Congrats to Pat and to all the other winners from the D3 ranks :)

2013 CoSIDA Hall of Fame Class
Six current and former sports communications professionals will be inducted into the CoSIDA Hall of Fame at a luncheon and ceremony on Thursday, June 13. This CoSIDA Hall of Fame honor is presented to members of CoSIDA who have made outstanding contributions to the field of college athletic communications.

Lifetime Achievement Awards
At that same luncheon on June 13, CoSIDA will recognize five professionals with its Lifetime Achievement Award. This award is presented to CoSIDA members who have served at least 25 years in the profession (as of June 2013) who are retiring or leaving the profession. Those members include Ken Cerino at Western New England University; Carole Grills from Smith College;

Warren Berg Award (College division award)
Several other awards will be given at that same June 14th luncheon, including recognition of Sheila Stevenson of Rowan University as the Warren Berg Award winner. The award recognizes Stevenson as the top professional in the college division.

Thanks -- indeed, it has not been 30 years. It's been 15 -- Rev is right. I just turned 40. :)

This is a huge honor. I'm awestruck when I read the names of the other people who have received this award. It's great that CoSIDA has recognized someone who covers college sports outside of Division I and I really owe this recognition to the Division III SIDs who have been pushing for this.

Kind of surreal. At least I have a few months to work on a speech.

We understand how you are "awestruck" and  how "surreal" that it seems to you, but you have 13,000+ posters, a million posts on the message boards and who knows how many hits on the home page (now the "famous hit counter" is no longer there.   ;)  )

The simple truth is that "D3sports.com" is the "glue" that holds D3 together.  Your love, your dedication and your passion for D3 is greatly appreciated by us and is a burr in the saddle of the NCAA.

What you have accomplished as an avocation on a shoe string budget and what the NCAA does with its millions of dollars to spend on a web presence is a testimony to your vision and genius!

For my 13,000+ fellow posters who have not posted yet, a simple "thank you".    :)

Ralph pretty well nails it. Your website has also made it possible for us to reconnect with old college friends and to make new friends. I joined in 2005 and it's been great.

Great to see you were honored with this award, Pat. You qualified for it 14 years ago. ;) Where would we be without the D3Sports.com Network?
