(Oct. 30, 2012) -- One hundred twelve UTSA students, faculty, staff, alumni and friends came together Friday, Oct. 19 to participate in the annual UTSA Homecoming Golf Tournament hosted at Silverhorn Golf Club in San Antonio.

The tournament coincides with a collection of other homecoming and game-day programs aimed to strengthen student, faculty, staff, alumni and community relationships and create bonds to The University of Texas at San Antonio. The money raised from the event assists students employed at Campus Recreation to attend national and regional conferences and workshops, which further their education and give them exposure to the fields of leadership development, university recreation, higher education, fitness and wellness, facility management, intramural and club sports, and marketing and outdoor recreation.

"I just wanted to thank you again for putting on such a great tournament! I play a few each year, and the UTSA one is the most well run and fun. Y'all do a great job," said UTSA alumnus Brian Kendall.

Congratulations to Luke Healy, J.R. Camahan, Kaden Duncan and Dustin Martin for shooting a 55 to win the tournament, as well as Closest to the Pin winners Kristen Kline and Ryan Lackey, and Longest Drive winners Laura Munroe and Mark Miller.

Special thanks go to UTSA Athletic Director Lynn Hickey for her opening remarks, as well as the UTSA Campus Recreation staff, the student organization volunteers from Pro-Rec and Men of Honor, and the organizations and businesses that made this tournament a success: Quality Hardwood Floors, Matera Paper Co., Enterprise Rent-A-Car, Sprint, Crown Trophy, UTSA Athletics, UTSA Bookstore, CC Creations, Alamo Tees, Mission Restaurant Supply, Hillyard Inc., Rialto Jewelry, DAP Construction, Edwin Watts, Frost Bank at UTSA, Dixon Golf and the Silverhorn Golf Club.

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.
