Whether cheering from the bleachers, enjoying Beaver Pride luncheons or sharing his enthusiasm at pregame tailgating, Willie Stittsworth remains an omnipresent champion of BSU Athletics. His love for the university and its teams began as a BSU student, graduating in 1953. Stittsworth continued to be a proud fan as a faculty member in professional education and health/physical education from 1967-89. His support of the Beavers takes many forms, including his work on the annual Shrine Game and annual donations to BSU football. In October 2016, accompanied by his wife, Arla, he was rightfully honored as grand marshal of the Homecoming parade. He has truly made his mark on BSU Athletics.
