USU coaches get iced in challenge

The Aggies are working hard in camp, but the preseason isn't without its fun. Utah State coaches participated in an ice bucket challenge to raise awareness for the ALS Association, a charity dedicated to fighting the condition, also called Lou Gehrig's disease.

The challenge has gone viral throughout the country with football teams and TV and movie celebrities getting into the action.

The idea is to get doused, then post pics and videos on social media that also include challenges for others to do the challenge. Those who refuse are asked to make a donation of $100 to the ALS Association.

Coach Matt Wells threw down a challenge for other MWC coaches to participate including Rocky Long (San Diego State), Bobby Hauck (UNLV) , Bryan Harsin (Boise State), Tim DeRuyter (Fresno State) and Jim McElwain (CSU).

According to the ALS Association website, the organization has received $4 million in donations between July 29 and Aug. 12, compared to just $1.12 million last year during the same time period.
