Berezowitz dedication set at UW-Whitewater
WHITEWATER Bob Berezowitz helped build the UW-Whitewater football program to its present status.
On Saturday, the school will name a building after him.
UW-Whitewater will dedicate its student-athletic complex the Bob Berezowitz Student Athletic Complex in ceremonies starting at noon at Perkins Stadium. The Warhawks play UW-Stevens Point in a nonconference game starting at 1 p.m.
"Bob single-handedly built the student-athletic complex," Paul Plinske, UW-Whitewater director of athletics, said when the complex opened in 2003. "He also played a key role in maintaining Perkins Stadium and helped lay the groundwork for other outdoor facility upgrades."
A complimentary tailgate party at the Coulthart Family Pavilion at 10:30 a.m. will begin Saturday's festivities. Berezowitz will be honored at halftime.
Berezowitz was the head football coach at Whitewater for 22 seasons starting in 1985. He compiled a 158-73-4 record, including eight Wisconsin Intercollegiate Athletic Conference championships and five NCAA Division III playoff berths.
He earned the Division III Coach of the Year honor from the American Football Coaches Association, Football Gazette and American Football Monthly for his 2005 season, and was WIAC Football Coach of the Year seven times.
