SPECIAL RECOGNITION AWARD
When Dan Glowatski left Mount Carmel for Delaware Valley College four years ago, he had compiled a solid, if not spectacular, career as a Tornado wideout. He was really getting started, though. Gaining additional size and strength, as well as maturity, in that extra year; he went from very, very good to spectacular. He was a star from the very first game at Delaware Valley. He leaves behind a record which will be difficult to match, He holds eight all-time receiving records for Delaware Valley; Career Yardage….2645; Career Receptions…154; longest scoring reception….78 yards; reception for season…53; single season yardage….867; single game receptions…11. He caught at least one pass in 35 consecutive games.
He also led the team as its captain in 1984. He was honored by both the Philadelphia Football Writes and the Maxwell Club during his senior year. He made All Middle Atlantic Conference and All Eastern College Athlete Conference for three years running. His final two years he was selected to both the Pizza Hut Division III All American Team and the Associated Press Little All American Team. He was the obvious choice as the team’s Most Valuable Player in 1984.
As dominating a player as he was on the field, however; his greatest exploits were in the classroom. He was names to the NCAA Academic All American Team in recognition of his 3.827 Grade Point Average on a 4.0 scale. He received one of twelve Post Graduate Scholarships awarded by the NCAA. He’s a future Hall of Famer for sure; and a young man we’re proud of now.
