Wesley to Honor Legendary Coach Bob Andrus at Opener

DOVER, Del. - The Wesley College Football program was built in large part by legendary Head Coach Bob Andrus. "The Bear," as his players called him, passed away in November of 2015, but his legacy lives on at Wesley.

Coach Andrus was inducted into the Delaware Hall of Fame in 2006. He roamed the Wesley College sidelines for 21 years, won six conference championships, had an undefeated season in 1976 and took his team to a National Championship game in 1970 when he and his team traveled to Kansas to play in the Sterling Silver Bowl. Coach Andrus was more than a coach at Wesley College, he was a mentor, a father and a friend to every player he coached. His legacy survives in the lives of his family and all the Wesley Alumni he coached and devoted his life to. 

At halftime of the Wolverines' contest against the Delaware Valley University Aggies on Friday night the Andrus family will be joined on the field by Wesley College President Robert E. Clark II for a brief ceremony and presentation honoring the legendary head coach.

For alumni attending the game, there will be a reception tent open inside the stadium gates at 5:00 p.m. with an area dedicated to the celebration of Coach Andrus.
