(April 6, 2010)--As part of Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM), UTSA Counseling Services and the Women's Resource Center will join rape crisis centers across Texas to promote awareness of the issue. Teal is the signature color chosen to commemorate SAAM events nationwide.

As part of UTSA efforts, there is a series of events focusing on men including the "Are You a Real Man?" workshop at 5 p.m., Thursday, April 8 in Recreation and Wellness Center Room 1.806 on the Main Campus. There are many ways to measure a man; this workshop will be an interactive and fun discussion about men, masculinity, media and gender violence.

The judges ruled that because the victim was wearing tight jeans, she must have helped her attacker remove them, thus implying consent.

Football standouts make Roadrunner history

For Ashaad Mabry and Triston Wade, football is not just a passing fancy. Both players were part of the UTSA football program almost from the beginning. When UTSA opens the 2015 season Thursday at Arizona, it will be the first time the Roadrunners take the field without them. But Mabry and Wade will still be playing football; their uniforms will just be a different color.

Mabry, a defensive tackle from San Antonio's MacArthur High School, was an honorable mention All-Conference USA selection his final two seasons as a Roadrunner and second among the team's defensive linemen with 49 tackles last year. Wade, a defensive back from Tyler, was the most decorated player in school history. He was a semifinalist for the 2014 Jim Thorpe Award – for the nation's top defensive back – a three-time all-conference honoree and two-year team captain who set a school record of 293 tackles in his career. Both men had outstanding college careers that allowed them to make UTSA history.

Did you know? Mabry and Wade both agreed to terms as undrafted free agents with the New Orleans Saints and Seattle Seahawks, respectively, becoming the first UTSA players to move to the professional ranks.
