Star Athletes Motivate Football Team
For several years, Head Football Coach Joe Fincham has invited football alumni to share their advice and inspire current players to perform at their best. This year continued the tradition as Fincham welcomed Scott Watters ’87 prior to the official start of the season. Best known by his nickname “Muddy,” Watters was a record-setting linebacker for the football team. A four-year letterwinner, two-time team MVP and 2004 Hall of Honor inductee, Watters holds the Wittenberg records for tackles in a season (164) and a career (472). He earned All-OAC honors three times in his career, capped by first-team honors in 1986. As the team captain that year, Watters also earned the team’s Golden Helmet Award, first-team All-America honors and the Lee Tressel Award as the top player in the state of Ohio.
