(Oct. 12, 2010)--Volunteers are needed to help run a water station with fellow UTSA students and staff -- and to cheer on the numerous UTSA runners that will compete in this year's San Antonio Rock 'N Roll Marathon and Half Marathon on Sunday, Nov. 14.

"We need at least 100 volunteers to help on race day, so encourage your fellow students, faculty and staff to join in as well," said Jessica Figueroa, service chair of the UTSA Honors Alliance student organization. The Honors Alliance is organizing the official UTSA water station for the second year.

UTSA's station is toward the end of the race -- mile 25 for those doing the marathon, mile 12 for the half-marathon. Parking will be provided for volunteers as well as bonus giveaways.

For details and to register as a volunteer, visit the San Antonio Rock 'N Roll Marathon and Half Marathon website. For more information on the UTSA station, call 210-458-7273.

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.
