Etched on a plaque inside
Lycoming College’s Shangraw
Athletic Complex is one of Coach
Frank Girardi’s favorite sayings.
“DARE TO BE GREAT.”
The words are simple, but the
message is timeless. For hundreds
of student-athletes that competed
for Lycoming College between
1972 and 2007, Coach Girardi was
an inspiring source of support and
encouragement, as not only the
legendary head football coach that
will be inducted into the College
Football Hall of Fame in December,
but also as the school’s director of
athletics for 24 years.
To pay tribute to his commitment
to Lycoming’s athletic success,
students and fans of the Warriors
to share their unedited insights on
Facebook and Twitter. These are
only a handful of the many stories
and congratulations shared on
Lycoming’s social media sites.
My favorite quotes
from him were: “Dare to be
great,” and “If you chase after
perfection, you will achieve
excellence.” Congrats Coach!
You are the best!
, “A little hard work
for a lifetime of great memories”
