Legendary Coaches Campaign
They had just one day. Yet the impact would last forever.
Three coaches pored over details all day and night to answer what was needed in a new facility for Doane's students. In 1969, Fuhrer Field House was born. More than 30 years later, Bob Erickson '57, Fred Beile and Al Papik '50 are campus legends. Their stories - their impact on students - live on in many alumni.
The Legendary Coaches Campaign seeks to honor and preserve the memory of these outstanding coaches, while continuing their tradition of service to students. Your donations will help expand Fuhrer Field House, resurface Simon Field, and complete the George and Sally Haddix Recreation and Athletic Center-the very places in which these three men shaped their programs and their students.
