North Texas Head Football Coach Dan McCarney, members of his staff and Athletic Director Rick Villarreal will host a signing-day reception to discuss the 2013 recruiting class on February 6, at 6 p.m. in the Club Level of Apogee Stadium.
George Dunham of Sports Radio 1310 The Ticket and the Mean Green Radio Network will be master of ceremonies, Coach McCarney will talk about the recruiting class and answer questions, and a highlight video featuring the incoming recruits will be shown. Food (provided by Sweetwater Grill and Tavern and including hamburgers, fried chicken, smoked sausage and desert) and drink will be served, and a cash bar will be available. Cost is $10 for Mean Green Club members and $20 for non-members.
North Texas All-Century Football Team
This year marks the 100th anniversary of the start of Mean Green football, and, beginning February 6, fans can help select the North Texas All-Century Football Team.
A 25-person selection panel made up of North Texas Athletics Hall of Fame members, football lettermen, sports-information personnel, and members of the media - including Joe Greene, Jordan Case, George Dunham, Bill Mercer, Dave Barnett, Ken Bahnsen, Bill Carrico, Toby Gowin, C. Dan Smith, Patrick Cobbs and Byron Gross - chose the more than 120 players that made the ballot. Fan voting starts February 6 and ends on March 13. The online ballot will go live on meangreensports.com on February 6, and paper ballots will be available at North Texas basketball games, the North Texas Athletic Ticket Office, or by contacting the athletic department.
The final All-Century roster will be determined by the fan vote (which will count 50 percent toward the final decision) and by a selection committee, and the team will be announced on April 13 at the Green-White Spring Football Game at Apogee Stadium.
A poster of the All-Century Team will be printed and will be given to 2013 season ticket buyers. The poster, featuring photos of all team members, will also be available for purchase.
The votes are already rolling in, so click here to view all the candidates and vote.
