We wanted to take the opportunity here at NIUHuskies.com on this to salute veterans all across the country and in particular those here in the NIU family including football players Jake Coffman and Josh Wilber, who served in the Marine Corps.
NIU women's track & field and cross country coach Mark McConeghy, head women's tennis coach Ryun Ferrell, director of ticket sales Cliff Bottigliero and the "Voice of the Huskies" Bill Baker all served our country as a member of the United States military.
Andrea Adelson of ESPN.com's college football blog posted this feature on Coffman earlier this afternoon. It talks about his time in the Corps, his journey at NIU and the flag he carried out before NIU defeated Toledo, 65-30, Tuesday night. Coffman will join host Bill Baker and teammates Chad Spann and Chandler Harnish tonight for "Inside Huskie Football" at Fatty's at 7 p.m. If you can't make it out to Fatty's tune into 1360 AM WLBK and listen.
