Subject: The PL Anniversary is about more than Gate's FCS football
In reply to: Steve 's message, "Re: Forgive me for skipping the Silver Anniversary Gala" on 07/25/15 10:45:18am Sat

As much as I enjoy gate '80's renditions of the cycles of Raider football, the fact remains that the reputation of the PL and the role of athletics at Gate no longer rests on the fortunes of FCS football. Without diminishing the significance of Gate and the PL's stewardship missteps of FCS football along the way, the Gate's modern athletics era is being bolstered by more than a one-legged stool. The modern era is characterized by a consistently successful women's soccer program playing a big time schedule, recent success in men's lax, the promise of the new athletic facility on its six constituent teams, the adaptation of Starr and the leadership of Vicki in promoting the student-athlete's experience and its contribution to Gate's distinctive character and niche

And one can characterize the PL's prospects for the future on so many more promising attributes beyond the fortunes of FCS football. And for this, we should be grateful.
