11 NCAA Div. III national team championships
PELLA — Central College fans have an opportunity to get updates on the Dutch through the next Central Coaches’ Chalk Talk Tuesday at noon in the meeting rooms of the Central Market.
The in-season coaches will provide the latest information on their teams and answer questions from the audience.
Also participating will be Central football defensive coordinator Don De Waard, who will talk about his experiences at the Tazon de Estrellas Dec. 15 in Guadalajara, Mexico. De Waard served as head coach for a team of Division III all-stars which defeated a team of Mexican collegiate stars, 32-15. Four Central seniors--linebacker Seth Carson (Woodridge, Ill., Downers Grove South HS), wide receiver Ben Lechtenberg (Manchester, West Delaware HS), linebacker Andrew Weaks (Fulton, Ill.) and offensive lineman Colton Smith (Kearney, Mo.)—were members of the U.S. squad. Central athletic training education program director John Roslien served as the squad’s player personnel director while Frank Neu was the head athletic trainer.
There is no charge for attendance and fans can purchase lunch through Central’s Dining Services if they wish.
In the final Chalk Talks of the 2012-13 year, Central’s spring sports will be highlighted March 27 and May 1.
