Centrum Arena Renamed America First Credit Union Events Center

SUU‘s Centrum Arena will now be called the America First Credit Union Events Center!

I have a feeling the locals will still call it the Centrum. Catchy and much easier to say. America First isn’t even a local company.

America First will pay $1.5 million for ten years for the naming rights.

The SUU Centrum hosts SUU basketball, gymnastics and volleyball, concerts, graduations, high school basketball tournaments and Utah Summer Games events.

John Ursua Added to Biletnikoff Award Watch List

John Ursua, former Cedar High football player and current wide receiver at Hawaii has been added to the Biletnikoff Award watch list! Future NFL player from Cedar City? Maybe.

The 2017 Biletnikoff Award winner will be presented live on December 7, 2017, on The Home Depot College Football Awards Show. The show will be broadcast from 7:00-9:00 p.m. EST on ESPN. Biletnikoff Award voter Desmond Howard will present the 2017 Biletnikoff Award winner on the show.

Ursua and the Warriors will take the field again this Saturday at Aloha Stadium vs. Colorado State at 6 PM HT.
