Jacobs family gives largest gift in Central Methodist history
10/29/2014

The largest charitable gift in the 160-year history of Central Methodist University was announced on Saturday during CMU Homecoming festivities – and rather than having a building named after themselves, the donors asked that it be named in honor of others.
Jay and Kelly Jacobs, of Laguna Niguel, Calif., have given $3.6 million to support CMU’s Campaign for the Heart of Central. CMU President Roger Drake made the announcement during an alumni tailgate party on Saturday.

Eagles’ experienced roster eyes NAIA tournament bid

Eagles’ experienced roster eyes NAIA tournament bid
Jeff Sherman isn’t going to be shy about it. In fact, he’ll repeatedly tell you how much he likes his 2014-15 men’s basketball team.
He doesn’t sound like a coach whose team came so close to the improbable last year, taking a team that started the season 7-9 and potentially came within one basket of reaching the NAIA national tournament. Sherman doesn’t sound like a coach who lost and All-American and one of the greatest players he has coached in 29 seasons at Central Methodist.
For a Hall of Fame coach getting ready to begin his 30th season at the helm of the Eagles, Sherman sounds more like a first-year coach who can’t wait for the season to start Saturday when Central Methodist travels to St. Louis to play Concordia Seminary.

Leading by as many as 13 points in the opening minute of the fourth quarter, Glasgow saw its comfortable lead shrink to a one-possession nailbiter. Despite a furious comeback by Sturgeon, the Yellowjackets were able to hang on for a 47-42 win in Cairo, capturing their second CAC junior high basketball title in three years.

Fayette dominates Santa Fe for district win
For the past six years, the Fayette football coaches have spent the Monday after Week 10 cataloging their equipment inventory and collecting players’ uniforms following a district loss that ended the season.
Not this year. Not this time. Coaches and players were busy doing other things Monday, like getting ready for a Week 11 matchup.
Fayette’s offense exploded for 424 total yards and the defense nearly recorded its first shutout of the season Friday night. The Falcons won their first road game of the season, knocking off Santa Fe 44-6 in Alma. It’s the first time Fayette’s football season will extend past Week 10 since 2007, when the Falcons won a district championship.
