2015 McAndrews Award Winners
The McAndrews Award is the most prestigious award presented to a Dickinson College athlete. In addition to being outstanding student-athletes, the recipients possess strong leadership qualities, demonstrate good sportsmanship, and serve as positive role models for future athletes. The award is presented in honor of Richard H. McAndrews, Doctor of Physical Education and beloved member of the Dickinson College faculty from 1911-1961.
The McAndrews Fund plays a significant role in the support and enhancement of the student-athlete experience
Athletics at Dickinson have thrived, developed and grown into nationally and regionally competitive programs, providing an even more enriching experience for the athletes, coaches, students, parents and alumni. As individuals and teammates, Dickinson scholar-athletes are making remarkable strides - achieving successes in the Centennial Conference and thriving academically. The McAndrews Fund allows our teams to travel for training, purchase essential equipment and software, remain competitive with our peer institutions, hire top coaches and train top scholar-athletes.
"Every year, the McAndrews Fund helps offset the cost of our spring-training trip to either Arizona or Florida. We play up to 10 games against some of the best Division III teams, and through that competition early in the year, we are more prepared to take on the difficult conference schedule when we return. Without the help of the McAndrews Fund, the cost of the trip would be considerably higher, and many of our student-athletes wouldn't be able to participate with the team."
Craig Hanson, Head Baseball Coach
"Our field hockey program benefits greatly from the McAndrews Fund. McAndrews Fund gifts helped us purchase software to break down, analyze and share game film with our team. With the constant changes in technology, we need to keep up-to-date with the best ways to help our team visualize the tactical skills and strategies of the game. We are very grateful for such a phenomenal tool."
