The 2014-2015 athletic calendar kicked off on Thursday with the Annual Red Raider Club Luncheon.
Jon Murray, Don Flora, Tom Stone, Kliff Kingsbury, Matt Wallerstedt and Eric Morris all addressed the crowd talking about their team’s outlooks this fall.
Rangers Dugout Reporter and Texas Tech Alum, Emily Jones emceed the event that continues to grow in attendance every year. Texas Tech Athletics Director, Kirby Hocutt, knows this is due to the departments continued growth and success.
“We always look forward to the kickoff event,” Hocutt said. “It's a sellout capacity every year. The Lubbock/West Texas community comes and stands by us. It's going to be an exciting year. I think the anticipation for all our sports is high especially for football and the anticipation of what Coach Kingsbury continues to build here is exciting."
