He is a proven winner who is in the business of developing young men who desire success on the field, in the classroom and in the community.

Bowling Green's hockey team entered the season with high expectations.
Now that Falcons are at the midway point of the season, they're still in a good spot in the Western Collegiate Hockey Association.
But it's been a difficult first half for the Falcons, who have survived three major injuries, a difficult schedule, five long road trips and ineffective play from some key veterans.
"If you would have said to me on Sept. 1 that we would be .500 with all of those things, and those are things all teams have to deal with, I probably would have taken it," BG coach Chris Bergeron said.
BG is 8-8-4 overall and 6-6-2 in the WCHA, good for a tie with Bemidji State for third place in the 10-team league.
The Falcons and Bemidji State each have 14 points to trail Ferris State with 22 points and Minnesota State with 18. Ferris and MSU each have played two fewer games.

MOREHEAD, Ky. — Richaun Holmes scored Bowling Green’s final nine points of the game as the Falcons’ men’s basketball team rallied for a 67-61 win over Morehead State Sunday.
The Falcons are now 5-5 overall, having won three of their last four games.
‘‘Richaun started slow, but he picked it up in the second half, and made some big free throws for us,’’ BG head coach Louis Orr said. ‘‘Richaun takes a lot of pride in his free-throw shooting.’’
The road win was the first non-conference road win for Bowling Green since a 61-53 win at Florida International on Dec. 22, 2011. It’s the first overall road win for the Falcons since last season, a 57-41 win at Northern Illinois on Feb. 6, 2013.

Adam Scheier threw in a wrinkle to end Sunday’s practice by the Bowling Green Falcon football team.
The Falcons practiced Saturday and Sunday at Perry Field House, and the final session of Sunday’s practice featured the No. 3 offense against the No. 3 defense in a full-contact scrimmage.
‘‘We finished with our first-ever annual ‘Ay Ziggy Zoom Bowl’ with the threes out there in a live scrimmage,’’ said Scheier, BG’s interim head coach.  ‘‘The ones and twos were on the side, half coaching them up, and half rooting them on. It was a good way to end practice.
‘‘It was a chance to reward them, a chance to shine in front of the ones and twos. It was a great opportunity for them,’’ Scheier added.
For most of the season, the third team players run the plays of the opponent for the Falcons’ offense, defense and special teams.
‘‘That’s the future of our program,’’ Scheier said about the third team players. ‘‘You have always got to develop those guys, You can’t wait until spring ball to develop your threes. They are getting developed with their Red Dawn lifts that they do on Friday mornings. They are getting developed as scout players by going against the ones and the twos; that makes them better.
‘‘Any opportunity you have to get them in the limelight, and give them a chance to perform certainly adds to their development.’’
