The story from reporter David Allen focused on a variety of items, including the tenure of fifth-year Director of Athletics Steve Thompson, how philanthropy and major renovations to existing facilities have helped the Red Devils improve, the role Hall of Fame head coach Dave Darnall has played both in the past and now in the present and how local student-athletes have played perhaps the biggest part in the department’s recent success.

Many other prominent campus figures contributed to the story, including President Jamel Santa Cruze Wright, Vice President for Institutional Advancement Mike Murtagh and History Professor Emeritus Dr. Richard Sanders.

The print version of the story is available at multiple locations throughout central Illinois. The online version is available at this link.
