UTEP Athletics’ Orange Fever Fiesta set for El Paso Zoo

For the first time, UTEP Athletics’ annual Orange Fever Fiesta fundraising event will be held at the El Paso Zoo.

The event returns on Saturday, May 30, with all proceeds supporting Miner student-athlete scholarships.

“Orange Fever Fiesta returns bigger and better than ever in the most exotic of locations, the El Paso Zoo,” UTEP Director of Athletics Jim Senter said.  “This is always a wonderful event for a tremendous cause, to raise monies for student-athlete scholarships.  I invite all Miner fans to join me, our head coaches and staff and kick off the Summer with this exciting adventure.”

The evening gets underway at 6 p.m., and this year’s event will feature casino tables.  Attendees will enjoy an array of delicious food and beverage options, live music, and the opportunity to bid on numerous rare live and silent auction items.

The El Paso Zoo, located at 4001 East Paisano Drive, is an expansive 35-acre green space that is home to animals from around the world and features family attractions such as the African Star Train, the Hunt Family Splash Pad, Foster Tree House Playground, and the Hunt Endangered Species Carousel.

Individual tickets to Orange Fever Fiesta are $125, and tables of 10 are available for $1,125. Sponsorship opportunities and packages are also available.

To purchase tickets, or for more information,  go online, email mac@utep.edu or call (915) 747-8759.

Kai Locksley reinstated to UTEP Football Team

UTEP Director of Athletics Jim Senter and head football coach Dana Dimel announced on Friday that the suspension to Kai Locksley has been lifted, and he has been reinstated to the UTEP football team.

“While the legal process has not come to a complete conclusion, we believe that the final charges against Kai will not be as severe as what has been reported,” Senter said.

“Young people make mistakes and it is important that they learn from these mistakes.  We believe in restorative justice and feel that Kai will benefit more in the long run by getting the necessary support and guidance from his coaches and teammates, rather than being dismissed from the team.”

“While we welcome Kai back to our football team, I want to make it very clear that he will have a list of expectations placed on him,” Dimel said.  “We will keep these expectations in-house, but a zero tolerance policy will be in effect.  The rest is up to Kai, but we’re hopeful that he can come out of all this the best possible person and teammate.”

A senior quarterback from Fort Washington, Md., Locksley played in nine games for the Miners in 2018 with eight starts.  He threw for 937 yards and three touchdowns, and rushed for 340 yards with six scores.
