Time to consider nominees for USBWA's Triple Crown
By JOE MITCH / Executive Director
With the start of another season, USBWA members are reminded to give thought to nominating candidates for the numerous awards presented annually by the USBWA.
Here's a list of those awards:
All three awards are presented at the USBWA's awards breakfast held annually at the Final Four site. Send nominations to email@example.com.
LODGE NOTES: The USBWA mourns the passing this past July of long-time member Bob Pille at his home in Tucson, Ariz., after a year-long battle to regain his health following an automobile accident. Pille, a Bradley graduate, worked for the Peoria Journal-Star, the Times Herald in Washington, D.C., the Cincinnati Post and the Detroit Free Press and in 1966 returned to his Illinois roots as a Big Ten sports writer for the Chicago Sun-Times. He retired in 1988 but continued to do freelance work in retirement.
The USBWA put out a call for those who have been members the longest. To date, those who have responded are: Wayne Duke and Don Bryant of Nebraska, both members since the USBWA's inception 50 years ago in 1956; and Larry Kimball, 44 years, since 1962 when he was at Delaware and later Syracuse.
