SDSU Gets 3 Football Commitments

February 09, 1988

The San Diego State football team has received oral commitments from three more high school seniors, who say they will sign letters of intent with the school Wednesday.

Two players--Brian Sells and Tony Nichols--are teammates at Sonora High School in Northern California.

Sells is a 6-foot, 3-inch, 220-pound linebacker. Nichols is a 6-5, 270-pound offensive tackle. Both were members of the Valley Oak League all-star team.

Bill Kushner of Fallbrook said he will accept a half scholarship from SDSU. Kushner, 6-1 and 190 pounds, averaged 40 yards a punt for Fallbrook.


Chris Murphy's grand slam highlighted a six-run fourth inning as the UC San Diego baseball team defeated California Lutheran College, 10-1, Monday in the season-opener for both teams in Thousand Oaks.

Starting pitcher Rick Nowak allowed one hit in five innings to earn the victory. Senior third baseman Thad Ferre was 3 for 5 with 3 RBIs and Matt Bynum and Brian Crawford each added two hits for UCSD.


Steve Dolan will become the Sockers' publicity director, effective Feb. 15.

Dolan has been writing for the Associated Press and The Californian. Dolan replaces Michael Highfill, who resigned Jan. 28.


David Stewart defeated David Harkness in No. 1 singles, 6-4, 6-0, as the University of San Diego beat Brigham Young, 9-0, in a nonconference match at USD. The Toreros (3-2) lost only one set in singles and one set in doubles. BYU is 4-3.


Mike Alexander scored 24 points to lead Southern Utah State to a 122-92 nonconference victory over UC San Diego in Cedar City, Utah. UCSD (13-8), was led by Dan Troy's 25 points. Southern Utah is 15-9.
