Bo Atterberry

Texas A&M-Kingsville head football coach, Bo Atterberry, was the guest speaker at the Sunrise Rotary Club meeting on July 22.  Bo talked about the upcoming football season (which he is very upbeat about), some of the new players joining the team, and what it will take for another successful season.

He also talked about the team's off-the-field accomplishments - participating in numerous community engagement projects, contributing to the Javelina athletic department winning the Lone Star Conference Community-Engagement Award of Excellence, and success in the classroom.  He highlighted returning safety, DeIra Glover, recently named a finalist for the Allstate AFCA Good Works Team - an honor reserved for student-athletes who stand out for their positive influence in their communities.
