What the Coaches are Saying...
May 03, 2019

“Augustana Viking football has enjoyed a rich history of success for more than 100 years. Four national championships—plus more titles and playoff appearances than any other team in the CCIW—demonstrate that competitive football has been and continues to be an essential part of the college. Today, Augustana is nationally respected as one of the most successful programs in NCAA Division III football. Top athletes and coaches include: * Ken Anderson, 1981 NFL Most Valuable Player * Lynn Thomsen, College Football Hall of Fame class of 1997 * Bob Reade, College Football Hall of Fame class of 1998 * Blaine Westemeyer, 2009 Gagliardi Award recipient as NCAA Division III National Player of the Year * Erik Westerberg, NCAA Postgraduate Scholarship recipient and CCIW Man of the Year The Augie football tradition combines an emphasis on teamwork with a training regimen that develops mental and physical toughness. This enduring commitment has led to: * A record 21 College Conference of Illinois & Wisconsin (CCIW) titles * 15 NCAA Division III playoff appearances * 5 Amos Alonzo Stagg Bowl appearances * 82 NCAA Division III All-American selections * 33 Academic All-Americans * 25 CCIW Players of the Year ACCEPT THE CHALLENGE Our tradition of athletics and academics is more than a well-rounded college experience—it’s a winning combination. One distinction of Augustana’s program is the emphasis on the student-athlete who excels in the classroom and on the playing field. Thirty-six Viking athletes have earned the prestigious NCAA Postgraduate Scholarship and Augustana ranks in the top 10 nationally—among all divisions—for number of student-athletes who have earned Academic All- America recognition by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA). The learning opportunities that further define an Augustana education—internships, guided research, international travel—are equally available to the college’s most dedicated athletes. Former offensive tackle Blaine Westemeyer was an Academic All-American at Augustana and the 2009 recipient of the Gagliardi Trophy as the outstanding football player in NCAA Division III football. A graduate of the University of Iowa Carver College of Medicine, Westemeyer believes in the Augustana student-athlete experience, stating: “That was a major factor…the combination of outstanding academics and a great football program. I wanted to continue to play football and, at the same time, receive an education that would give me a competitive edge when I graduated. Augustana was a great fit for me.” CHECK THE FACTS 115-acre wooded campus near the Mississippi River in the Illinois-Iowa Quad Cities (population around 400,000) 2,500 students with a 12–1 student-faculty ratio Nearly 90 majors and academic areas of study, in the arts and sciences and pre-professional programs, leading to the bachelor of arts degree 13 men’s varsity and 12 women’s varsity teams, plus many club sports and intramural teams More than 150 extra-curricular activities and student groups Augustana’s student-athlete graduation rate is 90%, which is 21 points greater than the Division III average of 69% $2,000 through Augie Choice supports a hands-on learning experience for every student, including study abroad, an internship or research with a professor”
