Raven Track and Field Star Commits to Alabama


A Red Raven track and field star has announced his commitment to a Division 1 program to continue his career.


Sophomore Trevor Gunzell has signed a national letter of intent with the University of Alabama, continuing his career in one of the most prestigious athletic conferences in the country.


He says Alabama felt like the right fit from the start.


Gunzell holds school records in both outdoor shot put and discus. He says those events are similar to prepare for.


Like many athletes, Gunzell has grown in his two years of junior college. He says relationships have improved as he's gotten comfortable.


Since 2007, Coffeyville Track and Field has now helped produce 39 national champions, 552 All-Americans, six Olympic medals, and a World Record.


FULL INTERVIEW w/Trevor Gunzell

Royals Agree to Deal with Garrett Hampson


The Kansas City Royals make their first major league signing of the offseason.


Kansas City agreed to a one-year deal with utility player Garrett Hampson, worth $2 million. Hampson has played six seasons in the major leagues, spending his first five in Colorado before last season with the Miami Marlins.


Hampson is one of the MLB's fastest players, in the 96th percentile for sprint speed. He says the organization's philosophy made this a perfect fit.


Positional versatility is another trait of Hampson, spending time at second base, third base, and all three outfield spots. Royals General Manager JJ Picollo says the team valued that versatility greatly.


Hampson will see time at second, third, and center field for the Royals in 2024.

Ravens Drop Doubleheader to Butler


A frustrating night in Nellis Hall saw winnable games slip away, resulting in a pair of losses against the Butler Grizzlies.


The Lady Ravens drop their first home game of the season 68-50. Freddie Wallace led all scorers with 23 points, while Bailey Layman led the Ravens with 12. Karys Washington had another double-double, posting 11 points and 12 rebounds.


Head coach Tony Turner says his team wasn't fully prepared for Butler's suffocating defense.


Jay Herkelman's team got off to a fast start, leading by 11 early in the second game of the doubleheader. But Butler would show their resilience, battling back and sneaking out a 56-51 road win.


Assistant coach Jake Odum says the offense continued to struggle with knocking down shots.


With another road trip on the schedule this weekend, Odum says the team will need to find some confidence.


The Ravens travel to Goodland to battle the Northwest Kansas Tech Mavericks on Saturday.

Howard Out, Johnson In for Wildcats


It's the changing of the guard at the quarterback position for Chris Klieman.


Senior Will Howard announced his intent to enter the transfer portal earlier this week, opening the door for freshman quarterback Avery Johnson to take over.


Tim Everson of the Manhattan Mercury says the writing was on the wall for a while.


Howard is one of the most accomplished quarterbacks to enter the portal in recent years. Everson says he already has numerous big name schools contacting him.


Wherever Howard ends up going, the primary focus will be on earning a chance to play professional football. Everson says he feels that Howard should look for a specific situation.


Will Howard is a graduate transfer, and will be eligible to play one final season of college football immediately.

Lady Ravens Welcome #3 Butler to Town


A pair of nationally ranked teams and conference championship contenders square off for the first time this season.


The Butler Grizzlies, recently tabbed as the #3 team in the nation, bring an 8-0 record to Nellis Hall for a Wednesday night matchup with the 8-1 Lady Ravens.


Each of these teams have championship expectations, dating back to summer workouts. Head coach Tony Turner says this is a matchup everyone has been waiting for.


Butler showcases talented forwards, led by preseason conference player of the year Freddie Wallace. Turner says his team has the size and depth to match the Grizzlies' physicality.


Coverage of the Lady Ravens and Butler Grizzlies begins tomorrow at 5:15 p.m. CT with tip off at 5:30 on US 98 and the Red Raven Sports Network.

Chiefs Receiver has Charges Dropped


A Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver has pending felony charges dropped following last month's arrest.


Justyn Ross is no longer facing criminal charges, after the Johnson County District Attorney's Office approved the case for diversion.


Ross was arrested on October 23rd, and was facing misdemeanor domestic battery and felony criminal damage charges, stemming from a dispute with his girlfriend. Ross would break several items in the apartment, but it was found that every item damaged was Ross' personal items.


The talented wide receiver is currently on the Commissioner's Exempt List, meaning he is unable to practice or play. It is not known when he'll rejoin the Chiefs.

Wildcat Quarterback to Enter Transfer Portal


It's the dawn of a new era for Kansas State football, with a change at the quarterback position.


Senior Will Howard will enter the transfer portal, following four seasons as the Wildcat signal caller. Howard will be eligible to play elsewhere immediately as a graduate transfer.


Howard saw playing time in all four seasons in Manhattan, filling in for injured quarterbacks Skylar Thompson and Adrian Martinez, before earning the full-time starting job as a junior.


From Downingtown, Pennsylvania, Howard has carved a legacy in Wildcat history, leading the program in career touchdown passes, and leading KSU to the Big 12 Championship last season.


Howard says he will always have fond memories of Manhattan.


True freshman and Maize high school product Avery Johnson has long been anticipated as the KSU quarterback of the future, and now the former four-star recruit will begin his time as QB1 in Manhattan.

