Tech will also have another 4 p.m. practice on Thursday before meeting at Joe Aillet Stadium on Saturday for the scrimmage of the spring. A starting time will be announced later in the week.
“When you take four days off, it’s important for each player to learn how to be disciplined and stay active,” Dooley said.

Christians celebrate hope

Today, during the 9 a.m. and 11 a.m. services, Witt will preach from Matthew 27:52-53 about the resurrection with a sermon titled “When the Saints Go Marching In.”
“The scripture focuses on the Old Testament saints, who came forth from the grave after the resurrection of Jesus, that were marching into the kingdom of God,” Witt said. “The message I’m driving home is through the resurrection of Jesus Christ, the price was paid for the sins of the world, and now salvation is a free gift to anyone who believes and follows Jesus.”

The president of the ULS must be knowledgeable of the unique challenges that face university students today and the workings of the state higher education system, as well as how to best maneuver the ULS for future improvement.

Five years later, heroes remembered

Here we are, 4,000 American troop deaths later. Just like with my life, much has changed about the war, and much has stayed the same.
