Honoring Dan Droze

This past weekend, former Georgetown Assistant Coach Dan Droze was honored for his outstanding service to Georgetown Football. Scotty Glacken's spouse Margaret Glacken, Gridiron Club President '04, Vice President Rory Coakley '82, and Hoyas Unlimited Associate Director Doug Yopp were on hand to recognize Dan during half-time.

As a member of coach Glacken's staff, coach Droze worked with the defensive backfield, including all-America selections Jim Chesley, Alex Poulos, and Jim Corcoran.

For 24 seasons, coach Droze mentored young men on the field and off, as he preached the ideal of "a sound mind in a sound body." During this time, the football program grew from a intercollegiate club team to a varsity program competing in the NCAA small college division.

Twice in those years, the Hoyas finished in the top ten of best small college teams in the East. The 1978 team finished 7-1, the best showing by a Georgetown team since 1939, and came within a single point of finishing the season undefeated.

If not for the selfless contributions of Scotty Glacken and assistants like Dan Droze, Georgetown football would not have survived and prospered as it did.
