Before the start of a new year of classes and athletic contests on the campuses of members of the American Southwest Conference, a meeting is held of all the Sport Information Directors (SID) in the conference. The meeting is a time for the SID’s from their respective universities to visit with ASC Commissioner Amy Carlton and Assistant Commissioner Jimmy Glenn about the upcoming athletic seasons as well as learn of any NCAA Division III rule changes.
SID’s have the responsibility to report and keep official statistics for every game played. SID’s are usually the first to arrive at the stadium, gym, field, or court, and the last to leave. Since 2008, the ASC has given out a Sports Information Department of the Year award.
This year, ETBU’s SID department led by Adam Ledyard is the co-recipient of this year’s award along with the staff at UT-Tyler.
“I am very humbled by this award and being honored by my peers,” said Ledyard after receiving the award. “I had a great staff last year in Erik Holth, Kayla Franklin, Drew Dawson, and T.J. Barnes helping out. They deserve this award just as much as I do. I am grateful to use my gifts every day that God has given me to use and am thankful for those gifts.”
Congratulations to the ETBU SID staff. Keep up the good work on reporting the great things the #TigerFamily is accomplishing on the field as well as the classroom.