Lady Ravens Battle on Road, Set up Ranked Showdown


Different players have stepped up at different times for Tony Turner this season, and that trend continued in a hard-fought road win over Cowley.


The game was back and forth the whole way, tied after the first quarter, the Ravens up seven at half, and Cowley up one after the third quarter. But the veteran Ravens made enough plays late, and escaped with a 66-60 win over the Tigers.


Tetona Woods-Blackowl was the star of the show, posting 18 points with eight rebounds and three assists, with 10 points in the first quarter. Head coach Tony Turner says she was dialed in all afternoon.


Ivy Fox had 13 points, and freshman Karys Washington made nine clutch free throws in the fourth quarter.


The Lady Ravens sit at 8-1 on the season, and are unbeaten thus far in conference play. Their toughest test comes to Nellis Hall on Wednesday, with the unbeaten #6 Butler Grizzlies and star forward Freddie Wallace coming to town.


Turner says the team is already preparing for Butler.


The men fell to Cowley 81-62 in Game 2 of the doubleheader.

Chiefs Solve Second Half Woes in Win over Raiders

Quarterback Patrick Mahomes says the team went back to the basics this week.


Mahomes was efficient all afternoon, only throwing seven incompletions with a pair of touchdown passes to Rashee Rice and Justin Watson. Running back Isaiah Pacheco also scored two touchdowns on the ground.


Tight end Travis Kelce reached 11,000 career receiving yards in the win, becoming the first Chiefs player to ever reach that mark. Kelce is the fastest tight end to 11k yards in NFL history (154 games) and the 17th fastest player ever to reach that mark.

The architect behind Kansas State athletics will be staying in Manhattan for the remainder of the decade.


Athletic Director Gene Taylor has agreed to an extension through the end of the 2029-30 athletic season.


Taylor is responsible for the hirings of both football coach Chris Klieman, who led the Wildcats to a Big 12 championship last season, and men's basketball coach Jerome Tang, who led KSU to the Elite Eight in his first season.


Additionally, Wildcat volleyball has defeated numerous top-10 teams this season, and women's basketball just upset a top-5 team for the second consecutive season.


Taylor has also raised millions in fundraising to support renovations to Bill Snyder Football Stadium, a practice facility for the football program, a new arena for volleyball, and a training center for Olympic programs.

Ravens Split Doubleheader with Cloud County


There were mixed feelings at Nellis Hall following a doubleheader split between the Ravens and Cloud County.


The Lady Ravens opened up a 14-point halftime lead following a 22-3 run to end the half. The Thunderbirds would storm back in the second half, getting as close as two points, but the Ravens would hang on for a 74-63 win in Game 1.


Head coach Tony Turner says his team did a nice job of staying composed.


Kyleigh Ortiz led the team with 22 points, while Jae'Mya Lyons played her first game at CCC, contributing four points, seven rebounds, an assist, and a steal.


Turner says she will be a key piece for this team.


The men struggled against the nation's top scoring defense in Game 2, falling 63-43. CCC shot just 21% from the field, and only made 10 shots as a team on the night.


Assistant coach Jake Odum says it was a frustrating night, and they'll go back to the drawing board.


The Ravens make their first conference road trip on Saturday, traveling to face the Cowley Tigers.

Jayhawks Drop First Game to Marquette


The nation's top team learned for the first time that they aren't invincible.


Kansas struggled for a majority of the evening against Marquette, culminating in a 73-59 loss in the Maui Invitational semifinals.

Head coach Bill Self says it was a challenging game for the team.


The Jayhawks battle Tennessee this afternoon in the Maui third place game.

Lady Raven head coach Tony Turner says his team will need to be aggressive on the glass tonight.


The Lady TBirds have struggled in the first quarter this season. Turner says it's important for his group to get off to a fast start.


Six different players from the Red Raven men's team scored at least 10 points in a win over Pratt. Head coach Jay Herkelman says a balanced scoring effort is key.


Cloud County brings a very unique defense to Nellis Hall. Herkelman says it's a confusing defense to play against.


Coverage of CCC and Cloud County begins at 5:15 p.m. on US 98 and the Red Raven Sports Network.

Red Ravens Name Dobler New Head Football Coach

Dobler also spent eight seasons as defensive coordinator at Kilgore Junior College in Texas, winning two region championships and participating in four bowl games.

Chiefs Struggle in Second Half, Lose Super Bowl Rematch

Kansas City jumped out to a 17-7 lead with a pair of touchdown passes from Patrick Mahomes to Travis Kelce and Justin Watson. Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts scored a pair of second half rushing touchdowns to propel the Eagles to a redemption victory, after dropping the Super Bowl to the Chiefs in February.


The Chiefs are averaging just 5.3 points in the second half this season, worst in the NFL. Kansas City had an opportunity to take the lead late, but wide receiver Marques Valdez-Scantling dropped the deep ball.

Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes says the Eagles are a similar team to last year, and this will be a challenge for the team.
