The mighty Prof itself
Hey all! I know that the Rowan University football season has been over for a while now and the NFL season has come to an end I am already going through Eagles withdrawal but it’s a beautiful day so I decided to take a stroll over to Richard Wackar Stadium.
So here we are, Richard Wackar Stadium named after former Glassboro State College head coach Richard Wackar. Richard Wackar was a great coach and Rowan University renovated the field and renamed it after him back in 2009 in order to honor his accomplishments. The bleachers in the stadium are able to seat up to 5000 people.
Here we can see the Scoreboard used at the football games. I remember attending my first home game my freshman year and feeling the energy of the crowd. Although Rowan fell short and lost the game it was still a great experience and I had a lot of fun.
Here is a picture of the Profs Logo, this is where all the players meet before the Friday night lights action during the football season. Heads or tails? Which team will get the ball first I am sure that the excitement teams feel when they are meeting here is electric Go Profs!
As a former track and field athlete back in high school of course I had to grab some pictures of the track as well, I miss the pasta parties but lets just say I really don’t miss the leg pain. This track is home to the Rowan University track and field team, the team attended the Penn Relays back in 2015 which is an event I remember attending in high school.I did a few laps around the track since it was so nice outside..but man I really am not in the shape that I was once in.
Well I had a great time enjoying this beautiful weather and taking some pictures of Richard Wackar Stadium. The field is awesome and I definitely encourage people to make the trip here to attend football games during the fall.
Until next time GO PROFS!
