Coyotes launch ’605′ campaign

The University of South Dakota Athletic Department announced a new �605� merchandise campaign featuring its new SD Paw logo inside a red and white image of the numbers.  The numbers represent the phone area code of the state which the Coyotes initially are claiming with their color combination.

The �605� program will launch with a red hat, a white hat and red t-shirt during the football season and proceeds will benefit SAAC (Student-Athlete Advisory Committee).  Other variations of the hat and shirt will be produced in white and black combinations and will be announced in the future via the athletic department web site ( or by calling Director of Athletic Marketing and Promotions Neal Bendesky at 605-677-5922. New orders can be placed exclusively via South Dakota Athletics.

SAAC is comprised of current Coyote student-athletes and is involved in yearly community outreach and fund-raising projects to benefit local groups in Vermillion and surrounding areas.  The �605� program extends the organization�s identity for its school as the students represent the Coyotes on and off the field.

�We are very proud of the efforts of SAAC and our new �605� campaign seems like a very good compliment for our 350 student-athletes as they reach out to help area groups,� said Director of Athletics David Sayler.  �We encourage our fans and supporters to order items to support their efforts.�
