Its been awhile...

I am sorry for the long delay from the first blog until now, but I have been extremely busy! I promise to try to keep this updated with as much information as I can grab from Butler Athletics as well important events in the Dawg Pound. Hopefully by the end of this week I will have all of our sponsors finalized and can send in the new designs for our tshirts to get printed for our first home Football game September 5th. Don't you worry these shirts will not be white!

I am also in the process of drafting a few exciting events for Dawg Pound members this year that will definitely add excitement to the Athletic year, stayed tuned for more on that later.

Well since I haven't updated in awhile why don't I start by highlighting some recent events in Butler Athletics:

1. THIS JUST OUT: CHRISHAWN HOPKINS COMMITS TO BUTLER, welcome the 2010 shooting guard originally from Las Vegas who has been making quite a name from himself in the short time he has been around. Reports suggest Hopkins had over 15 offers and was certainly destined to get more. This is a great pickup for us, as Hopkins is a great shooter and adds an athletic component that we have not seen before. I encourage you to check out his dunk contest videos that have become popular on youtube.

2. Second on the list, Tomorrow August 10th marks the opening of camp for the Butler Football team. Starting in the morning the Bulldogs, along with second team 2009 Football Championship Subdivision Preseason All-American Grant Hunter, prepare for the home opener against Albion.

3. Looks to be another great year for the cross country/track team
- "Butler cross country/track coach Matt Roe has added nine recruits to his 2009-10 men’s and women’s rosters and the incoming class figures to have an immediate impact on the Bulldogs’ successful distance program. The newcomers include eight top women, plus one talented male runner."

4. Butler Basketball is in Italy right now and lost to the Swiss National team twice in the first two nights of the trip. Not much emphasis should be put on the losses as this trip helps Coach Stevens get everyone some looks as he figures out the right combination for success. Matt Howard was injured in the last game against the Swiss, but not to worry it is not serious despite the fact he might not play the rest of the trip. It is just for precautions.

5. Girls soccer will open the fall season of Butler Athletics on August 21st against Western Kentucky, before coming home and playing Purdue in the Bowl on the 23rd. This is going to be an exciting year!

6. And finally, got a makeover and was revealed last week. I encourage you to check it out and order some tickets for this season's teams.

Look forward to more news soon!
