                                   A note from our historian Harold Heitmann

                                  on our upcoming game with Elon

The Blue Hens travel to Elon, North Carolina, to meet the Phoenix in the last game of the 2015 season.  Coach Rich Skrosky will be completing his second season at Elon. 

The Phoenix started playing football in 1909 and have compiled 482 wins, 398 losses and 18 ties through 2014.  They played as an Independent until 1930 when they joined the Conference Carolina from 1930 to 1974, then the South Atlantic Conference from 1975 to  1996.  The school was a Independent Division II team 1992 - 1998 they moved up to a IAA Independent from 1999 to 2001.  Joined the Big South in 2002 and then the Southern Conference in 2003 where they remained until becoming a member of the Colonial Conference in  2014.

Elon was founded in 1989 by the Christian Connection which later became the Church of Christ.  It is no longer affiliated with the Church but keeps in contact because of the historical significance.  The nickname was chosen because of the 1923 fire that destroyed a large part of the campus.  Phoenix translated means "to rise from the ashes".  The Phoenix was a mythical creature that rose from the ashes of its predecessors. 

November 2015, has been a sad one for Elon.  On November 4, football legend Bobby Hedrick died suddenly.  He was the schools all time rushing leader from 1977 - 1980.  Hedrick rushed for 5604 yards and scored 65 TD's

Dimitri Allison, age 21, who was a star receiver for Elon, died from a 10 story fall.  No one as yet has discovered why he was at NCU.

The Blue Hen Touchdown (BHTD) Club is seeking companies and/or individuals to become our partners/sponsors. The BHTD Club  has been in existence  for over 50 years, and currently has over 200 members that  are dedicated to fulfilling a mission of  promoting and supporting the University of Delaware Football Program.   We do this by honoring the outstanding offensive, defensive and special teams player of the week (as selected by the coaches) with awards at luncheons attended by players, their families and members of the coaching staff. Annually the Club hosts a banquet to honor the graduating Senior players, at which special awards are given for various categories. All Senior players are recognized with an award for their contribution to the Team during their career. Funding for these activities, such as awards, luncheons and dinners for football players, coaches and other guests comes from the membership dues and contributions. The Blue Hen Touchdown Club has also been able to make other contributions, and while the players, coaches and the University value the Clubs efforts we want to make a greater impact on the Program by funding a football scholarship. Your partnership/sponsorship with help defray current expenses mentioned above and will enable us to progress toward this goal.
