My college football coach is retiring after the 2005 season, marking the end of a 29 year career with the Beloit College Buccaneers. Looks like the Bucs are not doing so great this year, struggling through a so so season. They’re currently a middling 3-5, though they shut out Knox last week 38-0, their first shut out in 10 years.
Boy I still remember that game at St. Norbert’s in 1990. That was a hell of an effort, probably the best game I’ve ever played. It was a come from behind, overtime win against the perennial powerhouse in the Midwest Conference. Our victory won Beloit the North Division title and the right to host the conference championship. It was definitely the apex of my football career, especially since we were routed two weeks later in the championship game. At least we have that great battle against St. Norbert’s to cherish.
Congratulations Coach DeGeorge, on a long and fruitful career.
