Fred left Michigan to attend NWMSU in order to play football and to receive his degree in Physical Education and Math. He loved the Bearcats and playing football. Fred had limited resources but found odd jobs and received encouragement and support from his Northwest family of faculty and friends. He graduated in 1960 and went on to have a 34 year career in teaching and coaching (Maryville, MO and Royal Oak, MI). Fred touched the lives of many young students. Hopefully, this scholarship will allow another young athlete to continue his/her college career and to go on to positively influence other young lives.
