New Aggie Nation Magazine Showcases Utah State University Sports
Utah State University sports are now more accessible to alumni and fans with the release of a new magazine.
The digital athletics magazine Aggie Nation debuted Wednesday, highlighting the latest news in USU sports.
"The concept was to create a small digital magazine that we could produce several times a year and be able to tell our stories in an online format to Aggies wherever they are," said Kent Stanley, Associate Vice President for Advancement at USU Athletics.
The USU Athletic Development staff has worked on the initial publication for 5 months.
"I think the biggest thing is profiling the student athletes that do so much to represent the university and not just do the sports that everybody knows," said Kraig Williams, USU alumnus and editor-in-chief of the magazine. "There are lots of good stories and lots of good kids and we're just trying to shed light on all the wonderful Aggies that Utah State has."
The publication is scheduled to come out three times a year in October, February and June.
"I just hope people enjoy it," said Williams. "It is definitely something that's for the fans. When I was writing, that was in mind; we want to get people closer to the people that they spend so much time cheering for."
