The UALR Student-Athlete Ambassador Program is back. The Department of Athletics has chosen two representatives from the basketball teams to express their appreciation for the support they receive.
The student-athlete ambassadors for 2012 are Will Neighbour and Taylor Ford. Will is the top returning scorer and rebounder from last year's West Division Championship team and was a Second Team All-Sun Belt Conference selection. Taylor, the Trojan's starting point guard, led the women's team in assists as they claimed their third-straight Sun Belt Conference Championship title and third-straight NCAA Tournament appearance. Will and Taylor will both be returning to the court as juniors for the 2012-2013 season.
Will and Taylor are making visits to those who support their programs. They are also encouraging folks in the community to come out this season and check them out on the court.
