Carthel named head football coach

Colby Carthel has been appointed SFA’s 20th head football coach. Carthel, a proven winner and national champion, led Texas A&M University-Commerce to the pinnacle of NCAA Division II football in 2017. That season, the team captured the program’s first NCAA Division II national championship. With four coach of the year awards, Carthel’s 35 total wins during the past three seasons is almost unprecedented in college football. Of the 27 scholarship programs in Texas, only Carthel-led A&M Commerce and three other programs have had three-straight 10-win seasons in the past 10 years.

Humphreys named Coach of the Year

Leading the Ladyjack volleyball team to the 2018 NCAA Volleyball Tournament this past fall, 31-year head coach Debbie Humphreys received the 2018 Katrinka Jo Crawford Southland Conference Coach of the Year Award. It was Humphreys’ seventh coach of the year recognition by the league.

The Ladyjack volleyball team closed out one of the best seasons in program history. Though they fell 3-0 in the opening round, the Ladyjacks put together a campaign for the ages. SFA headed into the tournament sporting a nation-leading and program record 29-match winning streak. In all, SFA established new program records for wins (32), consecutive wins and winning percentage (.914) during its magical season.
