She has been a football manager for all four years. She picked up the role of basketball manger her sophomore year, and this spring she will be adding track and field to her resume.

Faith says “Everyone was so welcoming on and off campus and everyone had something good to say about NDSU. NDSU will give me opportunities and challenges that will help me advance in my future endeavors.” Faith will me majoring in Sports Management to pursue a career with the NCAA or NFL.
Faith would like to thank her friends and family, but especially her sister Alicynn Delancy for always being her biggest supporter and constantly being there for her. She thanks her parents for allowing her to follow her dreams and the countless hours they have put into her career. Her friends, Haley Rutledge and Amber Allyn, always encourage her and push her along her way and she is thankful for that as well. Faith would also like to thank all of her coaches and teammates for always welcoming her and pushing her to do her best. Not to be left out, Faith would like to give a huge thank you to all the parents of her teammates for always supporting her and trusting her to do her job. The love and encouragement you all have given her has not gone unnoticed. Faith says “Without everyone I would not be where I am today. So thank you!”
While she also wanted to thank the Athletic Department, we are the ones who owe her a debt of gratitude! Faith has been very instrumental in helping us maintain our level of sanity during these difficult times as she has been more than willing to jump in and help on whatever we need her to do. She has grown into an integral part of our office and has taken the initiative to help complete the daily, weekly, yearly tasks, etc, that all go on behind the scenes in support of our programs, athletes and coaches. She epitomizes #ALLIN!
