The Arkansas Tech University Alumni Association will recognize ATU faculty and staff members of the game throughout the 2021 football season and at select games during the 2021-22 basketball season.

Pete Kelly, senior instructor of health and physical education, was named ATU faculty member of the game and Brent Linker, director of athletic facilities, was selected as staff member of the game when the Wonder Boys hosted the University of Arkansas-Monticello on Saturday, Sept. 25.

ATU faculty, staff and students are eligible to make nominations for the award. Winners will be chosen at random among all qualifying nominations.

The ATU Student-Athlete Advisory Committee is partnering with the ATU Alumni Association to make the initiative possible.
