                                   A note from our historian Harold Heitmann

                                                 on our upcoming game with Pitt

Our Blue Hens begin the 2014 football season traveling to the Heinz Stadium where they will meet the Pittsburg Panthers for the first time.  Delaware is determined to improve on its 7-5 record and return to the FCS playoffs.

The opening game with Pittsburgh is a big challenge.  They are in the Atlantic Coast Conference where they compete for a major bowl appearance.  In the past they have played in the Sugar, Cotton, Gator, Rose, Fiesta, Sun, Tangerine, Citrus, Insight and Continental Tire Bowls.

In Pittsburgh for 102 years, they have been led by outstanding coaches.  Legendary coach Pop Warner compiled sixty wins and only 12 losses between 1915-23 which included three Eastern Championships.

Another legend, Jock Sutherland, led the Panthers to 111 wins verses 20 losses between 1928-34.  His teams won the National Championship five times, seven Eastern Championships and played in the Rose Bowl four times.

Other winning coaches followed such as John Michelson, Johnny Majors and Jackie Sherrill.  The 1976 Majors squad went undefeated compliling a 12-0 record.  They won the National Championship after defeating Georgia 27-3 in the Sugar Bowl.  Jackie Sherrill, duing his reign as head coach, won 50 games while losing only nine.  His teams compiled wins in the Gator, Sugar and Fiesta Bowls. 

All American players at Pitt include Jock Sutherland, Marshall Goldburg, Bill Daddio, Mike Dika, Tony Dorsett, Matt Cavanaugh, Dan Marino and Hugh Green.

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.
