HMA Publications did a blog feature earlier this summer on Mike Lamp, ’84 BS, (photo above) morning host and news producer for Colorado Public Radio’s statewide news service, which airs NPR from Denver. If you listened to KNAU-FM (Flagstaff’s NPR station) in the 90s, you may remember Mike’s voice. Years prior, he also served as overnight DJ for KAFF-Country. In the blog, Mike reflects on his career in broadcasting and journalism with several amusing anecdotes.

Chad Gosar, ’86 BSBA, and his wife Dory Gosar, ’86 BS, have another reason to come back to the mountain campus and flaunt their Lumberjack spirit; their son, Bryce Gosar, plays for the NAU Men’s Basketball team. The freshman knew he wanted to attend NAU and was excited to hear that Jack Murphy took on the role as head coach, so he contacted Murphy and asked him to watch him play.  After watching Bryce at a tournament, Murphy offered him a walk-on spot. Coach Murphy says, “he has really has improved a lot and his confidence, decision-making and strength has got better,” Murphy told NAU athletics. “He has worked hard. He is someone we are going to look to push out guys every single day. Bryce has done a good job for us.”  Read more about basketball freshman Bryce Gosar

Dan Hinds '89 BSCongratulations to former football player Dan Hinds, ’89 BS, (photo on left) who was named 2011-2012 Tribune Coach of the Year earlier this summer by the East Valley Tribune. Coaching at Desert Vista in the southeast Valley of the Sun has allowed Dan to continue the sports dream and share his experience with up-and-coming youth. Dan led the D.V. Thunder to victory in the 2011 Division I Championship game. On strategy for going up against the tough Hamilton team in 2011, Dan said, “We threw all our game tapes out. We gave up three long balls through the air (in the first meeting) and shored that up. We said we’re not playing the 3-time champions or 53(-game winning streak). We’re playing 13-0 (Hamilton) vs. 12-1 (D.V.). It was the only tangible evidence we had in our preparation, but we shared everything with (the kids). Once they saw on the field exactly what we thought they were going to see, they were confident.”  The Thunder has made three semifinals and two championship game appearances since 2007, including the 2011 title victory. Dan has been with the Desert Vista team for a decade and a half now. “I’m not sure I’ve ever done anything in my life for 15 years,” Hinds joked. “I’m having a lot of fun. I hope I get to go another 15.”
