Waddle Coaches Kids In Germany
Half a world away from Wittenberg and Springfield hometown, Assistant Football Coach Andy Waddle ’03 found a captive audience while coaching 95 high school-aged players at the Kaiserslautern Youth Tackle Football Camp in Germany.
Waddle, the Tigers’ defensive coordinator, made sure to pack plenty of Wittenberg gear for his trip, which sparked a lot of unexpected interest amongst the campers and their parents. About 80 of the campers were American citizens whose parents are serving their country on military bases throughout Europe.
Marshall University Offensive Coordinator John Shannon organized the camp, and he invited Waddle after meeting him at a football camp at the University of Toledo. Waddle was the lone coach representing an NCAA Division III institution at a camp that included numerous NCAA Division I coaches and even one NFL coach.
