FRANKLIN PIERCE ATHLETICS ALL-TIME TOP 50: Part One (Sept. 28, 2012)

Part One of a Five-Part Series Featuring the 50 Most Important Figures in Athletic Department History

RINDGE, N.H. (September 28, 2012) -- During the 2012-13 school year, Franklin Pierce University will be celebrating the institution's 50th Anniversary (1962-2012). The year-long celebration will kick off this weekend with the Alumni & Reunion Weekend on the Rindge campus.

As part of this year-long celebration, the Department of Athletics will be releasing a Top-50 List of the most important people in program history. The list will include student-athletes, coaches, administrators and contributors. It will recognize the people who have helped shape Athletics into the successful operation it is today.

Starting today, Athletics will be releasing 10 honorees a month throughout the fall and winter months. Today's 10 honorees will comprise September/October, while November's 10 honorees will be released on Monday, Nov. 19. December's 10 honorees will be released on Friday, Dec. 21 and January's 10 honorees will be released on Friday, Jan. 24. The final 10, which were deemed as the top-10 most influential figures in department history, will be announced on Friday, Feb. 22.

A committee was formed last winter to discuss and vote on the list. The committee was comprised of current and former athletic department staff, and non-athlete alumni. The group met several times and were involved in productive debates to put together this special list. They are very proud of their work and think Ravens fans all over the world will enjoy looking back at the names, faces and moments which helped to shape the department.

This month's 10 honorees include Mike Adams (baseball); Ewa Bergsten (women's soccer); Juanita Brown (women's basketball); Kristen Clarke (field hockey); David Clifton (men's soccer); Kevin Calhoun (men's basketball); Steve Hancock (women's basketball head coach); Rachel Smith (women's soccer); Joe Obidiegwu (men's tennis); and Colleen Dunleavy (women's basketball/softball/volleyball).
