Two more assistants depart Mackovic's football staff; five gone in less than a month

The Wildcat football team lost its fifth coach in the span of a month yesterday when defensive end coach Charlie Camp told head coach John Mackovic that he was leaving to take a job as a linebacker coach at Oregon State.

"When he came here we asked him to coach a spot (defensive ends) that wasn't necessarily his favorite," said Mackovic. "Part of that was that we ran the double-eagle flex, with which he was familiar as a player. Now that we're clearly moving away from the scheme, it's a good chance for him to return to linebackers."

Commentary: Grass greener away from UA

Old Jim Livengood had a farm.

E, I, E, I, O.

And on that farm he had great coaches.

With titles here, and championships there. Here a win, there a win, almost everywhere a win win.

Laxcats face NCAA team

The men's lacrosse team is used to people thinking that it cannot compete with NCAA teams, but tonight the Laxcats will get their chance to strike back, when they host St. John Fisher.

Tonight at 7 p.m. the No. 5 Laxcats (4-1, 3-0) step out of United States Lacrosse Associates action to host a second year NCAA Division III team, St. John Fisher, at Salpointe High School, located at North Mountain Avenue and East Copper Street, not their usual home, Laxcat Coliseum. Head coach Adam Hopkins said the game represents "more than just one game" and is for a "bigger purpose." [Read article]
