Athletics Director’s Note

The desire to compete is inherent in all of us, and we must use that desire to build strong personal character. Shepherd University is an ideal institution for student-athletes who love competition. A Shepherd student-athlete should also exhibit a desire to use sports as a promotional tool for Christ, who is the source of all strength and ability. Athletics is our passion because it affords us both a competitive outlet and an opportunity for ministry.

Shepherd Athletics would like to recognize Darrion Hatfield for his service as Basketball Co-Captain. Hatfield demonstrates great character and leadership on and off the court. For this reason he was chosen to represent the HERD Basketball Team at the Glendale YMCA's Annual Awards Gala held on Nov 10th at the Glendale Renaissance Banquet Hall.


“The five S’s of sports training are: stamina, speed, strength, skill, and spirit; but the greatest of these is spirit.” - Ken Doherty
