall pick going to the Chicago Bears, and Scott went to the Cincinnati Bengals as the 209th pick. The last time ACU had more than one player drafted was 1983 when center Grant Feasel went to the Colts in the 6th round and wide receiver Steve Parker went to the Patriots in the 11th round.

The NFL Draft reaches its conclusion today, so here's our final @ACUFootball 'Name That Wildcat!' for this week. This mystery Wildcat was ACU's most recent draft pick, but we're hopeful that all changes today.

—————

Yes, the answer is Daryl Richardson, who finished his Wildcat career with 3,082 all-purpose yards! He played in all 16 games for the St. Louis Rams during his rookie season of 2012. Enjoy the draft! @ Abilene, Texas

We wish to pass along our congratulations to Wildcat softball (2005-06) letter winner Daisy Barcena Sandoval on her Thursday graduation from the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Academy.

Current ACU head soccer coach Casey Wilson coached Barcena Sandoval for two seasons in Abilene, and had this to say of her Wildcat tenure, "Daisy came to ACU as we started to rebuild the program in 2005. She and others were exactly what we needed to go from mediocre to a 2005 NCAA bid with the blue collar approach to playing quality softball. Daisy was a hard nosed player with a cannon for an arm who could hit as well.”

The 2005 and 2006 ACU softball teams combined for 73 victories and qualified for NCAA DII Regionals in both seasons.

For her part, Barcena Sandoval hit .301 through 113 games with 13 home runs and 62 RBI.

She played at Hoover High School and Pasadena City College prior to joining the Wildcats. The infielder batted .433, helping the Lancers to a 25-13-1 record. Barcena was a force at the plate, setting a school single-season record with 21 doubles and 32 runs batted in.

As a freshman at PCC, Barcena batted .433, collecting 55 hits and posting a team-high .661 slugging percentage.

The year prior to Barcena's arrival, ACU went went 20-30 overall and 7-13 vs. the Lone Star Conference.

2019-20 ACU XC / TF: Season in Review - Abilene Christian University Athletics

If there’s a silver lining in this outdoor season being lost, it’s that a majority of the Wildcats either had a full cross country or indoor season under their belts. And there was much for all to celebrate during those first six months of the 2019-20 season.

ABILENE – Lest we forget, Abilene Track and Field competed in one outdoor meet prior to the NCAA shuttering the spring season due to the spread of COVID-19.

Earl Young, ACU Nursing partner for DKMS Virtual Donor Drive - Abilene Christian University Athletics

“We’re asking people to please do this and maybe they’ll be the one who’s called. But don’t think it’s a little deal. Don’t think you won’t be called. Christine was the only one in the registry, and if she said, ‘eh it’s never going to happen’, I wouldn’t be here today telling this story.” - Earl Young

ABILENE – Through these first months of the COVID-19 pandemic, the entire world is finding out firsthand what Earl Young has known well for close to a decade ­­– 'Nurses are awesome!'
