Greetings Aztec Supporters!
What a time to be an Aztec! In 2013, the Aztecs won eight (8) Mountain West championships! We honored a school record 305 scholar athletes. We had a national champion in Shanieka Thomas in
the triple jump, eight (8) teams advanced to NCAA post-season play and seven (7) coaches were honored with Coach of the Year Honors. SDSU is also one (1) of five (5) schools make four (4) straight bowl games in football and appear in five (5) consecutive NCAA Tournaments in Men's Basketball. These are exciting times on the Mesa!
You should be proud of the student-athletes who compete in the classroom and on the field of
competition every day. When their coach asks them to give it their all, they respond. As an
athletic department, our goal is to graduate student-athletes and win championships. To do this
at a national level, SDSU Athletics must continue to perform at the highest level possible.
The support of the Aztec community is critical now more than ever. We need your assistance in this process, in order to maintain momentum for our student-athletes and programs. Here are some ways in which you can help us continue in our success:
- 1. Join the Aztec Club. Our student-athlete scholarship bill is currently over $7.4 million, and will only continue to increase in the future. In order to provide the necessary resources to our student-athletes, scholarship support must be a priority for our fundraising efforts here at SDSU. If you are already an Aztec Club member, thank you for your continued support. We ask that you please consider an increase in your annual gift and help us by telling your friends, family members and colleagues about the Aztec Club. You truly make a difference in the lives of our student-athletes!
- 2. Purchase season tickets for our sports. We offer affordable pricing for our season tickets and we can assure you the entertainment value is well worth it. With our continued success, San Diego State Athletics is the hottest ticket in town! We want opponents to feel the energy of our fan-filled competition venues!
On behalf of 500 plus student-athletes, 19 head coaches, numerous assistant coaches and staff members, thank you for your interest in Aztec Athletics. Your investment in Aztec Athletics is greatly appreciated!
We look forward to seeing you at an Aztec event in the near future! Go Aztecs!
