San Diego State’s Wicker on Recent Football Success

In conjunction with our partners at D1.ticker, Turnkey Search is pleased to present “1.Question”, an audio feature in D1.ticker’s daily email newsletter. “1.Question” features brief interviews with high level collegiate athletic administrators.

San Diego State Athletic Director John David Wicker chats with 1.Q about the recent success his football program has enjoyed, including a big win over Stanford last Saturday that set an all-time high in gross gate revenue for the Aztecs. Wicker notes the opportunity ahead for his department to capture the complete attention of the marketplace with the exodus of the San Diego Chargers to Los Angeles, and shares how much time he spends on a weekly basis working through football’s facility future.
