Re: “The fire still burns for Mike Newell

Newell will bring wins to Dillard, along with the pizazz this ball team deserves!! When Newell’s Un. of Little Rock, AR, team upset Notre Dame, with Bill Clinton in audience, that place rocked like never before. Thud went the Irish, & the Trojans went to the NCAA!! Under Newell’s motto, “When the Going Get’s Tough, The Tough Get Going,” fans came out in droves. He was inducted into the UALA Athletics Hall of Fame, and UALR has never been the same. While Asst Coach at OU, when Billy Tubbs was out, Newell stepped in and took the OU Sooners straight to the Big 8 Championship. Newell went on to coach at Lamar-Beaumont, UAM-Arkansas.

Newell’s humble beginnings were small-town, Hoosier-land, and his career start under Press Maravich @LSU stood him well. While at Sam Houston State, Newell and the Bearkat’s won back-to-back Lone Star conference championships and the coveted NAIA tournament. He was inducted into Sam Houston State’s, Hall of Honor Members. “No matter how lofty the goal is, I’m not afraid to say it.” ~~ Mike E. Newell
