With nearly 30 players being replaced due to graduation, the Borger Bulldog football team will be one that will have several new faces at the varsity level when it opens the 2011 season with the Canyon Randall Raiders at Bulldog Stadium on August 26.
However, the team will return several outstanding players from this yearâ€™s squad, with a couple already attracting the attention of some colleges around the country.
During the May FPC Board of Regents meeting, FPC President Dr. Jud Hicks told the board that the college has decided to suspend the Plainsmen Golf program starting this fall.
This spring, the FPC Golf program was placed on probation by the NJCAA for exceeding the number of scholarships provided to non-U.S. resident students and number of athletes being provided with financial aid.
In talking with Dr. Hicks on Tuesday morning, the college had learned back in December that the golf program had exceeded both numbers, leading the college to turn themselves into the NJCAA.
On Tuesday evening, Borger High School senior Dylan Winkle was selected as the 2010-11 recipient of the T.E. Ward Award.
