Sophomore Alex Huston of Glendale (Springfield, Mo.), who transfered from Coach Mike Mauk's former school in Ohio (Kenton), set the Missouri state record for passing yards in a season after throwing for 538 yards in a 60-41 win over Camdenton last week.

Celina Native Moosbrugger Named SDSU Deputy Director of Athletics
June 18, 2015 - SAN DIEGO - Celina Alum Bob Moosbrugger has been named Deputy Director of Athletics / Chief Operating Officer at San Diego State, as announced Thursday by Director of Athletics Jim Sterk.
Moosbrugger, who has worked in the department for more than 14 years covering two stints, has served as the associate athletic director for development since 2007. In his expanded role, Moosbrugger will now oversee academics, facility development, business, and have expanded involvement with the football and men's basketball programs, all while continuing to manage fundraising.
"I am pleased to announce that Bob will have an expanded role in our department," Sterk said. "Bob has done a terrific job of continuing to increase our fundraising to record levels. His efforts, along with those of his staff, have helped us provide student-athletes with the resources to compete at a national level."
Since returning to San Diego State eight years ago, Moosbrugger has been in charge of the department's record fundraising efforts. He has implemented capital improvement projects, including the construction of the Jeff Jacobs JAM Center (basketball practice facility), Willens Tennis Locker Rooms and the SDSU Softball Stadium clubhouse. He has also raised funds for facility improvements to the Fowler Athletics Center as well as for renovations to the locker rooms for men's basketball, women's basketball and baseball.
In addition, Moosbrugger currently oversees the softball and swimming and diving programs.
"I am humbled and grateful for the opportunity to serve as Deputy Director of Athletics and continue building San Diego State as a national program, said Moosbrugger. "This promotion is thanks to the support of my family, our donors, the student-athletes, staff, coaches and University administration who share the same vision for Aztec Athletics. I am passionate about San Diego State and excited to continue the incredible success of the past five years under Jim Sterk's leadership."
Moosbrugger began his career at Ball State in Muncie, Ind., from 1994 to 1996, as a graduate assistant for the ticket office and marketing department. He then took an assistant ticket manager position at Fresno State from June 1996 to January 1999. Moosbrugger was promoted to athletics ticket manager in 1999 where he remained until March 2000. His responsibilities included the direction of all ticket sales operations for more than 100 athletic and special events planned annually for the Bulldogs.
Moosbrugger came to San Diego State in March 2000 to work as the assistant director for the Aztec Athletic Foundation. He was involved in all operations of the development office.
From February 2006 until September 2007, Moosbrugger served as director of business development at the San Diego International Sports Council. In his position, he helped bring numerous high-profile events to the city.
Moosbrugger is a 1994 graduate of Bowling Green with a degree in sports management. He earned two letters in baseball for the Falcons, winning the 1991 Don Woods Award as the team's freshman of the year. He and his wife, Esther, have two sons, Andrew and Vincent, and reside in San Diego.
Moosbrugger replaces John David Wicker, who accepted the senior associate athletic director position at Georgia Tech.
"The success the San Diego State athletics department has enjoyed is due to great student-athletes, tremendous coaches and hard-working professionals like John David," Sterk said. "I am grateful for his tireless efforts the past four years and wish him, his wife Rachel and their daughter nothing but the best."
