Outfitted in his signature 50/50 apron and an orange BGSU sweatshirt and ball cap, Wil Hesselbart calls out to those headed to the men's basketball game at the Stroh Center that "You can't win without a ticket."
It's his signature line - and apparently a line that works well.
Most would agree, raising $136,000 for the Falcon Club, a fundraising arm for BGSU Athletics, isn't too shabby.
The 86-year-old has been selling 50/50 raffle tickets for the Falcon Club for 16 years.
"I just keep going. I hit 80 years old and I felt good so I told myself I am just going to keep selling," said Hesselbart during his pre-game ticket sale before a recent BGSU men's basketball game.

PERRYSBURG - School board seats continue to be a hot commodity, as five people have sought a vacancy to be decided this month.
Seeking a spot on the board are Valerie Hovland, Jason Decker, Eric Benington, William J. Davis III and Ken Widdel.
Hovland is an outgoing member of the board who wishes to stay on after not winning re-election in November. Decker was one of five challengers for three school board positions in that election. Gretchen Downs was retained, earning the most votes of any candidate.
The opening was created when Barry Van Hoozen won a seat on city council in the November election and resigned his school board post Dec. 24. Incoming school board members Cal Smith and Sue Larimer will be among those to choose Van Hoozen's successor after being elected to replace Hovland and Mark Schoenlein.
Hovland was the highest vote-getter to not win a seat in the election, garnering 2,110 votes, compared to Larimer, 2,347 votes, and Smith, 2,254 votes. Decker tallied 1,621 votes.
Van Hoozen's unexpired term runs through the end of 2015.

Wood County is one of the strongest agricultural counties in Ohio, with a variety of crops and livestock produced.
Members of the Wood County Farmers Union are a united force working towards the sustainabililty of family farms.
Despite the strengths of local agriculture, there are obstacles on the horizon which can challenge producers.
At a recent meeting of several members, along with Roger Wise, president of the Ohio Farmers Union, they spoke about some of the challenges facing area farmers.
While the organization focuses on a wide spectrum of issues facing growers, at this meeting they addressed three primary concerns, genetic changes in seeds, factory farms and ethanol.
GMO seeds
Phil Bresler, president of the Wood County group, is very concerned about the recent study showing that genetically modified organisms create potential health hazards to humans.
The GMOs are largely controlled by major corporations such as Monsanto.

No butts about it, BGSU smoking ban in effect PDF Print E-mail

Students, staff and visitors to campus will have to take their butts to certain parking lots under a new university smoking policy that took effect this week.
Bowling Green State University passed the measure last June that bans all smoking on campus, with the exception of a handful of designated parking lots. The change went into effect Wednesday, the first day of 2014.
In addition to the designated parking lots, smoking is permitted within personal vehicles.
Lots where smoking is permitted are generally spread throughout campus. A notable shortcoming, however, exists near Doyt Perry Stadium, where Falcon fans gather to watch football games. The nearest designated area is in the Stroh Center parking lot, more than a short walk away from the stadium gates if you're stepping away to have a quick smoke.
